everyone could use some more BABYLON in their lives
to tell you the truth though, ol Shitty is doing a show on the 25th, about 30 minutes away from my house... apparently it's the only time he'll be doing a US tour and i'm super bummed because i can't go. ah well. here are some more of my favorite songs from him:
(that last one has a hilarious rage against the machine sample starting at around 2:45 that pretty much makes the entire song)
I've loved the Avalanches album Since I Left You for a while now and always knew of its issue with having certain samples removed due to clearance issues, but I didn't know until now that it was originally meant to include another track that had to be taken out entirely. And after listening to it.... fuck this sample clearance bullshit. This is goddamn amazing, I can't stop listening to it. If this was included on the finished album it would have been one of the best tracks on there.
Speaking of the sample removals - I had only listened to the original Australian version with all the samples intact, but when I went to buy my physical copy of the album, I didn't have enough money for that version. So I bought the more common one, as it was much cheaper, even though I was disappointed it had a bunch of samples taken out. Or at least, so I thought. When trying to compare versions today, I realized that the seller goofed up and accidentally sent me the original version instead for $40 less than it would have cost! Rad as hell
