Le Miel du Mois by Steph Lund: Octobre 2010

Well it seems like the bigger this blog gets the more it becomes a target… The latest battle in the war between EMPT & The Industry is by far the most entertaining and while I can’t got into detail for legal reasons let’s just say I’ll be making some changes to the way music is played on this site to meet the establishment halfway, whatever. To all the creative people out there, don’t hold on to your ideas so tight that no one hears about it but make sure you have bulletproof protection cause greedy and lazy people will do whatever it takes to get a piece of your pie.

That said, listening to this months installment of Le Miel du Mois was a therapeutic experience. First of all, this tape is ridiculously good. I mean the way the music fits the mood of the city and the fall season right now is beyond words.

You crazy for this one Rick (Steph)! – Jay-Z (99 Problems)

Once again Steph drops a mixtape so unique in vibe and style that you have to immediately regard it as your favorite. I think the reason for that is how in tune they are with the general feeling of the times which is quite fresh and might I add not very easy to do. Alright, I’m actually going to go run this tape back for the 3rd time this morning. I can’t get enough, enjoy…

CMJ is the third week in October in New York City. forthebeat is putting on a show October 20th with Transparent and ABC News Amplified. EMPT will also be a part of the night, and we’re all really excited about our line-up. More details on that next week. This month’s mix includes new releases from some of my favorite new artists including Home Video, Kisses, Summer Camp and Wise Blood. Another special track on this mix is newcomers Aux Arc from Savannah, GA. Look out for their first EP later this year, tentatively titled “It’s Hard Swallowing A Novelty.”

Le Miel du Mois by Steph Lund: Juin

Once again back is the incredible…” – Public Enemy (Bring The Noise)

There’s not much you can depend on in this world, lovers always seem to let you down, there’s never anything good on TV, the radio is lame and the Knicks never win but there is one thing that won’t let you down and it’s LMDM. And guess what, it’s back again for the 13th time with 13 new songs custom made for now, not now but right now. I was putting this tape together for Steph and couldn’t get over how in tune it is with how things feel right now. The heat is coming in, the BBQ’s are burning, the beaches are being invaded and everything is in transition. We’re halfway into 2010 and there’s no shortage of things done and things to do, but there’s no valid reason to not enjoy yourself in the process. Once again, Steph has given us a musical experience full of highs and lows as entertaining as they come. I’m in sunny LA and have to go get some breakfast then head over to Hermosa but bet your best buck I’ll be having this in the background. Here are some words from the chef herself, enjoy.
