Posted by johng on Monday, May 4, 2015 at 4:00 PM (EDT)
Image Today is May the Fourth and you know what that means! It's the day that we celebrate Jawbreaker's famed tune, "Sluttering (May 4th)!" (What, you didn't think we would reference some sci-fi movie or something? That would just be nerdy...)

So, to celebrate, we're streaming a new cover of the song by emo veterans Kid Brother Collective. The song is off the upcoming Jawbreaker tribute record What's the Score out on Save Your Generation Records. The comp includes covers of Jawbreaker jams by Ghost Thrower, Lawn Mower, Save Ends and more. The album is out June 23, 2015 (vinyl in late July) and you can pre-order it here.

In the meantime, you can hear KBC's cover below as well as see the track listing. May the Schwartz be with you.

Collector's Corner: Mick Sleeper

Posted by johng on Saturday, May 2, 2015 at 12:00 PM (EDT)
Image And today, we continue Collector's Corner, the feature where we talk to musicians, DJs, producers and fans about their record collections. Today, we're talking to Canadian DJ Mick Sleeper!

Mick Sleeper is the guy to go to if you want to learn about reggae. For years, he ran the Soul Shakedown Party radio show on CJSR where me mixed reggae classics with the rarest of the rares. Now, he runs the Bass Culture podcast where he plays heavy dread reggae, early ska, African funk and a little bit of Clash. On top of that, he created Upsetter.net which is a BOON for reggae fans. If you are just getting into Jamaican music, has has some great "intro courses," playing for you all the legendary songs. After you graduate that, he's got some programs that are straight up doctoral level reggae programs. And our favorite part? Sleeper has an entire, in-depth section dedicated to the history and discography of, perhaps, the greatest record producer ever, Lee "Scratch" Perry. You need to check out his site.

Meanwhile, you can read Sleeper's Collector's Corner segment below.
