INCHES reviews Dâm-Funk’s 5LP Box o’ Funk (restocked at Stones Throw online) [MP3]

Dâm-Funk, 'Toeachizown' (Stones Throw)

Stones Throw has pressed up some more copies of the incredible Dâm-Funk 5LP box set, which gives me an excuse to finally write about it. This hefty collection has been dominating my at-home rotation for some time now. I think it might have something to do with that incredible hair.

Read about it (the record), and download a track for free at INCHES.

INCHES reviews Petrojviv Blasting Co.’ Debut LP, ‘A History of Public Relationsh Dilemmae’

Petrojvic Blasting Co., 'A History of Public Relations Dilemmae'

Friends, Balkans, Hollywood Farmers Market regulars, lend me your ears. INCHES has returned in its new, slimmed-down form. One L.A. vinyl release a week, with all the amenities you’ve come to expect: photo, MP3, reviews, purchase info, and a sales chart from a local wax merchant. This week, I’m proud to cover the full-length vinyl debut of the Petrojvic Blasting Co. I had the pleasure to interview these fellas for the Killsonic feature in LA Weekly, and for last year’s “People” issue, and they’re good men, deserving of a good record.

L.A. Beat Scene’s TAKE Announces Alpha Pup LP, Gives Out Free ‘Incredibright’ MP3

TAKE on the titular mount?

Today, Alpha Pup Records — the Downtown L.A. label behind the Low End Theory club and numerous worthwhile beat scene releases — announced the long-awaited next full-length record from TAKE. Only Mountain will be released on April 20, and judging from the free MP3 the label’s sharing, it’ll be a roiling pot of old school IDM, ’90s R&B percussive elements, Dubstep bass-derived doom, and ethereal melodies.
