Eliot Lipp has joined Pretty Lights Music Label, a long overdue move. Lipp has been killing the live electronic scene for years. Joining the label along side artists like Michal Menert and Gramatik brings the potential for some crazy collaborations in the future. Check out “The Sunset” recently released on Pretty Lights Music.
Also, here is a tight Big Gigantic remix Lipp did about a year ago. He mixed Big G in with his song “Yeah” featured on Peace, Love, Weed 3D.
About a month ago I posted a link to Gramatik’s new track Solidified featuring Dallas’s finest up and coming rapper Jay Fresh. Check out the official video that was recently released.
New Orleans is always home to the best new funk bands. I’ve been following Earphunk the past few years and they are hands down the best rising funk stars on the scene. Give their new EP Extended Play Volume 1 a listen. You can download the tracks off Soundcloud (below) or from their Facebook page. Now that summer has started this site will be up and running in full force, check back for more updates.
Last week Lettuce released “Bowler”, giving fans a preview of their upcoming album, “Fly !”, set for release on Royal Family Records (June 5th). The funk/jazz supergroup has been around for quite some time, featuring esteemed funk and jazz musicians from Soulive, Shady Horns (Soulive’s horn section), and Adam Deitch on drums. The group’s tour schedule is often limited because the members are extensively involved in other projects, so be sure to catch them live if you can. The only dates down on the books this month is a show tonight (May 2nd) at Tipitina’s in New Orleans.

“Feat’s story began in 1969 when songwriter, performer, multi-instrumentalist, and all around colorful character Lowell George, formerly of Frank Zappa’s Mothers of Invention, set out to form his own band — at Zappa’s suggestion. The brilliant and often idiosyncratic George connected with keyboard master Bill Payne, and, along with drummer Richie Hayward and Roy Estrada, founded Little Feat. They were soon signed to Warner Bros., where Little Feat, in various configurations, would remain for twelve of their sixteen albums.
This initial line-up recorded the band’s first two LPs–their rootsy, 1971 self-titled debut, featuring the classic cut ”Willin,“ and its follow-up, Sailin’ Shoes, which added ”Easy To Slip,“ ”Trouble,“ ”Tripe Face Boogie,“ ”Cold Cold Cold“ and the infectious title track to their repertoire. Upon Estrada’s departure in 1972, Paul Barrere, Sam Clayton and Kenny Gradney (all still in Feat today) signed on, and the rest, as they say, is history…and many more great albums.
Next up was Dixie Chicken (’73), a New Orleans-influenced gumbo of greatness that offered up the signature title track and ”Fat Man In The Bathtub,“ among other delights. The two LPs that followed, Feats Don’t Fail Me Now (’74) and The Last Record Album (’75) served up ”Rock & Roll Doctor,“ ”Oh, Atlanta,“ and ”All That You Dream,“ respectively, while 1977’s Time Loves a Hero offered up, in fine Feats fashion, another unforgettable title track. That same year delivered the aforementioned Waiting For Columbus, forever memorializing their legendary stage prowess.”
