A “rare groove” if there ever was one, Haruomi Hosono “Rose & Beast” trucks on every level. Coming to you from Japan’s finest rock and roll band Happy End – as well as a more prolonged stay as Yellow Magic Orchestra – Mr. Hosono obviously has some sort of alchemist touch. He eventually got into video game music, and this song is the only addition I could ever think of when it comes to something like Katamari Damacy’s soundtrack. Roll it massive.

They want to sound like they promised their daddies they’d make it for them and damn if they didn’t nail it. Promised Land Sound’s debut album comes out today via Paradise of Bachelors and we remember when they played their first show way back when at our Summer Party…they were just innocent little Promised Land then. Free of legal issues and way worse at their instruments. Now look at ‘em, all boutique and high and ripping sweet licks and singing. D/L a track by them at the bottom because they can jam.
Record done at the Bomb Shelter by Andrija Tokic and Jem Cohen and that’s all. The release show is this Saturday – 9/28 – at Jem and co.’s Found Object with label mate Steve Gunn and Weekend Babes.
FYI: Guitarist Sean Thompson played lead on the Blacktooth Release of TV John – The Dream Man.
Listen: Promsed Land Sound – River No More

Tonight, all the way up north in the fabled Quad Cities – where legends are purported to spend their retirement drinking Mai Tais – Blacktooth Records gladly holds hands with Rozz Tox and, not unlike proud parents, present Ranch Ghost and Chrome Pony on one bill and of one mind.
We love the people behind and in Rozz Tox as much as they love China and Albert Pyun films. So go, enjoy yourselves. Make money and do the right thing. Ask the hard questions. See if Donnie’s eye is ok. And maybe we’ll do it again sometime.

On a lighter note today, have you all heard about the ear-to-the-tracks rumor that’s going around about Crust Punks getting way, way, way in to Kanye’s new record? We here at Blacktooth Records know the guy that started the whole Crust Punk thing and he said this is unlike anything he’s ever seen (for the record: he gave Yeezus a crisp endorsement). It’s a phenomenon for sure. This sub-group tends to be generally untrustworthy and in possession of mercurial tastes at best – in addition to only enjoying things in an ironic sense: Waka Flocka Flame, Anarchy, etc – however this one seems to have actually stuck.
Must be the booze, misogyny, and Deepak Chopra references. Whatever it is, I’m glad.

We’ve mentioned these dudes before. We’ve done this before. This is an interesting way of seeing them and I mean interesting with keeping its etymology in mind. Doors at 8, $20 gets you everything you want in life. Mostly.

Currently on hour 4 of this 12 hour mix of Black Classical’s History of Spiritual Jazz. It’s worth a listen and a dig through (Eddie Gale!?), however you gotta do it.
