As I mentioned earlier this past week, Pig Food Records teamed up with Seasons Skate Shop for their second annual collaboration. This year, they called upon the master Jeremy Fish to design the artwork for a special edition skateboard deck and it came out awesome. It’s now available at Seasons and online via PFR. And to round out the release, PFR also debuted their music video for the posse cut (available on flexi-vinyl with the purchase of the collaboration deck) titled, “Beef Patty Freaks.” I’ve watched this video at least five times now and I still can’t decide who has my vote for favorite verse. Check it:
This year’s collaboration also features a PFR posse cut featuring Giant Gorilla Dog Thing, elsphinx, Benn Grim, Grizzly Grimace, Alaska, and Dizzo, produced by PJ Katz. The song is called “Beef Patty Freaks”, and each board comes packaged with an exclusive flexi-vinyl copy of it.
This year’s limited edition collaboration includes a skateboard featuring the artwork of Jeremy Fish, a flexi of the new PFR song and to round it out, they also threw a snapback into the mix. Everything will be available this Friday, November 22nd courtesy of Pig Food Records and Seasons Skate Shop. Big up to all involved, this year’s collaboration falls nothing short of awesome.
At the end of this month, twelve of the area’s best in hardcore and metal will be joining forces to say a fond farewell to Valentine’s. Many (if not most) of the bands coming together for the No Pepper: A Hardcore/Metal Farewell tribute have played Valentine’s at various chapters in their careers – whether as their first show ever as a band or as the location of their most recent show played. I’m really excited for the opportunity to see these bands together all on the same bill, and especially as Valentine’s will be transitioning to its new location and chapter in the near future.
I’ve compiled a brief introductory guide to the bands playing the one-night fest. Hit the jump and take some time to get acquainted!

Partially local band Jake Moon released a video for their song Fairlawn today. If you haven’t heard of Jake Moon before, check their EP on Bandcamp, and if you like what you hear, you can check their out their show tomorrow (Thursday) at Valentine’s with Pony in the Pancake and Laura Murphy. See you there.

A lot of the music that has been released throughout 2013 has been a nostalgic reinterpretation of sounds presented in earlier decades. Some bands and artists appear to obsessed with a different time period and proceed to mimic their influences, while others choose to bring a modern flavor to a classic sound. This is what UK singer FKA Twigs does on her new EP, aptly titled EP2. On this short collection of tracks, Twigs lays ethereal vocals over airy and atmospheric production provided by Arca. What we manage to get is an EP inspired by the likes of Tricky and Massive Attack, with the production chops of some R&B contemporaries such as The Weeknd.
In a recent video, Anthony Fantano (a.k.a theneedledrop) addressed the question regarding music and image. While music and image have always gone together to some degree, it is pretty much agreeable that if the image eclipses the art, then the music will have a short lived shelf life. There have been musicians who have let their antics outshine their talent (i.e. Kanye West), as well as those who strictly live for the spotlight (ummm…Miley Cyrus?). However, in the midst of all the pandemonium, there are artists that use their music, along with a strong visual concept, to weave together a memorable narrative.
Janelle Monae, with the release of The Electric Lady, continues to expand upon the eccentricity displayed on The ArchAndroid. The result is one of the most ambitious R&B/pop albums this year, one that mixes rock, soul, funk and dance fusion all together for something truly grandiose.
