Bartees Strange Returns with Live Forever Deluxe Edition Featuring "Free Kelly Rowland" Remix with Armand Hammer (Memory Music)

Let's just say this: if you're still not listening to Barttes Strange, you're missing out! Strange is a producer and song-writer based out of Washington, D.C. His mother is an Opera singer and His dad served in the military for decades. Strange traveled widely for his parents' jobs—born in Ipswich, England in 1989, his family did stints living in Germany, Greenland, and a number of states across America before he hit his 12th birthday when they settled down in Mustang, Oklahoma. Bartees Strangr released his debut full-length, Live Forver, last year on producer, engineer and song-writer Will Yip's impring, Memory Music, formed in partnership with Run for Cover Records. It was one of the most critically-acclaimed/widely-loved albums of the year garnering widespread praise from the likes of Thursday's own Geoff Rickly, Phoebe Bridgers, Lucy Dacus, The National, Stay Inside, Maneka, and Oceanator.

Strange has since recorded and released remixes for the likes of Bridgers, illuminati hotties, Hannah Georgas, glass beach, Samia, Lorenzo Wolff, Homeschool, and Ganser. Additionally, Bartees Strange has worked on collaorative efforts with Dave Hause, Hit Like A Girl, Broke Royals, Ohmme & Eric Slick (Dr. Dog,) Project Diem, and Spring Silver in recent years, as well. Currently on a US tour with Phoebe Bridgers, Ganser, and a string of solo dates, Strange is still touring behind and actively promoting Live Forever a year after its initial release. Last night, STRANGE (@Bartees_Strange) Tweeted: "Tomorrow the deluxe version of Live Forever drops. there's also vinyl on @Bandcamp again. this is the last time I'll say it, but there is a new version of ["Kelly Rowland"] that'll drop tomorrow and it's dumb good."

And this morning, we received just that, a 13-track Deluxe Edition of Live Forever. Stand-outs "Boomer," "Mustang," and "Stone Meadows" are still there, but this go-'round, we've been treated to two Bonus Tracks and the aforementioned remix. Post-"Ghostly," Live Forever (Deluxe Edition) boasts recent single, "Weights," as well as a brand new, seemingly, updated version of "Flagey God," new re-titled "Flagey God Redux. However, what really stands out here is that remixed version of "Kelly Rowland" Bartees Strange has been teasing, fittingly titled "Free Kelly Rowland" featuring noneother than beloved Indie Hip-Hop rapper/producer duo Armand Hammer AKA E L U C I D & billy woods. It's without a doubt worth the price of the whole album itself. Bartees Strange's Live Forever is now available in digital, vinyl, CD, and cassette formats in both Deluxe & Standard Editions on Memory Music.

Shadows of Tomorrow: BIG GHOST LIMITED Shares His Illustrious Thoughts On DOOM's Life, Death & Career (MF DOOM Tribute)

CREDIT: KARISSA KANESHIRO (@karissakaneshiro) Honestly, it doesn't even feel like there's a proper way to elegize an eccentric and extremely talented artist such as MF DOOM, who meant so much to so many of us for so many years for so many different reasons as truly unique as DOOM himself. So, what better way to pay tribute to The Man, The Myth, THE MASK himself than by speaking to those closest to him? With a heavy heart, I proudly present Shadows of Tomorrow; a new recurring column in tribute to DOOM in an effort to re-tell the tall tales, strange stories, and lesser-known tidbits of The Metal Face Villain himself. R.I.P. Daniel "MF DOOM" Dumile Thompson. "The difference between talent and genius. The significance of some artists' bodies of work cannot be measured or quantified by man-made instruments or hypotheses... it's like accurately guessing how many people on the planet see the same star in the night sky at the same time.

Champion of The Underdog: An Appreciation of The Life & Work of Biz Markie, Vol. 11 By: NO ECHO Co-founder Carlos Ramirez

Marcel Theo Hall, better know as Biz Markie and oftentimes, affectionately referred to as The Biz, The Clown Prince of Hip-Hop, The Inhuman Orchestra, The Diabolical Biz Markie, and The Emizah-Emizah, was highly revered as one of the most genuine emcees to ever do it. Biz passed away on Friday, July 16, 2021 at the tender age of 57, likely due to complications from Type 2 Diabetes, although, no official Cause of Death has been revealed just yet. Biz Markie is most well-known for his infectious 1989 break-out single, "Just A Friend," but he was a truly multi-talented artist, as well. Biz Mark's lesser-known talents included beat-boxing, dancing, producing, DJ'ing, acting, singing, and song-writing. It was proven time and time again that "Nobody Beats The Biz," but he surely didn't mind collaborating with just about anyone; racking up genre-defying features with everyone from the Beastie Boys to Spin Doctors.

Jeff Rosenstock Shares "Skarranged" Version of 2020's NO DREAM Fittingly Re-titled SKA DREAM (Polyvinyl/Quote Unquote Records)

"You can PRE-ORDER some sweet limited (and unlimited) vinyl from us here . (There's about 200 left of the above variant!) You can LISTEN to SKA DREAM on all the things here . That includes Quote Unquote Records, where you can download the whole thing for free and if you choose to make a donation there, all the money goes to The First Nations Development Institute. HOPE YA LIKE THE RECORD! HERE'S A LITTLE THING I WROTE ABOUT IT: SKA DREAM is a complete re-recording of Jeff Rosenstock's critically-acclaimed 2020 record, NO DREAM; however, this time around, all the songs are Ska songs—you're welcome. The very good idea to make this record came together when, like many other bands throughout this pandemic that refused to participate in super-spreading events, we were trying to find a fun way to make some music together to share with people. Otherwise, we were just spending our evenings texting the Group Chat in dread about the collapsing world around us. Not the
