Have you been eagerly awaiting new Small Black material? Us too. Luckily for everyone, the boys have been hard at work making the new record. SPIN recently chatted up SB, getting all the details and filling us in on what to expect. Read the interview HERE. Maybe even better than an interview? Get excited – it’s an awesome new album trailer featuring “Limits of Desire,” a combination of songs from the record. Make your Friday the best day ever and watch the video above!
“I think as you get a little older and more learned in your craft, you want to show everything and not hide behind multiple vocal takes or any sort of haze or crud,” says frontman Josh Kolenik. “We’re going to live or die by our vocals and there’s no sweeping it under the rug.” – Josh Kolenik
Small Black’s Moon Killer mixtape is now available on this 11th day of the 11th month and 11th full moon of 2011. The mixtape features a bunch of new jams, two collaborations with Heems of Das Racist, remixes by Star Slinger & Phonetag and some other goodies. They’ll be playing a release party next Friday at Glasslands in Brooklyn w/ Heavenly Beat and some very special guests. Nab tickets right HERE. Visit Small-Black.com for more info on the show and the mixtape. For now, Moon Killer on repeat:
We’ve been busy busy busy these past few months getting everything together for our CMJ showcase and last night it went off with a bang. If you didn’t make it out to Union Pool, here are some photos of the awesomeness. Try not to be too sad when you see what you missed. If you were there, well, congratulations! Stick around for the rest of the festival and catch some bands from our sister label Dead Oceans.
Here’s a little treat for your ears. It’s the title track from Small Black’s Moon Killer mixtape coming 11/11/11 to a filesharing site near you. We’ve had this on repeat since the guys sent it to us. I’ve actually been living in that space around the 2:20 mark where the beat drops. Come hang!
