Timmy's Organism unleash Eating Colors in September

The brutally boss new Timmy's Organism album Eating Colors will be released by Lo & Behold on September 1.
Since setting the scuzz-punk gutter a blaze with the first 1997 release of the EPILEPTIX, Detroit's Timmy Vulgar has continued to release mind-melting music over the last twenty years with his groups CLONE DEFECTS, HUMAN EYE, and his scuz-roq-power-trio TIMMY'S ORGANISM. Backed up by two mental ward escapees (Jeff Giant and Blake "Bovver" Hill) TIMMY'S ORGANISM have just finished their fourth studio album titled "Eating Colors." Check out the video for "Lick Up Your Town" and a live performance of "Monster Walk" below.

Cut Chemist went to Colombia and all we got was this wicked mix

Upon return from a recent trip to the deepest of crates in Colombia, Cut Chemist and company sought out to remix a unique set of dusty records, each different from the last, with an equally diverse list of producers. As the title suggests, Going Back to Cali: Cut Chemist’s Colombian Crates Remixed is more than cumbia, its a reflection on a tropical culture rich in spirit, creativity and passion strung together with field recordings found along the way. These records were bought in Cali, Colombia during Patronio Alvarez Festival last year, hence the name.

Our trip begins with folklore Colombiano favorites Los Corraleros de Majagual over a crunchy boom-bap by Co. Fee from Los Angeles’ beat collective, My Hollow Drum. Dance Kill Move (Stockholm, Sweden) adds some serious low end to Los Jovenes de Hierro’s classic charanga, “Ritmo Sabroso.” Ubiquity recording artist, currently residing in Colobmia, Bosq and Yukicito of La Junta (Los Angeles) contribute absolute party starters, while El Dusty’s “Mi Chola” give Los Teen Agers a taste Corpus Christi, TX. Atropolis (Queens) pays homage with a heavy stripped down edit of Julio y su Combo’s “Lamento Cumbiambero” and Los Chicos Altos (Barcelona) add in some rub-a-dub flavor on Los Hermanos Tuiran’s “Lluvia.” In addition we explore national treasures and the lesser known, new styles of chirimía, porro, pachanga, salsa and cumbia as interpreted by Sumohair (Los Angeles), Gabe Real (Pomona CA) and Greece duo SUPERSAN (aka Panama Cardoon & Mister Kentro).
