VIDEO: William Fitzsimmons’ “It’s Not True”

Sound is his toy box, coming from an environment were sound was essential, since his parents were both blind. Introduce yourself to William Fitzsimmons if you haven’t done so already. His album, Goodnight (Naim), is a look and listen into the world of sound captured by someone who doesn’t take the importance of sound for granted with his combination of folk and sample-based collages.

Doseone and Jel have returned as, appropriately, Themselves, and a new album is on its way in the form of CrownsDown. It will be released on my birthday, and here is the official track listing:

1. Back II Burn
2. Oversleeping
3. The Mark
4. Gangster Of Disbelief
5. Daxstrong
6. You Ain’t It
7. Roman Is As Roman Does
8. Skinning The Drum
9. Deadcatclear II
10. Gold Teeth Will Roll

What will make of the album? Fans of Doseone, Jel, and the Anticon movement will buy this blindly, but some of the things referenced in their press release include such things as “X-Clan”, “electro bounce”, “Nas”, “Kool Keith”, “Auto-Tune”, and “sweat-and-blood-made crowns”. What does this all mean? You’ll find out, but if you can’t wait around for it just yet, they did create a pre-release album that fans can download for free. You can find out about it here.

As a fan of Melvins for almost 25 years, I’ve been waiting for a project like this for a long time. It seems the band have opened up their vaults for various well known producers, remixers, and musicians to take various Melvins songs and remix them at will. The project is complete, and it is called Chicken Switch, due out September 29th on Ipecac Records.
