Fayetteville expat/director Mike Anderson aims to direct a short film for Javelin



Mike Anderson, a Fayetteville director who relocated to Brooklyn last year, has started a Kickstarter campaign with Javelin to raise money for a Western-themed companion short film to the band's new 10-inch, Canyon Candy, out on Luaka Bop. From the looks of the promo (which starts at 1:40), we can expect more of Mike's trademark colorful greenscreen antics, only this time in fully fleshed-out short film form. This is exciting because Mike only has super short promo bits available for viewing over on his Vimeo page, so it will be nice to see something lengthier.

Javelin has $7,456 in pledges out of their goal of $9,500. And with 24 days left, it looks like they'll make it. Pledge here, and read more over at Altered Zones.

Crizzly in Little Rock tonight at Sub Kulture



Just a quick heads up that San Antonio dubstep champ Crizzly is headlining tonight's Sub Kulture at Downtown Music Hall in Little Rock. Here's his take on L.A. Style's '92 techno classic "James Brown Is Dead":

L.A. Style [ft. Big L] - "James Brown Is Dead (Crizzly Remix)"


I'll be opening alongside Wolf-E-Wolf. Stoked!

New Exit Comp: Mosaic, Vol. 1



Never saw myself doing a drum and bass post, but this new Exit Records comp is on the extreme outer fringes of the genre. (So it's barely a drum and bass post.) In the writeup for Mosaic, Vol. 1, Exit casually calls the comp "drum and bass" a few times over. This has me puzzled. To my highly American and drum-and-bass-shy ears, only five of Mosaic's 20 tracks sound even remotely like the genre. It's much more in the spirit of early '90s Warp ELM/IDM than any drum and bass I'm used to. Plus names like Scuba, Distance and Instra:mental pop up a lot more in the dubstep circuit (at least on my radar).

But I guess none of that is really important. Whatever you want to call it, it's a solid listen through and through. Exit has uploaded two-minute samples of each track from the comp. Stream here:

Eliot Lipp in Fayetteville Tonight

Eliot Lipp

Just a quick heads up that Eliot Lipp, a longtime key player in L.A.'s beat scene, will be at George's tonight. I'm not exactly sure how so many Fayetteville kids are up on Mr. Lipp, but I'm guessing the local festival circuit has played a big role. If you can brave the weather, try to come out and encourage local promoters to book more acts like this. We're in dire need of it.

Lipp recently dropped an album with Leo 123 under the name Dark Party but hasn't recorded much solo work lately. Here's a cut from his '09 LP, Peace Love Weed 3D:

Giorgio Moroder vs. Martin Brodin - "The Chase 2011"

I'll be a fan of both Giorgio Moroder and Art Bell-era Coast to Coast AM until my last breath, so this is an obligatory geek-out post. Moroder's "The Chase" is (and to my knowledge always has been) used as the Coast to Coast theme, and Martin Brodin has just given the track a modern update on his own label MB Disco. All my Italo disco and ham radio heads stand up:

earFear - "Facebook  Fraud"



Veteran Arkansas rapper and recurring AiMT favorite 607 has just dropped an album with his brother Bobby for the New Year. The duo goes by earFear these days. They put out a pair of albums back in the summer, and this new album, G33KS G0N3 W​!​LD, marks 607's—drum roll—35th album, complete with a Devin the Dude feature. Stream the whole thing over on the sidebar or over at earFear's BandCamp page.

If you read AiMT with much regularity, you probably already have the skinny on Lord Six, so I'll spare you the long bio. But dude's been crushing it in Little Rock for just about as long as my adult brain can remember, and this track may be his catchiest, most noteworthy one to date. Honest viral potential here:
