Wondering if this film is going to have an actual dvd release. This could be considered another big highlight of the LA MOCA Show.

Matt Mondanile (ducktails) Starts His Own Label

"Word just came in that Mondanile has started his own record label, New Images, which is 100% independent, and will be kicking off with a 12" from the Finnish musician in late June. "Donovan," below, is a colorful smorgasbord of polyrhymic drum patter, tinny string samples, and flyaway ear candy. You might think that its only unifying logic principle is its own hyperactivity, until it tunnelvisions into a woodsy groove. --Emilie Friedlander," Altered Zones

Artpost - Kidult

Kidult x MR Brainwash from eric on Vimeo.

Kidult x MOCA from eric on Vimeo.

Kidult is making a name for himself by crossing people out. Normally, no one would care, however, his choice of targets is changing that. Banksy aided the world in exposing Mr. Brainwash as a complete idiot and copycat, So my hat goes off to you Kidult for doing what we all wanted to do. I dont think you can make a career out of x'en peeps out, but it works for now. And the LA MOCA show, amazing as it is (artists wise), is a deserving target as well because Jeffrey Deitch is missing the point and not to mention cashing in on "Street Art."

Black Lips

Black Lips - New Direction

I have mixed emotions about Mark Ronson's contribution to their new album, as long as the rest of the album doesn't sound like poop then I guess we are okay.

Cankun - Jaguar Dance (Not Not Fun 2011)

Preview Buy

"French haze aesthete Vincent Caylet has been active on the marginal music frontlines in various capacities for several years at this point but Jaguar Dance is his debut outing under the Cankun parasol, and it’s a even brighter-lit hideaway of mirages to pass out in. Choppy, chiming guitars balance-beam above looping heatwaved keyboards while skittery beats glitter like a glare on the skin of the sea. A few songs fixate on a more entrancing/sun-stupor tonal agenda (“Coral Sands,” “O Mountains O”) but the majority of the album’s nine multi-movement instrumentals revel in freshly flowing metronomic locomotions, from propulsive island-kraut (“Congo Mobile Disco”) to cool club bootlegs (“Lichens Beat,” “Kids House”) to sweaty wah-funk (“Striking Bicycles”) and beyond. Escapist, joyous, and psychedelically sunburned in equal measure,Jaguar Dance is a totally promising first statement and we’re already pumped for the sequel. Pro-dubbed tapes in cases with surreal smoking lips j-card art by Valerian Marguery. Edition of 175." - Not Not Fun

Art Post - The Old Boy's Club

Artist Website

"We Mentioned our admiration for The Old Boys' Club on the site a few months back, and now the "collective" has a show up in San Francisco at Haines Gallery, La Destitution de la Jeune Fille (The Deposition of the Young Girl). There is so much in this exhibition: drawings, paintings, sculptures, installations, video, mixed-media, and multimedia, and The Old Boys Club does it all well.

The Club, who consists of Katya Bonnenfant and others, says in their statement, The Old Boys’ Club writes: “Premiers Matériaux... is a controversial essay, insolent and impressive…yet the book doesn’t provide any possible solutions in order to change society.
La Destitution de la Jeune Fille tries to humbly define some humorous territory where the Young Lady can be dethroned.” - Juxtapoz

Thee Oh Sees

"Along with word about their newest album, Castlemania (June 14, In the Red), Bay area rockers Thee Oh Sees dropped some recent news about the future of the band: an additional member, multi-instrumentalist/singer Lars Finberg of the Intelligence (whowas playing with Wounded Lion at SXSW), will be making the group a five-piece in the near future. In addition to that, there's another full-length set for the fall.

Castlemania (cover art below) taps into the band's freaky, folkier side, as you can hear above with its opener "I Need Seed," so here's hoping the fall record picks up where 2009's Help and 2010's Warm Slime left off: jittery, high-wattage songs built for live, late-night consumption." - Brooklyn Vegan
