The Glitch Mob
For many of us, this may very well be the coldest weekend of the winter (so far.) Chicago finally got some snowfall, and I realized once again the joys and woes of snow. It’s funny how as a kid, snow was seriously the best thing ever. It meant the possibility of no class. It meant hours of hurling snowballs at your friends and girls you had a crush on. It meant writing your name in pee all over your neighbors yard (well, it still means that.) Now, all it means is shoveling and bad traffic. For those living in warmer climates, I feel bad for your childhoods but I guess at the end of the day, you won. For errbody else: don’t get left out in the cold, heat it up this weekend with today’s Friday At Five. Bring it, snow.

Earlier this week, LA trio The Glitch Mob dropped their newest EP “We Can Make The World Stop,” contributing yet another excellent edition into their short but groundbreaking musical career. Their 2010 debut album “Drink the Sea” was a landmark in electronic music, creating a glitchy, grimey, bass-heavy electronic style that their new EP refines and expands on in every way. While each of the three new tracks display an equally unique and gripping facet of their style, the title track truly stands out. Combining strings, piano and electronic effects into an ominous and epic symphony of sound, “We Can Make The World Stop” solidifies The Glitch Mob’s standing as an up-and-coming force in the electronic music scene.
Album Rating: 8/10
His music inspires me to decimate random objects and travel back in time only to pillage small European villages.
The Glitch Mob – “Drive It Like You Stole It” (King Fantastic Remix)
There is not much I know about this King Fantastic other than his music inspires me to decimate random objects and travel back in time only to pillage small European villages. When he laces a track with his West-Coast clean cut voice it immediately turns into an auditory grenade.
There are many artists who don a facade when they rap. There are many artists who you doubt will do what they say. King Fantastic is not one of them, and when you listen to the way he rides a beat you will understand why. He is the exact definition of a beast and when he starts delivering his lyrics, mayhem and chaos ensue. #ThatIsAll
Hit the jump to stream/download his debut album “Finger Snaps and Gun Claps.” Trust me, there is nothing that will inspire you more to participate in debauchery or various forms of lawlessness.
