The recently reunited Death from Above 1979 have posted rehearsal footage of "Little Girl" from their LP You're a Woman I'm a Machine. While that's fascinating enough, what's more fascinating is the way that video ends... an all black screen that reads "3/19/2011 1:00AM", a date and time that happens to fall right during SXSW. One question is whether they really mean 3/19 at 1am (Friday night) or actually mean 3/20 at 1am (Saturday night)? They probably mean Saturday night, especially since I doubt they're advertising the MSTRKRFT SXSW show that happens Friday night at the same time. Is DFA1979 cooking up a comeback show for Austin? No concrete answers.
Assuming it is Saturday night at SXSW, and that it is a show, then it's unfortunately at the same time that their old label Vice is having their annual late night party which this year will feature an awesome lineup of Odd Future, OFF!, and Thee Oh Sees. That is, unless it's happening at the Vice party, though nobody I asked at Vice seemed to know anything about it. Vice's party starts at 12 midnight and RSVP is currently open.
Vice's Official showcase goes down two days earlier (3/17) at Club Deville with Davila 666, OFF!, Black Lips, and a special guest headliner who I'm willing to bet is the Raveonettes (who will be in Texas and are signed to Vice). Vice is also involved in the noisey.com show featuring exclusive performances from Bun B and Ariel Pink that goes down in Austin one night later.

Some notes: Mellowhype (aka Hodgy Beats and Left Brain of Billboard cover stars Odd Future - and whatever other Odd Future members decide to come along) are only playing one other show - their label's showcase at Club DeVille. Listen to David Fricke and get to Swan Dive in time to see Josh T Pearson. Shannon & the Clams and Hunx & His Punx share members, and have even been known to show their members. There are lots of bands with "and" in their name playing the Barbarella Inside Stage. Brody Stevens is funny! Anika will be spinning vinyl between sets during the second half of the day. I am super excited to be hosting Screaming Females for a second time.
This party will also have:
- FREE vegan Izzoz breakfast tacos while supplies last!

Left Brain at Santos (more by Brook Bobbins)
As mentioned yesterday, "MellowHype (Hodgy Beats & Left Brain) just announced that they will be re-releasing their most recent record, 'BlackenedWhite,' with two bonus tracks. No details on a label or signing yet, but I'm sure it won't be long before we hear more." As announced today:
MellowHype (OFWGKTA) sign to Fat Possum for a hard release of BlackenedWhite. It was originally featured on Odd Future's website back on Halloween and has since been remixed and remastered with bonus content for a physical release on CD and Vinyl this summer.Meanwhile, download Blackenedwhite for free.
In related news, Toro Y Moi recently dropped a remix for Tyler The Creator's "French" from the Bastard LP (download it above/stream it below) and Funny or Die posted a video of the crew getting signed that features Paul Scheer and many others. Check out the video alongside the song stream below.

The skateboarding, hip-hop collective Odd Future Wolf Gang Kill Them All (OFWGKTA, Odd Future, OF, Golf Wang) are blowing up. Their lyrics are in your face and offensive, and they have a style that sounds like, to quote Earl, the "reincarnation of '98 Eminem" (FREE EARL!) - more so than the often referenced Gravediggaz HorrorCore anyway. The beats are all made in house by the Odd Future crew and are usually heavy on the synthesizers and bass lines. The signature OF sound is best on display in Tyler, the Creator's new song, 'Yonkers.' The self-directed video for the song has reached over 1.8 million views on YouTube since its February 11th debut. Kanye West tweeted it as "The video of 2011."
They just wrapped up a short sold out East Coast tour, performed with the Roots on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon (which included a swagged out co-sign by Mos Def), had a lunch meeting with Jay-Z and finally got to hang out with Justin Bieber. Tyler, the Creator recently signed to XL and will release his second album, 'GOBLIN,' in April. MellowHype (Hodgy Beats & Left Brain) also just announced that they will be re-releasing their most recent record, 'BlackenedWhite,' with two bonus tracks. No details on a label or signing yet, but I'm sure it won't be long before we hear more. UPDATE: the album is coming via Fat Possum.
I was lucky enough to tag along with Odd Future on a Chinatown bus to Philadelphia, the day after their Fallon performance (which was the day after their Santos Party House show). Our destination was their sold out show that night at the Barbary which ended up being completely insane. Before the show they skated around the City of Brotherly Love, ran up the ROCKY steps and ate cheese steaks. The bus ride and all the craziness in Philly was documented by MTV (with a bit of my help). Check out the video entitled "The Wonderful Adventures of Odd Future Wolf Gang Kill Them All", below. Swag!

Before Tyler, The Creator lost his shoe and played Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, Odd Future headlined at Santos on 2/15 to a sold out crowd of bouncy fans. The packed house saw the LA crew take their Gravediggaz/early Def Jux/Fondle 'Em sound to the stage, the show floor, on top of monitors, and behind wigs as they kicked out joints like "Yonkers" and "Sandwitches".
Check out the full set of pictures (below) from Santos of the band on-stage and off
right next to a set of the crew backstage at Jimmy Fallon (?uestlove and Mos Def alert).
In addition, below you'll find some videos
including an incredible one of Odd Future watching their Fallon performance played back to them for the first time
UPDATE: Powers from above have asked us to remove any pictures and videos taken inside Fallon's place. Sorry!. The rest is still below though...
"Some One Took My Fycking Shoe. Fuck" - Tyler, The Creator
"New York Would've Been My Favorite Fucking Show But I'm Shoeless.
Fuck Man." - Tyler, The Creator
"These Niggas Were Cool. Swag. Got My Fucking Shoe Back.
Fallon Was The Shit" - Tyler, The Creator
Tyler & shoe (sponsored by Supreme?)
Crisis averted. Tyler, The Creator got his shoe back yesterday and his crew Odd Future (aka Hodgy Beats & Tyler, The Creator) were backed by The Roots on Jimmy Fallon last night (2/16). Odd Future performed their burner "Sandwitches" with the help of inverted crosses, ski masks and that creepy litle girl from The Ring, and video from the show is below.
The band is currently (literally) on the way to Philadelphia to play a sold out show at The Barbary tonight (2/17). We have pictures from the Santos Party House show coming, but for now they're on the same Philly-bound Chinatown bus Odd Future is on (literally). Some videos from the NYC gig are below though...

