“Nobody can save hip hop”

  Yeah, we’re that Nobody.

De La’s new album, and the Anonymous Nobody, out today.  Instead of dealing with the sample clearance from their past albums, they assembled musicians to jam and recorded over 200 hours of live music.  They then launched a successful Kickstarter, while going through the music and constructing new songs.

The album feature some more mature musings about mortality, infidelity, and even royalties.  Gorillaz’ collaborator Damon Albarn makes an appearance as well as  Justin Hawkins, David Byrne, Little Dragon, Snoop and 2Chainz.  The album begins with a glorious intro from Jill Scott:


They’ve also released a documentary chronicling the making of the album called, We’re Still Here (now).

It’s getting really hard for us to order music from distributors, so we’re just linking you…

chavez_chainey

Shepard Fairey is in SF this week, and he and his crew will be working on two murals to celebrate the opening of American Civics, a collaboration between Shepard and the estate of Jim Marshall.   The first mural (image on the left) is Cesar Chavez at 453 Hayes St.  The image Marshall took is after Chavez completed his 300 Mile March to Sacramento in support of farmworkers’ rights in 1966.

The image of Fannie Lee Chaney (right) will appear at 701 Alabama Street. Marshall’s photo is from 1964, on the day Chaney found out her son, James Chaney, and two friends were murdered by the Ku Klux Klan for registering African Americans to vote during Freedom Summer.

The opening of American Civics will be on Saturday, August 13th at the San Francisco Art Exchange, 458 Geary.  There will be a meet & greet from 2-4pm.

Obey’s new line for Fall has just dropped.
