Mississippi Man Rumbles

Thursday night @ 3 Clubs in Hollywood it's the May version of The Rumble: Los Angeles with three more acts performing that should be on your radar. Mississippi Man headlines, backed by the Bay Area’s Ferocious Few, and L.A.’s Dirt Dress. Thursday's party is going to be a whiskey-infused mess after these three acts drop their delta blues meets 2010 rock n roll on all of us.


Shlohmo to release Shlomoshun Deluxe LP May 24


Shlohmo, aka Henry Laufer brings a keen ear to the music he makes, using mostly found sound, fragile old gear and a laptop. With beat and soundscape arrangements that leave the listener hypnotized, the songs breath life from the organic and electronic worlds colliding. Fan favorites "Hot Boxing The Cockpit" and "Antigravity" place him right amongst neu-bass contemporaries like Flying Lotus, Nosaj Thing, Ras G and others in the Low End Theory-fueled Los Angeles beat scene while a track like "7am" oozes Dilla-esque swagger; all the while remaining effortlessly cinematic. Laufer will release Shlomoshun Deluxe on May 24, as a follow-up to his acclaimed Shlomoshun EP out late 2009.
