Suspicious Minds Live in Las Vegas
August 11th, 1970
Watch this all the way through.
This has everything, music, power dancing, power swagger, mildly sexual power thuggery, power backup singer intimidation, power thai chi, impressive power stretching and did i mention power drumming.
I’m filing it under stunts.
It’s been a long time since I watched anything Elvis.
The last thing must have been the super cool King Creole
Skip to 1:40 for the dope track.

'I'm on my way buddy, I work for me'
I missed Mogwai’s new album earlier this year
Stream Rave Tapes right here
Skip to 10:10 for one of the best songs, Remurdered
Or to 13:05 for this awesome bit that sounds like the credits at the end of the best 1990s video arcade machine in history.

Seasons (Waiting On You)
Future Islands on Letterman. Little late to the game on this, but man that’s a performance. I’m picking up what Sam Herring’s putting down.
Pitchfork excellently quoted Sasha Hecht’s description of Herring as “an undercover cop who just accidentally did coke for the first time.” And it is glorious.
That is hilarious.
I’ll take all of that you’ve got.
Robes from Pinata
Freddie Gibbs & Madlib ft. Earl Sweatshirt & Domo Genesis
I love what Egon wrote on instagram
Today #Madlib and I release this album on Madlib Invazion. This was an inside job - only the loyal crew, both from our camp and @freddiegibbs, were down. No outside label help, no nothing - two grown men who’ve seen a lot of ups and even more downs in the music biz scrimping and saving for nearly four years to invest in a real record from one of the last great rappers standing. I’m very proud of ‘Piñata’ and ask that if you’re interested you BUY, not rip, this album. Art by @jeffjank with a cover photo by @peterbeste and, believe it or not, a fair share of cleared samples.
