HASH is psyched to announce that next Thursday, October 18th, we will be co-sponsoring a night of music, part of an unofficial CMJ showcase at Hotel Chantelle on the Lower East Side. We’re possibly even more psyched to mention that the extended DJ set / rooftop after-party will feature not only a slew of DJs but also Bronx emcee MaG, featured in our Spring Issue.

“I just wanted to make a record that would sound good from beginning to end while cruising down a highway and hold the listener’s interest the whole time.” —Nate Brenner
News this week from Nate Brenner, whose time grinding the highways last year on tour with tune-yards became a chief inspiration for his forthcoming solo LP.

Dirty Glow is a strange brew of groove&blues built from found sounds, homemade instruments, and Brenner’s funk- and jazz-reared bass stylings. Expect it October 9th, on Plug Research Music. Lead single “Robotic” is below: A Ke$ha meets Kraftwerk synth jam, it’s more an upbeat twist than deep ‘n dark churners like “In The Summer” or “Evil Dancer”—also promising highlights.
