New stuff from Gorillaz. The video is for the track "Rock It" off their new album D-Sides. Officially out November 20th, D-Sides is a compliation of early demos and previously unreleased tracks. Single's tracks and rarities like "Bill Murray", "We Are Happy Landfill" and "Stop The Dams" all show up on this double disc, along with remixes by Soulwax, DFA, Hot Chip and Junior Senior.

Saul Williams + NiggyTardust

Saturday, November 3, 2007

Poet Saul Williams released his newest album The Inevitable Rise and Liberation of NiggyTardust. This album is produced by Trent Raznor of Nine Inch Nails. Here’s the scoop on his new project from

Enter poet Saul Williams: he’s decided to release his new album “The Inevitable Rise and Liberation of Niggytardust” on his website for 5 bucks or absolutely nothing. Your choice.

He was encouraged to make the move by Nine Inch Nails frontman Trent Reznor, who he collaborates with on the album.

This isn’t only about money. It’s potentially the way towards artistic freedom. An album by a poet with a message and an industrial rocker isn’t going to get much attention from the marketing department at a major label. Where’s the hook? Got a dance to go with it? The kids won’t buy it. And there’s that title, “The Inevitable Rise and Liberation of Niggytardust.”

Feel what you may: Nas naming his album “Nigger” is a surface level move that some people just can’t see themselves getting past to the deeper observations that the album will have. For sure at this stage in his career, Nas isn’t about to take a drunken stumble through ignorant park.

Making that point even clearer is Saul Williams making the play on words to imply the word nigger.

The way he sees it..

“I’ve thought long and hard about all the discussion surrounding racial epithets etc. and chose this title as a means of furthering the dialogue while also showing how creativity will outlive and outshine hatred of any kind. The Niggytardust concept sets me free to do more on stage with costume, etc. than one might expect from a regular Saul Williams show. It allows me to put my theatre training to use.”

Remember to spread the word of NiggyTardust.
