Jag & Brah Release Shinji Masuko LP

Hey there brahs and sahs! Today in conjunction with Jagjaguwar imprint Brah Records, we’re celebrating the release of Shinji Masuko’s Woven Music LP.  Oneida / Brah mastermind Kid Millions wrote the following special message for the occasion:

It is a very special day for all of us at Brah – arguably the most beautiful recording we’ve ever released (excepting the Dirty Faces’ Rocky Bleier) is available today!

Shinji Masuko is the founder of DMBQ and the guitarist and official luthier for the Boredoms. . .transformed some music originally recorded to run underneath sections of the Boredoms’ incredible Boadrum composition into stand alone as a single release. It’s coming out on limited edition vinyl and download. . .

If you wanna check out how heavy these tracks are before you pick up the vinyl check them out on Soundcloud HERE. Read more about Shinji and Woven Music HERE.

 

 

Listen to New Parts & Labor

Parts & Labor’s Constant Future will be in stores March 8 (March 7 in the U.K.) but you can get your first taste of the future today. We’re proud to present the first Mp3, the title track from Constant Future. The song begins with a signature Parts & Labor synth melody before being pummeled with a percussive drone ticking along like clockwork, literally moving us into the future. Parts & Labor’s Dan Friel sings of our collective thirst for the “next” and the “newest.”

New Mp3: Parts & Labor “Constant Future”

“Constant Future” is just the first song of many to come as Parts & Labor will be streaming a new track from the album each week on their website between now and the March 8 release date. Check out the newly revamped website, designed by Parts & Labor’s BJ Warshaw (who is also responsible for the album’s brilliant cover art) right HERE.

In other Parts & Labor news, the band will be traveling down to Austin, TX for the South By Southwest Music Festival in March. On their way down to the festival they’ll be joined on tour w/ fellow Brooklynites and Brah recording artists Pterodactyl. Parts & Labor will also be touring Europe in May. Check out all the dates after the jump.
