Braaaaaaains. Bad Brains. Just a tad bit of reggae-infused punk rock to get you up and moving this Monday. For any folks off in the Ohio region, the guys will be heading your way in just a few weeks for the Nelsonville Music Festival on Friday 5/18. Or, hey, you can always roadtrip it to Tennessee for Bonnaroo in June. Your choice.

Darryl Jenifer's solo debut album, In Search of Black Judas, has been out and about on the market for a little while. We’re not sure if he ever found that Black Judas, but you can snag your own copy of the record right here.

Whether you’re into tv static, crayons, psychedelic trips, or watching cartoon lions devour mermaid queens, check out Santigold’s pop-star bashing video for “Big Mouth”, a track from her 4th coming album Master of My Make Believe, due out on May 1st. Pay close attention to the choreography that her trusty backup dancers bust in their Limited Vans x Santigold Tosha Hi-tops. We’ll be expecting you to do the same when you catch a show on her recently announced Spring/Summer tour.
