Sunny Dayz Playlist

The Sun wearing sunglasses?! That’s wacky! Who thinks of this stuff?

Now here’s something us Michiganders haven’t seen in a while: the Sun. With less than a month left of classes before summer, here are some tunes to blast as you throw on your shorts, sprint outside, and bathe in the sun. As the cool kids say – “Sun’s out, guns out”

Oneohtrix Point Never Concert Review

It had been a long time since I was last at a concert in Detroit and longer still since I had seen an electronic act in the area. For the most part, rap and metal were the two mainstays I’d see live in Metropolitan Detroit. So when I heard that experimental electronic artist Oneohtrix Point Never was not only performing in the city but doing so in a venue I had never been to, it was almost too quick the way I grabbed up tickets.

It wasn’t that I was worried that they’d sell out. As much as I’d like more people to appreciate the cut up and sampled rhythms that Oneohtrix has made famous on his 9 records so far, his presence only stands tall in the oft ignored subgenre of ambient electronica. For me, I wanted the tickets as a souvenir for a night of many firsts. It was the first concert I would be seeing in the actual city of Detroit, my first Oneohtrix show, the first time seeing the Museum of Contemporary Art Detroit (MOCAD) used as a venue, and the first time I took a shot of Serbian vodka from a guy covered in face tattoos who kept shouting “I LOVE THIS JAM” when the intermission music came on between acts.

Shannon and the Clams – Rat House

After you watch this video, you’ll know why it’s our Jam of the Day. The lyrics will be stuck in your brain for days, “I don’t wanna/ I don’t wanna/ DIE DIE DIE DIE.” The video was made by the band themselves and is perfectly weird. A gorilla playing the drums with fried chicken? Check. Skateboarders wearing strange costumes? Check. And just to add some extra sparkle, LOTS of glitter. Shannon and the Clams’ album, Dreams in the Rat House is out now on Hardly Art.

Thee Oh Sees – Drop

If you’re wondering why we’ve been talking about Thee Oh Sees so much, you obviously haven’t been listening. They just released a spiraling new video for their song “Drop” off of their new record out April 19th on Castle Face. The video is animated like the last Oh Sees video for the song, “Penetrating Eye” but in a different style. You know when you get bored and start to doodle in class? Yeah, this video is just like that except the drawings come to life then hypnotize you.
