Video: Oxfist – Nickelodeon

No, young friends, our man Oxfist is not paying tribute to the TV network, but rather the old player pianos that once dominated the parlors and bars of the world in the ’20s and ’30s. Or as he put it, the title was chosen “after the realization that melody line sounds like a player piano choking on a chunk of piano roll.” Well put.

The short swinging track comes fromĀ Eye of the Witholder, a recently compiled set of tunes that Oxfist put together during the heady days of the ’00s and under the influence of DOOM, Madlib, and J Dilla. And to celebrate it, Will Watts stitched together this amazing and hypnotic video. I’m going to find a way to loop these 48 seconds of video and sound, and spend the day starting straight into the LSD trailed abyss brought to life by these very active kids.

Event: Experimental Portland & Lifelike Family Presents…: Cloud City Cars, Delyria, Ethernet & Kendall Station

That’s right, friends…we are back in the show promotion business. And we couldn’t be more excited to get back into the mix with this collaborative show featuring some amazing electronic-based acts associated with the Lifelike Family crew:

Cloud City Cars

Delyria

Ethernet

Kendall Station

The whole thing is going down at Turn Turn Turn tomorrow night starting at 8pm. And it will cost you a mere $5 to get in (though if you have less than that, we will not turn turn turn you away). We hope to see you there.
