Initiated early on into the DC and B’more club scene, Shuttle’s been spinning for a cult-following in Boston and alongside the likes of Diplo and Yelle. I couldn’t pass-up his track “Rotten Guts” Featuring Cadence Weapon.


A recipe for a great band: sensational live performances across the globe, songs interlacing languages with a sound a la Stereolab or Air, and it was only a matter of time before RH+ would excite the taste buds of indie fans in the US. While packing a globally-inspired palette, the band boasts a flavor particular to their hometown of Santiago. Check out their track “Curb” and the “Rockinsol” video. The album is out on Tuesday, so expect a review by then. 


Not a day goes by that I do not hear about Late of the Pier. So don’t delay. These guys probably put on quite the show, based on the riotous sounds on “The Bears are Coming” and, if you dig Bloc Party and MGMT (aka: what I woke up to), then you’ll be wondering what took you so long to find LOTP… but maybe it has to do with their name? The album’s Fantasy Black Channel, you can hear songs on MySpace and the music player. 


Changing gears, Georgia-based rapper Homebwoi is making waves with “Gimmie a Break”” appearing in various podcasts and his mug in magazines (paging The Fader). Freestyling since he was a tot, Homebwoi (nee James Maddox, Jr.) landed his record deal with Collipark Music on the spot after he did a track with labelmates The Ying Yang Twins immediately after meeting them the first time. Talk about first impressions. MySpace


I’m still obsessing over Animal Collective, and there are two live BBC tracks–including a new song! Thanks to I Guess I’m Floating! Here they are: What Would I Want Sky and Lion in a Coma
