Pitchfork: Die Antwoord Enlist Marilyn Manson, Jack Black, Flea, Cara Delevingne, More for "Ugly Boy" Video

Die Antwoord have shared the video for "Ugly Boy", from this year's Donker Mag. Directed by Ninja and produced by Yo-Landi Vi$$er, it features the duo doing their usual thing of rapping and singing while looking real, real weird. Only this time, they enlisted a bunch of famous friends to do the same. Jack Black, Marilyn Manson, Red Hot Chili Peppers bassist Flea, the ATL Twins, Dita Von Teese, and model Cara Delevingne all show up wearing makeup and/or scar tissue to mug with Ninja and Yo-Landi. (Except for Manson and Von Teese, who basically came as is.)

And, despite internet rumors, that's not Aphex Twin in blackface and the "Hi, My Name is God" sweatshirt. Sorry.
Cafe Tacvba's Groundbreaking Influence, Then And Now

We're always thrilled to share new music. But this week is a special treat, as some of Alt.Latino's favorite new artists release new music that's driving us crazy (in a good way). We also celebrate the 20th anniversary of Cafe Tacvba's album Re — a crucial, seminal record that changed Latin music as we know it.

Any lover of contemporary Latin music will tell you that when Re came out, there was a moment of pause: This is how Latin rock is supposed to sound. It's cool to hear "El Aparato" alongside newer artists who were clearly inspired by the Mexican music legends.

As if that weren't enough to have us happily humming throughout the week, we've got an interview about the new film The Book Of Life with NPR's Mandalit Del Barco. Not only does the film look stellar, but it also features a spine-tingling rendition of Cafe Tacvba's "El Aparato."

So join us for another jam-packed, dance-inducing episode of Alt.Latino — and, as always, let us know what you think in the Comments.


If someone is using my theme Viereinhalb, please git pull. The comment-bbcode-buttons should be fixed now.

Aug Stone hits the accelerator on the Archdrude's 'Time-Shifting Gnostic Hooligan Road Novel'
When asked about the complexity of his first novel, V, Thomas Pynchon famously replied 'Why should things be easy to understand?' Julian Cope, it seems, has adopted this motto at maximum volume for his own fiction debut. In the midst of all the drug taking, time travel, and revenge plots, perhaps most confusing is Cope's choice of subject matter: while we all know that in appreciating a work of fiction, it's a mistake to look for too much of the real life behind an author's charact

Bob Mould: Tiny Desk Concert

The former Hüsker Dü and Sugar frontman plugs in for a characteristically loud four-song set — three from his new solo album (Beauty and Ruin) and one from the band that launched his career.

Bob Mould came alone, except for his 1987 Lake Placid Blue Fender Stratocaster. We provided the Epiphone Blues Custom 30 amp, which he promptly cranked. Needless to say, he announced his own Tiny Desk Concert without using the paging system.Mould isn't a shy man — his power chords will tell you that — but he's humble and gentle. Many know Mould from his days with Hüsker Dü, an awesome punkish band from Minnesota that laid the groundwork for the Pixies and more. His subsequent work with Sugar managed to do something none of his oth

Firstlook: Leaked Files: German Spy Company Helped Bahrain Hack Arab Spring Protesters - The Intercept

A notorious surveillance technology company that helps governments around the world spy on their citizens sold software to Bahrain during that country’s brutal response to the Arab Spring movement, according to leaked internal documents posted this week on the internet. The documents show that FinFisher, a German surveillance company, helped Bahrain install spyware on 77 computers, including those belonging to human rights lawyers and a now-jailed opposition leader, between 2010 and 2012—a period that includes Bahrain’s crackdown on pro-democracy protesters. ...

Alleine solche Interviews sind es wert, daß die PARTEI im EU Parlament sitzt.
Ich wünsche Herrn Sonneborn weiterhin viel Spaß Erfolg.

Heise: Gefangen in Europa

Sommer-Interview mit dem PARTEI-Politiker Martin Sonneborn zu seinem gescheiterten Rücktritt
Lassen Sie uns auch mal über Politik reden. Welche Abstimmungen im EU-Parlament waren für Sie die ulkigsten?
Martin Sonneborn: Die Abstimmungen sind weitgehend unspektakulär, zumeist reine Formsache, weil bereits vorher alles verhandelt und beschlossen ist. Ulkig war das Abspielen der Europäischen Hymne. Ich sitze ja inmitten der Verhaltensauffälligen, und sämtliche Nationalisten und Rechtsradikalen sind aufgestanden und haben sich umgedreht.
naja, ich mag Sonneborn, aber das Interview war eher mau. Aber seine Amtszeit ist ja (hoffentlich) noch lang, da wird es bestimmt noch mehr Chancen für hoffentlich bissigeres geben.
Naja, ziemlich kurz ist es schon ... oder kurz angebunden ...
Da geht noch mehr Sonneborn!
