Stones Throw head hancho PB Wolf put together a 50min mix of current and upcoming 2011 releases from ST veterans and new signees. Since I didn’t read the tracklist before listening (I never do– it sometimes spoils the surprise of it all) I was definitely caught off guard when I first listened to the mix. There’s a huge surprise right off the bat.
First episode of the new podcast series CDRadio, recorded 2010.12.08. Episode 01 turned out really chill; alot of mellow electronica & laidback hip-hop. Also a little shorter than I expected. I have no clue what each episode will sound like, but they’ll each be compilations of new music I’m currently digging and older stuff that isn’t heard very often or stuff not many people may know about. Enjoy!
Danimals (expect a possible name change in the near future) started out as a solo project by Sydney artist Jonti Danilewitz, but has now grown into a full five-piece electronic pop band.
Their debut LP Twirligig, consisting of Danilewitz’s unreleased previous solo material, was expected to be released on Speak N Spell sometime this year, however the band no longer appears to be on the label’s roster. It has not been officially announced yet, but the Australian band has seemingly been signed to Peanut Butter Wolf’s Stones Throw Records. Danimals is definitely a band to look out for.
2010.12.16: Danimals have changed their name to Djanimals.
