BIG NEWS DAY: The good people over at the Walker Art Center have just world premiered the awesome new music video for Dessa’s “Fighting Fish” remix, produced by The Hood Internet!!! You can read all about it from their site right HERE, along with a detailed explanation on how the project came together from Dessa herself. The video was directed by the unstoppable force that is Isaac Gale and David Jensen, and it is truly incredible. We’ve been hinting for awhile that the original “Fighting Fish” video was just the first glimpse of a two-parter, and this new one really ups the ante by about ten billion. Check them both out back-to-back below, and grab the entire Parts of Speech, Re-Edited remix EP on iTunes right HERE.
SO SWEET!!! Seriously love how these both turned out. Dessa and her band will be hitting the road this week for a few Midwest dates before joining up with WHY? in Pontiac and heading east on a two week tour. Check out the dates and cities below, and click HERE for ticket info and even more details.
Speaking of upcoming shows, don’t forget that this Saturday it’s The F*cking Best Show Ever, curated by our own P.O.S!!! This will be Stef’s first headlining solo show in almost two years, and he’s doing it real big to celebrate. Performances by P.O.S, SZA, Leif, Busdriver, Open Mike Eagle, Alan Kingdom, ZuluZuluu, and DJ sets from Polica and TIIIIIIIIIP, all taking place outside in beautiful downtown Minneapolis. Not to mention the crazy afterparty at First Ave featuring sets from yours truly and the one and only Dam-Funk! I’ve got a bunch of special guests lined up for this show, definitely not gonna be one to miss. Check out the flyer below for more details, and grab your tickets to the show (HERE) and the afterparty (HERE) right now!
Sims has been crushing a bunch of shows these past couple weeks as he makes his way out west with Hilltop Hoods. They play Los Angeles tonight (9/9) and Seattle on Thursday (9/11) before crossing the border into Canada for a run of eight shows up there. Click HERE for all the details and ticket info.
It’s a bit of a shorter post this week because of what a crazy fast-paced studio schedule we’ve got going on. I’m heading out as we speak to put the finishing touches on this Mike Mictlan HELLA FRREAL album master, and then we’ll be wrapping up final mixes on the crew record later this weekend. INSANE. More on that all that stuff very soon. So excited about all these new fall and winter releases. Doomtree Season is officially upon us.
In the meantime though (intricate foreshadowing of impending Helmet reference), I’ll leave you with a couple Bonus Baby Pics. The TWINZ are rocking these helmets (BAM!) like no other, and just in time for football too. Here they are kicking it outside on one of these last beautiful summer days. Lou’s all smiles, totally into it. Cam’s remains the steady and cautious skeptic of the bunch.
Here’s Penny letting the dudes know who the real boss is around these parts. These guys seriously love her. They follow her every move, which is only feeding more and more into her extreme DIVA lifestyle. Not looking good for us.
And here’s the DIVA herself on a field trip to the Arboretum with Grandma, getting her snack on and more than likely singing either Frozen or that Katie Perry “Fireworks” song from Madagascar 3 at the top of her lungs. She is totally nutz.
Alright, that about does it for this post. In case you somehow missed the brand new Dessa “Fighting Fish” remix video at the top of the post, here it is again for good measure. Check it out and help us spread the word if you get a second this week. Trying to get as many eyeballs on this thing as possible. Enormous shouts to The Hood Internet for the sweet audioz, and Isaac Gale and David Jensen for the sweet vizualz!
I hope to see a ton of you out at The F*cking Best Show (and Afterparty) Ever this Saturday. If not, next Tuesday it is! There are so many more big announcements on the way. We’re just getting started.
