80 Other Bands With Official Sneakers

Last week the Animal Collective bros released an official mixtape for their new … sneakers. That is a thing now. Gotta keep fans on their toes (ouch, sorry). The shoes which you can see here benefit the Socorro island Conservation Fund, and they are cruelty free, except to your eyes.

Big Boi Does “Follow Us” On Letterman

Big Boi brought Vonnegutt to help him on the chorus, and he asked people to follow him on Twitter at the end of the performance. He’s got a little over 73,000 right now, so, not bad. Watch:… More »

Øyafestivalen 2010 In Photos

Beyond taking place in beautiful Oslo, Norway one of Øya Festival’s strongest points is its eclecticism: When I attended in 2006 (and met Amrit), I was excited by Enslaved, the Knife, and Morrissey performing in the same space (though not on the same stage at the same time, unfortunately).

Pitchfork Music Festival 2010: Sunday Recap

The final day of 2010’s Pitchfork Festival was just as hot as Saturday, with stages that needed quick shots of energy to pull the audience out of its languor.

Big Boi And The Roots Do “Shutterbugg” On Fallon

As he did on Leno the other night, Big Boi brought the Sir Luscious smoker “Shutterbugg” to late night TV, with a band on hand to recreate the cut’s freaky talkbox syncopations and right-brained funk bed. Only this time, he just relied on the late night show in question’s house band. Smart. More »

Big Boi Does “Shutterbugg” On Leno

Antwan Patton’s on something of a goodwill kick, maybe just paying forward the positivity he’s garnering at every turn on the back of the heavily rotated rhyme-freak summer opus Sir Luscious Lef Foot: The Son Of Chico Dusty LP. (You’d know he’s doing well if you followed Big Boi on Twitter, where he’s quite literally… More »

Big Boi – “Shutterbugg” Video

Big Boi’s new video for “Shutterbugg” has talk boxes, Tron girls, and puppets. That pretty much covers everything, and is pretty much why I’m sure Big Boi would make a really excellent father. More »

New Fantasia Video – “Hood Boy” (Feat. Big Boi)

It’s a sordid affair, keeping track of American Idol alum; one day you’re impressed by Kelly’s choice of bassist, next thing you know the Clay-gagging-Ripa send-up is practically the most covered aspect of the American Music Awards. Somewhere in between is Fantasia Barrino and her new track, which features a few verses from Outkast’s Big… More »
