pump up the volume
The Cool Kids have upped yet another brand new preview track from their upcoming LP, The Bake Sale, which is shaping up to be one of the more refreshing hip-hop releases of the year. They take us back to the summer of '89 on "Pump Up the Volume," an ode to cassette tapes, gold chains, and big-ass boomboxes, that samples the Eric B. and Rakim classic "I Know You Got Soul." Stream it at their space. The Bake Sale is due out any day now, barring further distribution issues, and you'll be able to catch the Cool Kids in July at the Pitchfork Music Festival.
Atlanta's Klever rolls through Dallas tonight to spin at Suite with our friend Sober. Check the flier, and grab Klever's uptempo club remix of the Cool Kids' "Gold and a Pager":
