By Nils on Wednesday, August 21st, 2013

This Tuesday (Monday in the UK) sees the release of Belle and Sebastian’s “The Third Eye Centre,” a compilation of rarities and non-LP tracks from the last decade. You can hear it now streaming at THE GUARDIAN.

Additionally, Under The Radar’s John Everhart spoke with Stuart and Stevie about each track, and their reminiscing and rambling is going up in parts today, tomorrow, and Friday at Under The Radar. Part one:

SECRETS AND LIES WITH STUART AND STEVIE AT UNDER THE RADAR MAGAZINE

” ‘Your Secrets’ was from 1994. It was about meeting up in the afternoon to talk about German philosophers. There wasn’t much else to do back then.”

Paul Banks Drops Mixtape featuring El-P, High Prizm, Mike G and Talib

By Adam F on Friday, January 25th, 2013

Just in from the department of unexpectedness…. Banks (no, not Lloyd) has upped a mixtape and it’s called EVERYBODY ON MY DICK LIKE THEY SUPPOSED TO BE.

Actually, we kinda knew this was happening.  Paul sent over a rough mixtape about 9 months ago of his beats and production and it was genius. And what, with all the Kendricks and the A$APs and whatever, we thought a mixtape would take Banks to new heights if we got it out months before release.

But the long-standing issues with Matador and the rap game quickly blew up our pre-release hype strategy.  Long story short, we have earned a certain “cash-only” rep in the hip hop world requiring us to either send briefcases handcuffed to interns to studios deep in Flatbush or…. call in favors which takes time.

In this case, Paul called in a some mega-favors and got features from El-P, Talib, Mike G, and… hold up, HIGH PRIZM (né High Priest).

(Programming note, I’ve spent the entire morning doing things to all sorts of websites that we aren’t ever allowed to do.  I AM DARKTOOB. And I feel like Dean Bein.)

Listen to the whole thing over on Soundcloud:

The El-P cut entitled “Quite Enough” has been excerpted for those needing “an entry point”.
