Here at Anticon HQ we've been pretty geeked about the new Cyclist record that our buddies at Leaving Records are putting out next month. So naturally, we're even more excited to see that one of the best cuts (also found on the recently-released Dual Form cassette) got a super cool video from Los-Angeles' own Miko Revereza. Enjoy!
This Friday, join your Anticon HQ badboys Sodapop and Low Limit for MEDIUM #RARE, our monthly excursion into the best of rappy rap music at The Crosby in Santa Ana. Our special guests this month are two Los Angeles mainstays who need no introduction, the awesome Nosaj Thing and Sweatson Klank (formerly known as Take).
The event is free. RSVP on our facebook event page. Come early becuase occupancy is limited!
HI HOLY HELL EVERYBODY. A couple of things:
First off, there are a slew of new Baths dates coming up, including a few opening dates with THE POSTAL SERVICE. O_o. AAAHHH! FOR REAL!! Direct/sole support. This is actually a real thing and I'm still pinching myselffffffff. I'm also playing shows with Anticon friends WHY? before appearing at SXSW, and playing Sasquatch fest as well!! Dates/tickets listed below.
I'm in the process of putting together a new live show, so expect future Baths sets to have some awesome and exciting new additions to the setup. Thrilled about all these upcoming shows because we'll be debuting material from the new record — Projected release date is the middle of this year, but more info on that later on :)
EXCITED FOR 2013!!

Poppy is the coolest greyhound ever. There's no doubt about that. SERENGETI tipped us off to this slamming video featuring the triumphant spinting action of Poppy, aptly set to his tune "Greyhound", from 2012's C.A.R.
The rumors are true. A second LP from Los Angeles-based Will Wiesenfeld, aka Baths, is complete, and now in the mastering process (see photo above from a session at Daddy Kev's studio, Cosmic Zoo). We're not going to reveal much more than that at this point, but keep a lookout for more details in coming weeks.
Peep this new SERENGETI tune, a bonus track from his forthcoming Graveface Records release, Saal (out February 12). Produced by Sicker Man.
The fellows of the Anticon office (Sodapop & Low Limit) are celebrating the Mayan Apocalypse this Friday at the Crosby in Santa Ana. The event will feature a super special surprise guest of the most dandy variety to help usher in a new world order with a soundtrack of the choicest of rap tunes. And if we all survive the impending doom, you'll be able to catch future Medium #Rare installments for FREE every third Friday.
Everyone's favorite American singer-songwriter Taylor Swift gets the remix treatment from D33J this week, and the result is a severly moody hood anthem, screwed to the point of no return. It's a love story, so grab it over at D33J's soundcloud before it's gone.
Our guys Odd Nosdam and Jel are offering up some SERENGETI beats for free over at Nosdam's Bandcamp page. Titled GETI BEATS vol.1, the release contains instrumental versions of songs from the Kenny Dennis EP, C.A.R., and 4 previously unreleased tracks as well. Holla.
