Things have been looking good for Dungeon Family with Big Boi’s Sir Lucious Left Foot: The Son of Chico Dusty finally seeing the light of day and sounding pretty damn good by the way — shame on you Jive Records — but now there are rumors circulating that could keep the reunited Goodie Mob from dropping that long-awaited album.
That is, if the rumors hitting the web are true about Goodie Mob member Khujo being handed a two-year sentence for an unknown conviction.
Daytrotter is awesome. The Drive-By Truckers are awesome, too. The two combined? Fuhgeddaboudit. You can stream and/or download their session, wherein the Athens band rips through four tracks from their recent LP The Big To-Do, right over here.

It's no secret that, here at CL, we love Outkast. We also love Big Boi, and his bangin' new album, Sir Lucious Left Foot: The Son of Chico Dusty. And as Atlantans know, Big is a beast in concert. Last night, Big took 2010's Summer Jam Number One, "Shutterbugg", to the set of "The Tonight Show with
Conan O'Brien Jay Leno". As you can see, it was out-of-this-world jammin'.
Big seems by and large ebullient about Sir Lucious' long-delayed release. Sure hope everyone else gets on board, 'cause seriously, this album slays.
This creepin', creepy new jam, entitled "Poltergeist", is one of the best things Gucci Mane's done in a hot minute. And it doesn't hurt that legendary Black Star/Reflection Eternal MC Talib Kweli spits a particularly hot verse on it. That's right, the one hip-hop collab you never imagined happening in your wildest Nyquil-distorted dreams has happened. And it's freakin' awesome. Can you imagine if these two got together for a full-length? My brain itches just considering it.

Next month, Elephant 6 mainstay Julian Koster will take his Music Tapes project on the road to three cities - New York, Philadelphia, and Boston - to perform intimate witching hour concerts for people in their bedrooms. This is true, and somewhat creepy, but mostly pretty cool.
From the Merge press release:
Lucky hosts will be visited at the bedtime hour by the most lulling of Music Tapes songs, by the sounds of the glowing and enchanting "Ghost Orchestra," Singing Saws, Stories, and so forth...Sleep over gatherings are accepted and even encouraged, although the lullabies will be absolutely delighted to regale audiences of only one. Locations of the lullaby events will be closed, and will not be announced to the general public, though you are heartily encouraged to make use of whatever means you wish to make new friends and gather.
Weird. Quaint! If you live in the area of one of those three cities and want Julian Koster holding his singing saw over your face while you drift off into slumber land wearing your little night cap, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. That's right, you too can play host to a bunch of eccentric hipsters who want to play your ass to sleep. This is so fun! But be convincing in your missive, because "there will be very few slots available so the first and most warm invitations will have to be chosen."
