MellowHype & Bass Drum of Death - "64" [FuelTV]

Similar to their [larger] crew's nationally-aired debut TV appearance (The Roots/Fallon) a couple months back, MellowHype was once again backed by a band. For this go-round, the 2/12 Odd Future recruited Garage Pop duo Bass Drum of Death for this recent FuelTV performance. - I look forward to seeing if the OF members progress with this "Rock-inspired" sound on their future releases, as really seems to be a solid fit.
Bass Drum of Death writes songs about... "drugs, trying to make it with religious girls, panic attacks, stealing stuff, mild to severe depression, Elvis appearing in your dreams and giving you advice, gravity bongs, and the devil living inside your brain."

- Fat Possum on GB City (LP).

MellowHype contains Hodgy Beats and Left Brain, while Bass Drum of Death is made up of Mississippi natives, "John + Colin." Both pairs are currently signed with Fat Possum Records feed public relations through Heathcliff Berru (Life or Death PR).
The Oxford, MS-based label recently released Bass Drums' debut full-length, GB City. A "pumped up" BlackenedWhite (mixtape) version is slated for [commercial] re-release this Summer... with a new album, "Numbers" TBR later on down the line in 2011. A second new album will reportedly be written/recorded and hopefully released this year, as well.

  1. Vampires is not at all like in the movies or books. Sure, I understand. You are young you have the whole world open to you. You can be anything that you choose if you apply yourself and try hard to work toward that goal. But being a Vampire is not what it seems like. It’s a life full of good, and amazing things. We are as human as you are.. It’s not what you are that counts, But how you choose to be. Do you want a life full of interesting things? Do you want to have power and influence over others? To be charming and desirable? To have wealth, health, and longevity? contact the Vampires Lord on his Email: Richvampirekindom@gmail.com
