Lucidreamers First Mensiversary Mixtape !!!

We just turned 1 month and we’re excited about what we’ve created thus far and what we have in our pockets for the future. As a gift to all our supporters, we decided to re-work and re-release the Who’s Afraid of Beirut? (WAOB) Lucidreamers Guest Edition mixtape. The mixtape (original and re-worked version) is the love child of all the  fun we had at SXSW 2011.  Click on the image above to download.

“Mama this surely is a dream.”

So much nostalgia from the 1990’s, it is a bit overwhelming.  Heard this on the radio recently and was taken back to the days of daydreaming in 5th period social studies.

We definitely missed the memo that Marcy Playground is actually on tour , making a stop at SXSW last month.  Not sure what to make of the comeback, but we won’t be forgetting this dandelion teenage dream anytime soon.

Vodpod videos no longer available.

Spoek Mathambo: Guys We’d !!!

Nthato James Monde Mokgata, better known as Spoek Mathambo (pronounced “spook”), is the self-aware South-African rapper, dj (H.I.V.I.P), and graphic artist that has caught and held our attention.  It is refreshing when an artist – especially a young one – can surprise you not only with their talent but with their thoughts.

Catch him touring Europe this month with another Lucidreamers favourite, Rainbow Arabia:

We are anxiously awaiting East-coast tour dates…

“You just want to play with his hair, right?”

Yuna Zarai: Birds Like !!!

Fader Fort by Fiat at SXSW was amazing. It definitely re-opened our eyes to how !!! Fader is. While trolling the Fader website we came across this-  Fader label’s most recent artist, singer/songwriter Yuna. There are so many reasons we think this is so cool, but we’ll let you decide for yourself.
