Weekly Bits 3/2011

The weekly bits are a great way to sum up a week of my Twitter posts. They are also a great excuse for being lazy and not writing articles for a week.

Brainfeeder has posted some give-aways titled Lunch Special II and Lunch Special III this week, fans of Jeremiah Jae watch out! They’re also giving a first preview to the forthcoming album by Austin Peralta, which really sounds like something.

The Leaf label has put together a 7-disc Caribou bundle, featuring previous albums, exclusive tracks and two DVDs. You can order it here.

As mentioned before, the new Pixelord EP will go on sale tomorrow. Read the interview in Knowledge Magazine and enter their competition to win copies.

LA’s Stones Throw is sharing a previously unreleased Jaylib track, well it was released not long ago on Madlib’s Medine Show #11.

Celebrating their 4th anniversary, Fine Art Records are giving away the Fabrice Lig album for free.

Not many mixtapes this week. You probably heard Morgan Zarate‘s guestmix for URB already. You also should have heard the Mark Pritchard podcast for Ho Hum before, if not you can now find it on Mixcloud.

But the best mix I’ve heard in a while is Jamie xx guestmix for Benji B. In case you missed it the first time around, you can still download it.

Thanks to 8bitch for posting Liz Copeland‘s in-depth interview with Drexciya‘s James Stinson. Originally recorded in 2002, just week’s before James passed away. The only ever Drexciya interview!

And finally, here’s a nice series of photos taken by Billy Monk at Capetown night clubs between 1967 and 1969.
