Free Mixtape: Armandi - "The Cover Up"

From That's Major:


Sometimes you just drop something to keep the people on their toes. Amandi snatched a few industry joints and flipped them his own way. Completed in a week, The Cover Up is a project that shows what happens when a talented songwriter has some free time between crafting hits for others. And the results are classic Nyce Guy style. Still creative. Still fun. And still Amandi.

MP3: Big Pauper - "Big Sick"

From Riot Act Media:

MP3: Big Pauper - "Big Sick"

Download and share Big Pauper's lead single, "Big Sick", off of Beyond My Means! The album drops April 26th from Circle Into Square Records.
Big Pauper has had a busy twenty six years on earth. Formerly performing under the name Panzah Zandahz, Portland's Big Pauper is an acclaimed producer, deejay and visual artist with a penchant for forgotten media and discarded technologies. His ten year stint managing the abstract hip hop label Token Recluse found a wide variety of projects in his lap. Pauper established himself with the notoriety of a full length cut and paste reinterpretation of first Radiohead, and then Beck. In their wake, Pauper performed at Scribble Jam & the Red Bull Music Academy, toured Europe a handful of times and worked with the likes of Two Ton Sloth, Cut Chemist and the Dandy Warhols. Big Pauper also has been producing circuit bent video work within the world-renowned sound art collective Folktek and gearing his projects towards a variety of video-art installations.

His most recent effort Beyond My Means sits comfortably somewhere between a 93 era instrumental hip hop record and some of the best downtempo electronic work out there today. It is a dusty, glitchy and often times noisy tapestry of found sounds, VHS beats and analog synth textures. The album has it's roots deep in sixties psych rock, the dregs of new age tape crustiness, our waning industrial society and most evidently, schlock cinema (everything from Portuguese horror, to the sleaziest of nunsploitation). The album draws comparisons to recent works from the Books, Broadcast, Odd Nosdam and Edan. Beyond My Means unfolds like a grindhouse double feature, that private press record you can't believe you found, or your third eye chakra babbling on after a group reiki session.

Big Pauper's Beyond My Means will be available on vinyl, cassette and digital this April 26th, 2011 via Circle Into Square Records/Fake Four Inc! Download and share last fall's  Cops Eat Flowers EP,   your free introduction to Big Pauper's planet.
