Download Domo Genesis Under The Influence Mixtape

But he’s made big strides as a pure MC, and his new Under The Influence mixtape is the work of a solid, confident rapper. On the tape, Domo raps over time-honored soul-rap beats like Scarface’s “Guess Who’… More »

Little Dragon – “Seconds (Syd The Kid Remix)”

Swedish synth pop standouts Little Dragon stay heavy in the remix game, so it’s no surprise that their “Seconds” is itself the subject of a remix, this time by Odd Future behind-the-scenes stalwart (and resident female member) Syd The Kid. Grab it below. It’s nice. More »

Odd Future Bottled In Detroit

Maybe a Tegan & Sara fan infiltrated Odd Future’s show at Detroit’s Majestic Theatre. As the band recounted via Tumblr, they were pelted with bottles — a la Guns ‘N Roses or Morrissey — very early into their set. Here:… More »

Earl Sweatshirt Speaks

The Odd Future phenomenon comes with a good deal of inbuilt drama, the most interesting subplot being the case of Earl Sweatshirt.

Tyler, The Creator – “Analog” (Live, Featuring Hodgy Beats & Syd Tha Kid)

It’s unclear if the version of “Tron Cat” that leaked last week is the final mix from Tyler’s forthcoming “>Goblin, and it is certain that this live version of “Analog” is not exactly how the song will sound on the Odd Future capo’s XL debut. Imperfect though they may be for the task, sketches and… More »

The Best Odd Future Interview

First of all give propers to Nardwuar The Human Serviette for wrangling the Odd Future crew into one place at one time during SXSW 2011. (Portraiture artist Ryan Muir can tell you how difficult this is.) And also give Narduwuar respect for choosing his location wisely: some sort of isolated rooftop, making their wandering off… More »

Come March every year, the same questions are asked, retreaded thought pieces get pitched: What does it mean to have a music industry festival in the decrepit climate of 2011?

Odd Future Make A Clip For Funny Or Die

So this month Tyler and his cabal crossed some sort of a divide from internet/forum phenoms to bona fide YouTube (and boobtube) stars, rapidly checking off apparent life goals of meeting Bieber and Diddy and being big upped from Kanye and filing tweets popping on @humblebrag’s radar. And so a satirical FunnyOrDie video starring Paul… More »

Lykke Li – “I Follow Rivers (Tyler, The Creator Remix)”

When we talked about Dave Sitek’s remix of “I Follow Rivers,” I said it paled in comparison to the original which had a sparer arrangement and a “swaggering pulse.” A pulse that got considerably more swag via this redo by Odd Future wide-eyed visionary Tyler, The Creator.
