dope of the month club :: march movie madness

March 30, 2016

What's that acronym lazy music writers use that's 'for fans of' or 'if you like'? IRYLFOH?  I forget.  But I'm a fucking rap sommelier, so for each of this month's joints, I'm pairing it with what movie you should watch with the sound off.  Like how you pair wine with food? That's a thing fancy people do.

Between courses, amuse the bouche with these. Or these are aperitifs. I don't really know which is which.

DJ Skizz & Milano Constantine :: .38 Snub Nose (Adrian Younge Freestyle) pairs well with the Easy Andy scene in Taxi Driver
Timeless Truth :: The Cold Wave pairs well with The Sopranos' 'Pine Barrens' episode
Tone Tank & Serengeti :: Cop/Boost already pulls together two great James Woods flicks.
Dillon & Paten Locke (feat. Von Pea & Malkovich) :: Bourbon mixes best with Barfly

Main courses:
Basmala :: Reboot pairs well with season one of Battle of the Planets aka Science Ninja Team Gatchaman (It was really called that? Huh.)

DDay One :: Gathered Between pairs well with Dovzhenko's Earth

Elucid :: Osage has a similar palate to Killer of Sheep

NoEmotion GoldMask :: A Freaking American pairs well with Fear of a Black Hat

odd nosdam :: SISTERS pairs well with Luc Besson's Le Dernier Combat

Open Mike Eagle & Paul White :: Hella Personal Film Festival Mike says this goes best with Panic In Needle Park, but I'm thinking maybe Waking Life has more the right cucumber and oak tones.

The Purist & WestSide Gunn :: Roses Are Red...So Is Blood  brings forth hints of The Pawnbroker

Quelle Chris :: Lullabies for the Broken Brain has similar tannins to Fantastic Planet

Saul Williams :: Martyr Loser King is best complemented by 12 Years A Slave played backwards

Spectre :: The Last Shall Be First pairs well with John Carpenter's Ghosts of Mars

We Are Not For Them :: Captures, Vol. 1 also pairs well with Ghosts of Mars

You know what, forget all that, all these records go well with Ghosts of Mars.  Pretty much all music does. 

Actually if you don't feel like it, don't listen to any of the records, just go watch Ghosts of Mars. It's probably on TV right now. It's so fucking bad, but I always end up watching it.
