New Stuff

iwabo-krystaOne of these days, I’m going to write a review for Iwrestledabearonce’s It’s All Happening. Swear it. In the meantime, as you could guess, I can tell you that I love the album and think you should buy it. So, that’s the short version.

The disc is finally coming out in Europe on August 31, and the band has launched a new website as a “virtual little treasure chest.” It’s all more or less bonus stuff that can be unlocked by forwarding the page to friends – in other words, X number of forwards unlocks Y cool shit. That’s a nifty little promotional tool.

Already unlocked: a remix of the song “Danger in the Manger” by Mindless Self Indulgence’s Jimmy Urine. The Dillinger Escape Plan’s Ben Weinman has already remixed “Tastes Like Kevin Bacon” as an iTunes exclusive, but it was one of those remixes that barely sounded like the original song. The Urine-“Danger” remix bears (no pun intended) a much stronger resemblance to its base material. Urine basically took the electronic elements and ran with ’em, which won’t surprise anyone familiar with MSI’s music.

Meanwhile, the band was recently soliciting opinions via twitter on which song they should use for their next music video. So I guess we’re getting another IWABO video soon. Nice.

Go here to listen to the Jimmy Urine re-mix.
