Listen to the new Insane Clown Posse song produced by Jack White backed by JEFF the Brotherhood and a little bit of Mozart!

Third Man Records is releasing a new Insane Clown Posse single produced by Jack White, backed by JEFF the Brotherhood and mixed with a little bit of Mozart. The song is called “Leck Mich Im Arsch” which means “Lick Me in the Arse.” The 7-inch single and digital download also offers another ICP track called “Mountain GIrl.” A limited edition vinyl-edition single will be available at Third Man Rolling Record Store at MIFest this September 17th. Also, ICP has volunteered to perform the song at MI Fest. I hope they do!

The Press Release

The press release:

In the grand tradition of peanut butter meeting Iggy’s chest or Bing Crosby getting down with David Bowie, Third Man Records is ecstatic to present the latest in a long-line of unexpected musical pairings…Insane Clown Posse and Mozart.

Back in ’82, ahem, 1782, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart wrote a piece that’s been left out of the spotlight ever since. The title of the piece is “Leck Mich Im Arsch” or literally translated to English as “Lick me in the arse.” Understandably this piece has figuratively been swept under the rug. So who better to give this piece it’s due respect than the wildly successful, much misunderstood, and divisive Southwest Detroit rappers Insane Clown Posse?

With fellow Southwest Detroit-born Jack White at the production helm and musical backing by Nashville’s very own Jeff the Brotherhood, this 2011 version of “Leck Mich Im Arsch” marries Mozart’s melody (and lyrics sung in operatic German) with ICP’s poignant lyrical addition in English and Jeff the B’s monster-riffs, letting the whole thing tie together in the most beautiful of ways.

The b-side “Mountain Girl” finds Violent J and Shaggy 2 Dope telling tall tales about a shotgun wedding, meth problems and moonshine…all pretty common-fare for a twangy country song birthed in Nashville.

The 7″ single and iTunes digital download of “Leck Mich Im Arsch” will be available for sale on September 13th. One-hundred Tri-color versions of the single will be available from the Third Man Rolling Record Store at the MI Fest in Brooklyn, Michigan on September 17th and another 50 Tri-colors will be randomly inserted into mail orders dispatched by Third Man Records.

Artist Spotlight: ANR

September 13 marks the day ANR releases the Deluxe Edition of Stay Kids. ANR is A psychedelic synth-pop duo that met while studying in Miami. The group has played with bands such as Animal Collective, Neon Indian, and No Age, but has spent much of this year headlining their own tour in both the U.S. and the U.K. Noize will be in attendance at their show on September 5th at Detroit’s Lager House.

Their music has drawn comparisons to such groups as MGMT, Passion Pit, Coldplay and even the Red Hot Chili Peppers.

Simple Reasons to Love Spotify and Pay For It!

I have barely touched iTunes since I first downloaded Spotify. Everyone listens to music in their own way. For instance, I’m a new music junkie. Because of Noize, I am always scoping out new and interesting music. I study music and try like heck to keep up with what’s out there. I HATE HATE HATE when people claim that all good music is in the past because they are too lazy to keep up with what’s out there. Spotify could help those people check out new artists in an easier way. Spotify works for me because it’s so damn fast. I can add an artist’s whole discography to my Spotfty  in seconds. To do this all I have to do is search for an artist’s name, highlight the songs I want, and save it to a playlist. With iTunes, I would have to wait for the download to happen and then sync my music to whatever device or devices I want my music on. Syncing is a hassle. When I asked one of my friends why he didn’t use Spotify, he replied that he didn’t like that you don’t OWN the music. I saw “owning” the music as a technicality because as long as the music is available to you whenever you need it, who cares about owning? That’s how I see it! I also like that with Spotify everything is legal:)

I pay the $10/mo fee to allow me to listen to Spotify on my phone and iPad. I mainly listen to music in the car so it’s great to be able to connect my phone to my car stereo and have all my new music readily available. Spotify is going to force me to get an iPhone because I do not own any home docking devices for my Android phone. I would like to be able to use Spotify in certain areas of my house where there is no computer. An iPhone would allow me to do this. Please T-Mobile, get an iPhone already so I don’t have to break my contract. I have not used the offline playlist feature of Spotify yet because I haven’t needed it. Spotify is free to try. Let me know if you need an invite. If you like it, pay for it. It has changed EVERYTHING for me.
