CULT NEWS: New CSMB artists x Upcoming releases x DJ Dragoste mix x The Pyramid Head label sampler
Look. It's Tom Cruise. He's down with cults.
Anyway, where to start? How about The Broken Leslies. Comprised by 4 cats rocking and rolling the blues away, its not far off that The Broken Leslies would become your new favorite band. Because, despite popular belief, we are not just a label of genre bending electronic music. In case you missed the memo, we're down with tunes that are DOPE, and it should come to no surprise to anyone that WE LOVE ROCK AND ROLL AROUND THESE PARTS.
So let The Broken Leslies' blistering rock and roll break that puny indie neck of yours all in good fun, because that's how rock should be - fun and dangerous. Watch out for their release here in CSMB soon!
Anyone remember Spazzkid?
If you were following the progression of CSMB since its early days (which you probably haven't), circa 2007 or something - back when this whole operation came with the name PKi! - our friend and label comrade Spazzkid used to be Cocolulu. He even played his first show in the first PKi! House Show (that was also Legarda's first show before they became the juggernauts of post-rock they are now), but then he moved to sunny California and left us with songs that made us hopeful for his return. tl;dr Spazzkid is an old friend of the cult.
Well, Mark aka Spazzkid isn't back home and won't be any time soon, but guess what: since we got to talking and teary eyed with nostalgia, we decided that he should be part of the cult again. Fuck distance dude, distance is for chumps who don't have the internet. So better watch out for his first official release here and get stoked on his exclusive track on the upcoming label sampler at the end of the month!
For now though listen to his latest track featuring Skymarine from Davao. We've been playing this for 2 days now and it just won't stop being so incredibly good.
Now onto Lucas Tools.
Lucas Tools is a dude from Tunisia, North Africa and he makes electro ambient jamz that lasts for days, music that you just don't want to end. He is also a pretty cool dude and chill to talk to, if you're into that sort of thing. Anyway, there are plans of releasing his EP called Ketsuban - a first of three parts - here in the cult so you gots to be pumped up for that. It's going to be just MASSIVE we tells you.
But while you wait for that, listen and download his maxi EP Fresh Organic Product to whet your appetite. It's mad dope.
Dragoste is back! Well, we think he is. Dude got back to us a couple of days ago and said that he backed up his files and is going to finish mastering that mix of his so we could release it soon. Weird guy, but we love that bat shit crazy dude just the same. "Haters gonna hate I guess lol" was what he said to us when he messaged our Facebook. Hackers are bummers sometimes.
Listen to his Fiona Apple deep house remix and his remix of Mr. Biggs' Take That Shit to Trial for now, and don't worry, we'll tell you when to get back at us when that mix drops.
Now as for the label sampler we keep talking about...
Apocalypse comes early. CULT SHIT MEDIA BLACKOUT PRESENTS THE PYRAMID HEAD DROPS 11.30.12
With tracks from everyone in the Cult Shit roster. Better stay strapped til that one happens because you don't wanna get gunned down without hearing this shit. Real talk.
Also, don't forget that Z◊ɤɤ◊B▲Bͼ// is gonna release his EP on the 19th, that's Monday, SO MARK THOSE CALENDARS.
