Amidst the frenzy drummed up from their on-stage collabos with Wu Tang impresario GZA at SXSW earlier this month, The Black Lips have premiered a brand new video for "I'll Be With You," another standout from their latest Vice Records offering, 200 Million Thousand. Premiered last week on MTV2's Subterranean, you can currently catch footage from the show and some extras over at their blog. Need more? There's the Bandstand Busking performance of the song from the Lips' stop in London earlier this year. Tired of visuals? MP3 is available after the jump.
There was a psychedelic re-awakening of sorts in the late 1980's, due in part to the pervasive cultural trend towards retrospective of the late-1960's "Summer of Love". In the midst of this, there appeared the psych-pop of The Dukes of Stratosphear.

I laid there turning green with envy, comfortable, if angry, in my bed about 45 minutes before the bus left from Memphis to head to the South by Southwest music conference in Austin, TX.

Tonight is the Loudersoft + Funke edition of Putting In Work at Dish. We're going to be tearing through everything we can find that makes you dance -- anthems, jams, classics, breaks, disco, whatever we got. There's no cover at Dish tonight, the kitchen is open till 11pm, and the music goes from 10pm until 3am. If you're in Memphis, head to 948 S. Cooper (corner of Cooper & Young). You're gonna dance. I promise you will.
You already know how much I love the new O+S record. I'm thrilled to offer you a second song from the album, one that I think will give you an even better window into their sonic diversity.

O+S - Permanent Scar
You can purchase o+s from Amazon by clicking here. O+S will be appearing at SXSW on Friday, March 20th, 11pm @ The Radio Room.
The band Casxio come from Los Angeles and are being hailed as "a little bit more than just the latest band to jump into the dance-music pool" by the LA Times.
That's high praise coming from a city which was once fueled by the disco it helped to create. Enjoy this track, "Seventeen", then go check them out at SXSW (where they have several appearances).
Casxio - Seventeen
Casxio will be appearing March 18, 19, 20 & 21st at SXSW. Check schedule for times/details.
