It's easy to dismiss DJ Dog Dick
as a juvenile joke. Anyone with that
name for a project can't be doing anything worthy of my time, right? But dig deeper, and what emerges is a man eloquently, urgently capturing the details of his life on the fringes of America. After years operating in the outsider noise scene, combining modular drones and off-kilter raps into a singular live show
, 2013 saw a move toward something different. The Identity EP
earlier this year was his statement of intent
, a miniature coming of age narrative (stream full EP here
.) His debut full-length on Hoss Records
, The Life Stains
was released last week. It's an ambitious, often deeply personal pop album. A modern song cycle
about the way we live now. It also happens to be slathered in weirdo diarrhea death production. Watch the video for "Dried Old Leaves"
and listen to "The Grease I Got"
, one of the best songs I've heard this year. And read a great little interview
with Noisey that sheds light on where Eisenberg came from and where he's going with this unusual project.

The new Kitty (formerly Kitty Pryde)
EP, D.A.I.S.Y. Rage
is out today for your free streaming/download. If'n you wanna tumblrize and girlize and otherwise coyly subvert yr hip hop. ☠DEAD❤ISLAND☠
video. Previously seen
on MetaFilter for her Okay Cupid
and Orion's Belt
videos which sparked heated debates. Noisey has an interview
with her, and she's also taking over their twitter
for the day. "If her new EP feels like the work of an artist coming into their own, that’s because it is: It’s as cohesive a body of work as the rapper has ever put out, showcasing the crooked self-assurance that it takes to cop to shit like bed-wetting and making a song with a guy who rejected you."
