You know you want it!

If you haven’t subscribed yet in iTunes to the Low End Theory podcast, now would be a good time to click that button, because this month’s installment features a new music mix from the Glitch Mob as well as from D-Styles, one of the residents at the “BEST UNPREDICTABLE MUSIC NIGHT” in the city as per the LA Weekly. It is free to download and subscribe.

In the mix is that “Breathe a Little” track that I just happened to have stuck in my head ALL DAY yesterday, so much that I almost posted on Facebook: What is this track? Who has it? Where can I listen to it? But it looks like the gods of the internets have answered my personal pleas for breathe.

OH AND it contains that “Mike, Aaron & Eddie” track that some of you have been harassing me about for a while. You know who you are.

Past podcasts include Gaslamp Killer, Mary Anne Hobbs, Nobody, Mono/Poly, Daddy Kev, Nosaj Thing, Ras G, Mike Slott, & SamIYam. Yeah.

Stay tuned for a new album from the Glitch Mob, coming early next year!

I want you guys all to know about Alpha Pup Records, one of the most avant-garde, creative and future-oriented record labels in the world, and my very favorite.

ALPHA PUPAlpha Pup Records & Digital Distribution is a boutique digital music distributor located in downtown Los Angeles that represents over 40 of the world’s top independent labels. Bold and forward-thinking, Alpha Pup is an outlet for daring and experimental sounds from some of the world’s most creative musical minds, spanning all popular genres. From the classic funk and soul catalog of Westbound Records (Funkadelic, Ohio Players, P-Funk All Stars) to the screaming punk rock of Gold Standard Laboratories (The Mars Volta, !!!, The Locust) as well as the Alpha Pup label artist roster (Glitch Mob, Daedelus, Nosaj Thing, Free The Robots, DJ Nobody, Carlos Niño, Nocando, AWOL One & Daddy Kev) and Brainfeeder (Flying Lotus, SAMIYAM, Ras G), the Alpha Pup catalog includes some of the most vital and important albums in independent music history.

Recently released on Alpha Pup is the debut album for Gaslamp Killer called My Troubled Mind, and up next are albums by the Glitch Mob, Free the Robots, Daedelus and Nocando. Wow.

Alpha Pup is also behind the world-renowned club night Low End Theory in LA which also issues a monthly podcast; this month’s version is from Mary Anne Hobbs and Gaslamp Killer and you can find it here. With many big-name artists active in the West Coast community and around the world, expect to see talent from the Alpha Pup roster in sweaty clubs, massive shows, and outdoor art festivals all season long.
