Earnest Blount - Dr. Blount's Extended Sound Play


I know we've been slacking on the posts recently, but it's hot as fuck and all I can think about is summer. But we've got a very exciting new release for yall. One of our own, Earnest Blount, come's through with his first EP, an extremely thoughtful and experimental piece. Free of course.


words via Earnest Blount:
Here it is, Dr. Blount presents: layers of unfolding chords and equations and watnot paired with improvised melodic fragments. Almost 24 minutes, a group effort without explicit collaborations, but all you guys made it as much as me. We (u and me) used technology WITHOUT "technological rationality" and "other-directedness," cos this shit is inner to outer, not the other way around. Many thanks to the host of spatio-temporal travelers who lent their infinite wisdom and insight, directly or indirectly. We did it!!!

URGENT: FIGHT KUTMAH’S DEPORTATION!!!

THIS IS REALLY REALLY IMPORTANT! PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING AND HELP SUPPORT!

via Dublab:

FREE KUTMAH!!!

Please support Justin “Kutmah” McNulty in his deportation defense. He was detained by US Immigration authorities on Wednesday morning and is now being held at an INS facility in New Mexico.

He is facing immediate deportation unless we can reopen the case and show the authorities how vital it is for Justin to stay in our lives. This vibrant artist, dj and producer is a beloved member of the Los Angeles creative community. Help Kutmah remain in the United States!

To help, please visit > freekutmah.com and sign the petition.


We also urge you to customize or simply add your name and e-mail to the letter pasted below and send it ASAP to our friend Gaby Hernandez: gaby5hernandez@gmail.com.

Also consider sending your letter to California Senators: Dianne Feinstein – senator@feinstein.senate.gov and Barbara Boxer – senator@boxer.senate.gov.

LETTER TEMPLATE

To Whom it May Concern:

Justin McNulty is a highly talented artist, DJ and music producer who is a beloved member of the Los Angeles creative community.

For well over a decade he has devoted his substantial skills to the betterment of our community through positive, artistic actions.

Mr. McNulty has selflessly donated his time and exceptional talents to numerous charitable and non-profit causes. He has garnered worldwide acclaim through these efforts based in the United States.

Mr. McNulty’s individual community arts service is a testament to modern philanthropy. In an age when institutional funding is slim he has taken personal action to better our country by inspiring its citizens through progressive cultural outreach.

I fully support Justin McNulty’s right to stay in the United States and urge your positive and swift action in this matter. His deportation would be a devastating loss to Los Angeles and the American arts.

Thank you for your time and consideration.

The Undersigned

pOnk - Wool And Water EP


<a href="http://ponk.bandcamp.com/album/wool-and-water-ep">BOAT by pOnk</a>

This is Ponk from Germany. So so nice. Much respect to this dude. He hit me up on myspace and turns out he mixed our friend Oy's album. Played a few months back with Oy while she was out in SF on tour. She has a nuts live setup. Be sure to check out both these cats.

Mbira Spirit

A little downloadable treat. I plan on releasing a proper album in late summer/early fall which will include "Mbira Spirit" among other things... but until then I thought I'd try to keep people tuned in with a little free content and make sure that any interested people are aware of what's to come. If you enjoy it, click the arrow in the player to add it to your itunes. More coming soon...
