New York, NY- August 2011: As the buzzworthy hip-hop group Animal Farm continues to gather momentum, they have decided to release the title track and leading song from their new album Culture Shock for FREE.  After delivering acclaimed singles featuring legends Talib Kweli and Abstract Rude, the Portland based hip-hop group has teamed up with the incomparable X-Ecutioners DJ Rob Swift. In order to commemorate Rob Swift's recent selection as one of America's 100 Best DJs through DJ Times Magazine, Animal Farm and Swift are offering "Culture Shock" for Free to only the first 100 people to download the track through Soundcloud.  As always, Rob Swift displays flawless scratching over a banging Gen.Erik beat, laced with hard rhymes by Animal Farm's Serge Severe, Gen.Erik, Fury, and Hanif Wondir.  Listeners may also recognize the KRS-One "Animal Farm" vocal sample, taken from Animal Farm's "Peace" featuring the Teacher himself, off their first album The Unknown.  Check out the radio friendly "Culture Shock" here.

Animal Farm's latest album Culture Shock is currently ranked #5 on the CMJ College Radio Hip-Hop Charts.  DJs can contact Jess Weber at Co-Sign Collective (jessica@co-signcollective.com) to receive the full album.

Devo Spice Update - 8/3/2011: New Sketch Comedy Album!


Devo Spice Update - 8/3/2011: New Sketch Comedy Album!

Your friendly neighborhood comedy rapper here with some big news about our new sketch comedy album.

--== NEW CIRQUE DU SO WHAT CD ==--
--== EVERYTHING ELSE ==--

--== NEW CIRQUE DU SO WHAT CD ==--
Everything else is minor.  This is what I want to talk about.  My sketch comedy group Cirque du So What, made up of me, the great Luke Ski, Shoebox of Worm Quartet, and Chris Mezzolesta of Power Salad will have a new CD out very shortly.  The album is called Stupid Cowboy Thing, Volume 1: GRANDMOTHER!  The first single hit The FuMP on Friday.  You can download that sketch, "Staying Fat,"  for free here: http://www.thefump.com/fump.php?id=1449

The album is currently available for pre-order and I'll be taking pre-orders up until I have the physical CDs in my hands, which I expect to happen in about a week.  Until then, if you pre order you will get:

1. The entire album delivered to you instantly, digitally.
2. An exclusive digital bonus album containing additional sketches, outtakes, and live recordings.

Stupid Cowboy Thing, Volume 1: GRANDMOTHER! features an hour of hilarious sketches, phony commercials, and bizarre music. The Guess The Context series continues unashamedly, and of course there are appearances by The Tile Guy. There's also a really inappropriate song that you will find yourself singing at all the wrong times because it will get stuck in your head and will surface and the most inopportune times.

Once the pre-orders end the bonus CD goes away, so if you want the extra content you have to order it now.  The album is available from the store at The FuMP here:

Watch for Stupid Cowboy Thing, Volume 2: Additional Squid in 2012.


--== EVERYTHING ELSE ==--
In other news, the July edition of The Insider is posted.  In it I talk about Nerdapalooza, my first dead-tree review of Gnome Sane, the new Cirque du So What CD, and more.

Spice Rack subscribers also get an early mix of my They Might Be Giants cover for the Mink Car cover project, which, due to the nature of my existence lately, turned into a collaboration with TV's Kyle.

You can check the latest episode of The Insider here:
http://www.devospice.com/podcast.php

And for the month of August the free songs at DevoSpice.com are I Hate Mondays and The Geeks Come Out At Night, chosen mostly at random, because they haven't been featured in a while.  You can download the songs for free here:
http://www.devospice.com/listen.php

And don't forget I'll be attending Worldcon in Reno, NV later this month along with Dr. Demento and Rob Balder.  (Note: Throwing Toasters had to cancel.  Rob is filling in.)  Details here:

MP3: Young Dane - "Seein' Sideways"


MP3: Young Dane - "Seein' Sideways"

Young Dane the son of HipHop legend and icon Dana Dane was
born in the Fort Greene area of Brooklyn. He resided in Virginia,
Houston and LA before settling down in Yonkers, NY with his
mother. As a student of Lincoln high school, Young Dane joined
theater and excelled as an actor in many school plays some of which
he assisted in writing and revising with his acting teachers.

Like so many children born into the HipHop generation Dane was
exposed to the music and culture at a very young age. At the age of
twelve Young Dane wrote and recorded his first song with a
classmate. It was natural. From then on unbeknownst to his father
Young Dane continued writing and reciting raps. Dane says “My
dad I had no idea I was into making music and rapping like I do, he
was really surprised to find out I could sing as well.” Dane’s singing
will be a key to his success. Multi talented artist such as Kanye West,
Pharrell, Drake, Diggy Simmons, Chris Brown and more who
incorporate their own singing vocals on to their own rap tracks are
the most successful in the industry today.

Young Dane has discovered his voice and is set to release his debut
Mix Tape album “Adventures of the Flawed Dreamer: Escape from
Apathy”. Young Dane states,” This collection of songs were inspired
and influenced by such artists as Nas, Slick Rick, A Tribe called
Quest, Mos Def, and Lupe Fiasco amongst others. His inspiration for
the Mixtape comes from an introspective angle, speaking on inner
feelings derived from his experiences in life. Combining his
knowledge of theater with music, Young Dane plans to split the
Mixtape into five acts. Each act is to display and transition the story
of "Escape from apathy" creating a world within the music.

Young Dane is steadily carving his own artistic design into the fabric
of the Hip Hop culture.

Info on Make Up Your Mind: The perfect relationship, when it comes down to it, is what most of us are in search for. The reality is there is no such thing as “a perfect relationship”. You have to put in the work. “Relationships, easy to get into, hard to maintain”, as Chris Rock would say, is truth. Anyone can find a compatible partner but are you able to work as a team when the going gets tough? You get as much out of your relationship as you put into it. Make Up Your Mind is a relationship based song. Take a listen to the chorus; the lyrics may resonate in your current and/or past situation. If and/or when you are in the midst of “tough times”, what do you do? Do you grow together or do you grow apart?
