Tune in to our new Trinumeral channel on DeliRadio

Posted By on Mon, Nov 19, 2012 at 1:19 PM

For those who are unfamiliar, Trinumeral is an annual (mostly) electronic music and arts fest that takes place on the date in which the day, month, and year come into alignment. Past Trinumeral shows have taken place throughout the Southeast in such cities as Miami, Asheville, Charlotte, and it hasn't been through Atlanta since the 7/7/7 show at the Masquerade with Entropy, Elevado, Social Espionage, Richard Devine, and more.

This year, Trinumeral returns to Atlanta to take over three stages at the King Plow Arts Center and Terminal West on Wednesday, December 12 (12/12/12). The lineup boasts performances by Flying Lotus, Elliot Lipp, Nadastrom, Ployd, Kebbi Williams, Cloudeater, Break Science, Teebs, Isness, and several others. To celebrate, we've added a Trinumeral channel to our DeliRadio player (in the upper right hand corner of this page), and fortified with as much music from the festival's lineup as we could muster. More artists will be added over the coming weeks. Tune in and freak out.

$45. 6 p.m. Wed., Dec. 12. Terminal West / King Plow.

>> In Oh Na Na news, Rihanna Plane #777 is now making its final descent into paranoia and donuts. Unless there are even more unforeseen delays. Or other problems.

>> PSY threw Hammer a bone at the American Music Awards (not a real thing) last night. In a somehow related thing, according to Taylor Swift, you can't put a 10 min song on an album. P.S. I love you, Christina Aguilera.

>> Lovely perfect songbird Fiona Apple wrote a sour patch song called "Dull Tool" and gave it to the makers of the officially unofficial sequel to Knocked Up, This Is 40, to include in their movie and soundtrack.

>> Foot-stompin' greasies Mumford & Sons bummed a ride all the way to Austin City Limits.

>> The new James Franco-directed, Lindsay Lohan-(guest)-starring music video for R.E.M. Collapse Into Now tune "Blue" is exactly what you think it will be and yep moving on.

Invent Room Pop 19 went big on Friday night

A recording of Friday night's (November 16) Invent Room Pop 19 session made its way onto the Internet pretty quickly over the weekend. The list of scheduled performers included Jason Elliott of Spirits and the Melchizedek Children (guitar and vocals), Sarah Cozart (percussion, vocals and melodica), Lindsey Ellcessor (vocals and percussion), Justin Waters (vocals, electronics, and processing), Rex Hussmann (gyil, vocals, and accordion), and Curtis Stephens (electronics and vocals).

However, the last two tracks of the recording, "Post Set pt. 1" and "Post Set. pt. 2," capture pretty much exactly what their titles say: A nearly hour and a half-long improv set that broke out after everyone had performed. It's divided into two parts during which Dave Matysiak, Adam Bruneau, Madeline Polites, Gary Eddy, Matthew Hollis, Robby Kee, Cole Alexander (Black Lips), and Bradford Cox joined in to foster a strangely melodic set, filled with all sorts of unorthodox rhythmic cycles, noise, and loops.

Mighty High Coup and Caspa team up to release 'On It'

Posted By on Mon, Nov 19, 2012 at 2:03 AM

In case you missed it, Mr. SOS, Ricky Raw, and A-Bomb (aka Mighty High Coup) teamed up with Caspa for a marriage of the group's slow and low roll set to Caspa's smooth production. It's a bit of a break from Caspa's typical style, but it's a bad-ass pairing for everyone invloved.

"On It" will be released worldwide on December 10 via Dub Police.

Give thanks and see Cypress Hill for almost free

Posted By on Fri, Nov 16, 2012 at 5:27 PM

A lot of hip-hop heads agreed with Nas when he proclaimed that "Hip-Hop is dead." To support that notion, declining album sales were referenced as a vital reason. Its one thing to not buy an album being that there are other ways to get access to music (i.e. downloading), but what about concert tickets? Cypress Hill is a group who is believed to have a solid fan base all over the nation. That's why it's baffling that tickets for their show at the Tabernacle this Saturday with New York up start Action Bronson have dropped from $27.50 to only .75 cents!

From the Tabernacle's website:

"We're thankful for our fans so we want to send you to Cypress Hill this Saturday for (almost*) free! Use this link to grab your tickets ... "

Trinidad James on his debut mixtape 'Don't Be S.A.F.E.,' and his first-ever A3C performance

Posted By on Fri, Nov 16, 2012 at 3:05 PM

Trinidad James
  • Good Fella Media
"Yeah, I dropped a tape. I surprised myself, man," Trinidad James says in his debut mixtape, before he cranks up his flow to five times the speed of his sparse, leaking-faucet beats. After a short stint of talent show performances with his cousins, James released Don't Be S.A.F.E. (as in, "Sensitive as Fuck Everyday") this summer. The Southside rapper, 25, wasn't expecting to receive much attention, much less radio airplay or his debut A3C performance last month.

On Thursday, on my way to meet James, Streetz 94.5 spun his breakout single immediately before B.o.B.'s "Still in This Bitch" and 2 Chainz's "I'm Different." The slowly swinging "All Gold Everything" was a natural fit for its rotation, although the rest of Don't Be S.A.F.E. is far from formulaic. His countrified flow warps and slumps its way through the groggy "One More Molly," only to perk up and relay a joke his mom told him at IHOP in "Sneaky vs. Selfish."

James spoke with CL about the making of Don't Be Safe, the delay leading up to his first-ever A3C performance and how he feels while navigating the rest of Atlanta's rap scene.
