Girl Talk & Jim Jones Collaborate On "Believe In Magic"

In late February 2011, as Girl Talk was about to head out for his second month of touring in support of All Day, Pitchfork TV brought Girl Talk and Dipset’s Jim Jones together in Jones’ Nomad District Studio in New York for a special edition of their “Selector” series. Together, with Girl Talk producing a beat sampled from Honey Cone’s “Want Ads” and Jones freestyling over it, the two created a new track -- “Believe in Magic.” The results of the “Selector” taping exceeded all expectations and Jones was so pleased he took things one step further and invited R&B vocalist Lloyd to contribute, essentially making “Believe in Magic” the perfect summer jam. Watch “Believe In Magic” being made, and download Jim Jones ft. Lloyd and Girl Talk’s “Believe In Magic” below.

BRAIDS Announce UK Tour & Summer Canadian Festivals

Native Speaker the debut long player from justifiably tipped Canadian quartet BRAIDS started as a musical experiment, now several years on, the results of that experiment are being gloriously realized. BRAIDS have spent the last few months wowing audiences across America with their live show, including tastemakers at this year’s SXSW. UK audiences are in for an equally memorable experience when Braids tour the UK for the first time this May.
The band will then be  gearing up for a long run of shows this Summer at 7 Canadian Fesitivals. Starting off the summer with the Flemish Eye showcase at Great Hall with Chad VanGaalen and Jennifer Castle, the band crosses the country hitting Sled Island in Calgary, the Ottawa Bluesfest, Hillside in Guelph, Osheaga in Montreal and the Regina Folk Festival.
Also, the band's recent homecoming performance at the Grand in Calgary was recently captured by CBC Radio One. Despite having debilitating bronchitis, singer Raphaelle Standell-Prestongave a mesmerizing performance to the sold-out crowd while armed with a vaporizer and throat spray. Check out the recording here.
