Live This Month: August 2012 — an audio guide through SF concerts this month (Podcast #284)
Live This Month: August 2012 — an audio guide through SF concerts this month (Podcast #284) In Live This Month, we sample some of the great local and out-of-town bands performing in the coming month in the San Francisco Bay Area. August means the return of the Outside Lands Festival, the latest installment of which deftly balances the expected big name headliners with a healthy serving of compelling indie artists. There are certainly plenty of good options to keep attendees satisfied all weekend long, but if you're considering a single day ticket, we'd recommend skipping work on Friday, as opening [...]
Video: Doseone – "Thy Pattern"
Doseone - "Last Life" Oakland-based hyperspeed oddball rapper Doseone (of Subtle, Themselves, and 13 & God) has released a new video off his latest solo LP, out now on Anticon, G Is For Deep. "Thy Pattern" is of a slightly different flavor than we're used to from Doseone as he trades his usual skittering rhymes for experimental pop stylings (at least for the first half of the song). The video mixes claymation, animation, and some live action. It's a strange mix.
Doseone – "End & Egg"
Doseone - "End & Egg" Via Pitchfork, here's another new one from G is for Deep, the upcoming album by Anticon's Doseone. The album arrives on May 29.

Doseone – "Last Life"
Doseone - "Last Life" One of Anticon's multi-operational co-founders, Doseone, finds time in between 13 & Gold, Themselves, Subtle, and other projects to release a solo album next month. G Is For Deep comes out May 29 on Anticon, of course, and the first glimpse of it premiered last week on Stereogum in "Last Life." The track shows a deviation from the usual breathy, high-pitched rapping to a soft-spoken, poppier feel akin to The Notwist. Album art and tracklisting are after the jump. TRACKLIST: 01 “Dancing X” 02 “Last Life” 03 “I Fell” 04 “Thy Pattern” 05 “Therapist This” 06 [...]
