  • The first video from Trash Talk’s forthcoming album 119 album was released today and is pretty much exactly what you would expect from a hardcore group signed to Odd Future’s record label. Directed by none other than Tyler, The Creator, the video for “F.E.N.B.,” which stands for “Forwards Ever Backwards Never,” features a lot of people hitting each other, a lot of graffitiing and fire, a cop or two, a really expensive sports car, and a small child. Check out the video below:

  • People need to stop stealing instruments. Last night all of Grimes gear was stolen in Manchester, England following a show. According to Pitchfork, the missing equipment includes a Roland GAIA SH-01 synthesizer, Roland SP 404 sampler, Line6 M9 stompbox, Mackie 802-VLZ3 mixer, and cables. Keep your fingers crossed that she gets her equipment back soon, and be sure to check out Grimes live on KEXP below:

  • Johnny Marr is playing guitar on the soundtrack for the upcoming British film The Sweeny, based off the 1970’s British crime drama of the same name. Although he did not write the score, Marr appears on every track with the exception of the original The Sweeny theme. Check out “Regan’s Beginning” below, and head over to Pitchfork for more information.

  • I haven’t actually watched this video as I’m sitting in the crowded KEXP office amongst many respectable and upstanding individuals, but apparently the video for Big Boi’s latest song “She Said OK” featuring Theophilus London is basically just soft-core porn. Big Boi’s highly-anticipated followup to his 2010 album Sir Lucious Left Foot titled Vicious Lies and Dangerous Rumors is due out November 15. So yeah, check out the lyrics to “She said OK” here and if you still want to watch the NSFW video, do that here.
