French Horn Rebellion – Beaches and Friends (The Twelves Radio Edit)

We haven’t done a contest in awhile, and it’s a time of giving, so we figured it would be a good time for us to appreciate our readers. If you’ve been following us at all, you know how much we love good music, going to shows, and meeting like-minded people. This contest is going to satisfy all of that! Kinda sucks that this is probably going to be limited to our OC/LA/SD readers, because we wish we could fly you in from wherever. In a perfect world, we totally would…Onto the goods after the jump.

YOLO List: Week 75

by Skinny Genes Categories: skinny genes, YOLO list |  


Merry Christmas to all of y’all who celebrate it! I love those days where people just by default let go of all worries and just appreciate being alive and with their friends and family, this being one of those days. I wish it would happen more often, but it makes it that much more special when it does. But yes! On to the music! Saw Treasure Fingers and interviewed Kids at the Bar Friday AND bought a ticket to UMF off impulse…but I can explain. Our year end lists are coming soon too, so check back to see what’s good. Excited for the future! Enjoy #75:

STRFKR – Happy Fucking Holidays

by Skinny Genes Categories: indie, skinny genes |  

Just realized this post comes off pretty explicit right off the bat considering the band name AND song both have the word “fuck” in it, but…fuck it! Relevant track coming your way! Starfucker / STRFKR is one of my top 5 favorite bands of all time, and they’re serious contenders of best album of the year for Reptilians. I’ve been following these guys on their facebook and twitter, and their sense of humor always gets me. The song seems so nice and soft when all they say is “Happy fucking holidaaays to youuu, and youuu”. I dunno. I love em. The track is off a compilation of Portland-based indie artists doing holiday songs. It’s called Another Grey Christmas and you can stream it by following the link. I was gonna wish you all happy holidays, but I’ll let the song take care of that. ;)

Check our interview with them!

STRFKR – Happy Fucking Holidays

NEW Jack Beats and Mord Fustang!

by Skinny Genes Categories: electronic, skinny genes |  

It was another one of those morning struggles getting out of bed, when suddenly I found the energy through an email for a new Jack Beats track! These guys have been teasing us with word of an album all year, and it doesn’t seem like it’s going to be out anytime soon. In the mean time, it looks as if they have a series of B-Sides for release that they’ve been playing in clubs during their HARD Summer tour. ‘Make the People,’ the first of the series, is everything you’d ever want from Jack Beats, except new and fresh! It’s a free download on their facebook, so please go ‘like’ it in support, but I included it below as well.

Jack Beats – Make the People

The last and certainly not least track of this post is a new one from the Estonian wonder kid Mord Fustang. This guy’s sound is like a cross between Deadmau5 and Wolfgang Gartner, which probably adds to why he isn’t as big as he should be. It’s a familiar sound that established artists are already working with, but it doesn’t take away from how astoundingly great this track is.

Mord Fustang – We Are Now Connected

He also opened with this track when we saw him in OC last week! It was a pretty awesome sold out show, and everyone was ready to get sweaty in the pit considering our loss of patience. The DJ before Mord went on about half an hour too long, and he was fun and all but we wanted some Mord. You’ll see him yelling at the beginning of the video. The track starts towards the fifty second mark.

YOLO List: Week 74

by Skinny Genes Categories: skinny genes, YOLO list |  


Happy Sunday! Good to be back. I feel like so much has happened since last week. Two huge leaps forward in the works for C+A+D as a whole. Feel like it could be really cool when we do it right! Stick with us. Oh and so many shows. Be there such a thing: Digitalism, Mord Fustang, Kendrick Lamar/Dom Kennedy/Casey Veggies, then Deadmau5/Murphy/Proxy for free? I’m just on cloud 9…I’ll have videos up and recaps later today or tomorrow. Need to recharge haha. Scope these pictures our photog Philip Mendoza got though!! I don’t know how he does it.

Digitalism @ Music Box LA 12/13
Mord Fustang/Tommy Noble @ Yost Theatre 12/14
