For anyone that has listened to any contemporary electronic dance music since
the early 1980’s until now (whether good, bad or neutral), you can almost certainly thank
Frankie Knuckles for developing the original sound of house music that has influenced
thousands of DJ’s worldwide since Knuckles began spinning at the now-defunct
“Warehouse” in Chicago in 1977.
WOBC OUTREACH WORKGROUP IS CURRENTLY PLANNING
THE 5TH ANNUAL WOBC BLOCK PARTY
‘things we thought were cool’ by various members of the POP! workgroup 2014:
Pure X – Angel
Some nice, quiet music from/for some nice, quiet boys. Sometimes, I hear a voice in my head say “turn down for what”? Turn down for this. The airbrushed full moon night inside of a melting heart on the album’s cover ain’t no joke –– Angel is a sugar-sweet ride through a tunnel of love. The album is far from sappy, though; more tender, and tasty, and super-enjoyable-sexy-great.
Stephen Malkmus & The Jicks – Wig Out at Jagbags
I want to know what/where a Jagbag is. I would totes wig out at one. This album, decorated simply with Edwardian Script and a succulent strawberry, is simply good fun. For those fans of one of the dopest bands of all time, Pavement, yr in luck. Ya boi Steve and his Jicks sound just like the good ol’ days Pavement.
Cloud Nothings – Here and Nowhere Else
So what if there are less obvious post-hardcore-y jams on this album? You gonna doubt this one because Steve Albini didn’t produce it? Well…doubt it all you want – but give it a few headphone-deep listens and Dylan Baldi’s songwriting will make you wish you actually played guitar for longer than 3 months when you were 14. With more Nirvana and Wipers-esque vibes than ever, HANE (what an acronym!) rlly kicks sum ass.
things we thought were wack:
Drake Bell – Ready Set Go
Skaters – Manhattan
This urban-outfitters-core band go hard with their “we have our own zine and three of us wear baseball hats at all times-wave” but they’re signed to Warner Bros so their underground cred is officially null. the blog says “a site so filthy you will have to turn on safe search” but the only unsafe thing on here is their lame poser attitudes. Not everyone agrees with our assessment—”Dorianiscool19″ gave their album a four star review on iTunes: ”so awesome lol. The whole album is pretty chill honestly having cool catchy beats and the lyrics flow quite nice through the whole album.” Take a listen to this highly polarizing album yourself!
stay tuned for more pop pix!

Danny Brown + DJ Spanish Fly
Friday the 13th – 12/13/13
10 PM @ The ‘Sco
Dj Spanish Fly didn’t invent gangster rap, but when you go back to the early 80′s and double-check who was pumping 808′s MAD GRIMeY and whose flow was MAD SLoW, he’s at the top of the list. Most well-known for his association with Three 6 Mafia, Spanish Fly’s style has remained the same over time, unstifled by changing fads. His rhymes are creepy, smooth, stoned slow and sly. Spanish Fly still has a slot on Memphis’s Hot 107.1 , recently released a new mixtape and has started touring in various cities across the country.
Wanna win a pair of tickets to see DJ Spanish Fly open for Danny Brown? Olivia S.’s show “We are Floating in Space” will give away a pair at Thursday at 5 AM. Here is what Olivia says about Dj Spanish Fly:
“DJ Spanish Fly reminds me of one of the first friends I made in high school…we would always listen to music together; we both liked music from the south, though I was more into Southern rock/blues while he liked Southern hip hop. There were artists I knew like Lil Jon and Organized Noize, but I remember him also playing stuff I hadn’t heard before at the time like DJ Spanish Fly…for whatever especially loved the obscure track “Alright” off the A.B.C.D.E. album, and I couldn’t help but think back to that and smile when I heard about the show this Friday. I’ve since explored more by DJ Spanish fly and can appreciate the simplicity and directness of his music/have much respect for the influence that he had on a lot of the hip hop coming out of Memphis during the 80s-90s. ”
