In 1998, Elliott recorded some a-cappella vocals for me, specifically to sample and slice-and-dice over beats. They sat on a cassette for 16 years. I just dug it out and completed our collaboration. To be totally clear--this kind of track is exactly what he and I intended to make.
The Deadmen recently premiered a new single from their upcoming EP, which is slated for a March release, on My Old Kentucky Blog. Head to the replies to stream "Let Your Fingers Rule" and keep an eye out for more updates in the coming weeks.

Someone online showed this to me (and I forgot your username, I'm sorry), and it's pretty interesting -- it's all of the new releases on Rdio each week placed into genres.
This is an algorithmically-generated categorization of Rdio new releases by genre. The categorization is artist-based, and cheerfully optimisitic, so releases are listed in any genre where some data from somewhere suggests they might conceivably be relevant. Sometimes this will be laughably wrong. Laugh, and move on. Single-song releases are shown with quoted song names; multiple-song releases are shown with italicized release titles.
The Weaks have signed to Lame-O Records and announced plans to release their debut EP, The World Is A Terrible Place And I Hate Myself And Want To Die, on February 11.
