True Womanhood 1st Release in New Series

DC's True Womanhood have released the first song in their series REEL TOO REAL. Here's what Thomas had to say about it. "The song is called MINAJAH and it was inspired by the recent creation of the Moombahton dance craze, right here in DC.  We didn't use Ableton like everyone else because we are idiots and we thought we could make electronic music using live instruments patched through effects pedals.  Also, Stevie Wonder shook our hands the day we bought the synth that this song was played on and told us it was a good choice.  His magic apparently rubbed off.   (We are not kidding.  This is a true story.  His hands smell like sandalwood.)"

The Death Set release "Slap Slap Slap Pound Up Down Snap" Video

The Death Set is a trio of crazy "almost kids" from Brooklyn, Sydney, Baltimore and Philly who seem interested in picking up where the Beastie Boys left off - at least in this song entitled after a handshake that Brooklyn bands like Ninjasonik and Cerebral Ballzy (featured in the instructional video here) apparently use to greet each other. The rest of the band repertoire is more electro-punk but as incendiary and fun.