I'm not gay, I just wanna boogie to some MarvinTyler The Creator's second album GOBLIN will be released in April through XL Recordings. Two tracks, "Yonkers" and "Sandwitches" are on iTunes now. Tyler also has a new video for "Yonkers" that was directed by Wolf Haley (aka himself). You can watch it below (some of the lyrics are above - you can sing along).
(What you think of Hayley Williams?) Fuck her, Wolf Haley robbin' 'em
I'll crash that fuckin' airplane that faggot nigga B.o.B is in
And stab Bruno Mars in his goddamn esophagus
And won't stop until the cops come in...
...They say success is the best revenge
So I beat DeShay up with the stack of magazines I'm in
Oh, not again, another critic writin' report
I'm stabbin' any bloggin' faggot hipster with a Pitchfork
[Tyler the Creator's "Yonkers" lyrics]
Kid Cudi announced that this summer he will release a Dot Da Genius-produced rock album, entitled Wizard and for his rap fans, a mixtape titled, A Man Named Scott.No word on whether the "rock" Cudi or the hip hop one will be the focus of the forthcoming show at Roseland on April 20th. Tickets go on 92.3 and Live Nation presales on Wednesday at 10am, and then general sale Friday.
"Pushing for a summer release of the Wizard album. I produce and play guitar on everything with my main man Dot Da Genius. He's learning bass," The Cudder wrote. "Wizard is a rock album, no raps, just singing. Brand new thing. Flavor. 'Dose of Dopeness,' however, will be on the Wizard album as a bonus jam. 'Bout f---in' time aye. I've been wearing the same jeans for months and I feel good about that dedication."
"Oh I forgot the best news ever ... new mixtape A Man Named Scott," he continued. "That's this summer. For all those who f---s with my raps, this is for you since I'mma be all rocked out with the Wizard sh--. Also, it's free! Yes!"-[MTV News]

Tonight's Slaughterhouse show at Highline Ballroom is sold out but if you get there early you might be able to pick one up at the door.
Odd Future will play DC one day before their now-sold out Santos Party House show which is one day before they play Fallon with help from the Roots.

They play Philly one day after that, and they're also on the bill of Coachella. All dates are listed below.
Odd Future @ the Studio in 2010 (more by Brook Bobbins)

"Fuck every label and magazine here, suck my dick!" shouted 19-year-old rapper Tyler, The Creator during the New York coming out party for his potty-mouthed, insanely hyped, comically prolific Tumblr-rap crew Odd Future Wolf Gang Kill Them All.Fuck OFWGKTA! Thats what the shirts read (it stands for Odd Future Wolf Gang Kill Them All) last night (11/8) at The Studio at Webster Hall as Odd Future played to a sold-out room. The show was the lone date for the crew, who in their endless stream of releases recently dropped BLACKENEDWHITE, the new LP from MellowHype, a subset of Odd Future.
While the intimate show at Webster Hall Studio was mostly packed with horn-rimmed diehards, it was no secret that it was still doubling as a feeding frenzy for music critics, label execs, and industry hangers-on. Tyler is no one's bait, and lashed out in the middle of a brawny acapella of just-don't-give-a-fuck anthem "Seven," a song that already featured a few homophobic cracks, cocaine endorsement and a line where he refers to his 10-person crew as "black Nazis." [SPIN]
Pictures from the show, including some of the crew hanging out with Mos Def, are below.
DOWNLOAD: Wolf Haley & Hodgy Beats of Odd Future - Sandwitches (MP3)
Odd Future (also known as OFWGKTA - an acronym for Odd Future Wolf Gang Kill Them All) is a young skating LA hip hop crew, sometimes 10-members strong, featuring names like Tyler the Creator (the leader), Earl Sweatshirt, Domo Genesis, Hodgy Beats, Left Brain, Mike G, and Syd. These hooligans trot out futuristic and nihilistic rhymes over crude, blackened beats; think RA The Rugged Man, early Cage, Gravediggaz, and El-P all in one. Odd Future has released a ton of recent tracks at their Tumblr, including Tyler the Creator (aka Wolf Haley) & Hodgy Beats burner "Sandwitches", downloadable above (streamable below). The track is primitive hip hop in the best way; off-time beats recall early Madlib and Fondle 'Em-era MF Doom. Crude and dope.
Odd Future (sans Earl who is "on vacation") will make their NYC debut at The Studio at Webster Hall on November 8th, which will be a bit over a week after the Halloween release of MellowHype's spankin' new and 2nd LP BLACKENEDWHITE which is now available as a free download. MellowHype is Odd Future's Hodgy Beats and Left Brain. Expect them to play tracks from the new album, and possibly from their first which was called YelloWhite, at the NYC show. Their only other scheduled show at the moment is tonight, 11/5, in London
Some video of the band at work is below.
