    Official music video for "LMG" by SIMS, Doomtree Records 2010 Directed and Animated by Matt Scharenbroich www.mattscharenbroich.com The third single off of Bad Time Zoo, released earlier this year, showcases SIMS in a new way, animated. SIMS explains how the video came to be by saying, “I usually have decent ideas when it comes to conceptualizing music videos, but this one was a challenge. The song itself is borderline cheesy as is, which is why Beak and I love it. We knew the video couldn’t be too cutsie and could absolutely not take place in a bar. After those parameters, we were out of ideas so we enlisted the services of Matt Scharenbroich, a really talented visual artist and the drummer in Beak's old band TPC. Created in director Scharenbroich’s studio over the course of an icy winter in Minneapolis the “LMG” video is the end result of more than 1600 individual drawings, 400 cups of coffee, 60 markers and two ecstatic hands. The video was made using a technique called rotoscoping, which is “the tracing of live-action film frames in order to capture a more realistic movement. It has an immediate kinetic energy that results from the inevitable variation of the tactile mediums used throughout. Markers smear and fade, graphite scratches into the page, and ephemeral, singular ideas punctuate single frames in the rhythm of the process.” Sounds simple right? The video highlights the contrast between the confessional, dark narrative of the verses and the overjoyed, positive message of the chorus. The diaristic song felt sincere and energetic, and rotoscoping “captures SIMS’ performance and catapults it into another more joyful sphere where fingers transform into bottle rockets and fireworks emerge from palms.” purchase Bad Time Zoo: bit.ly/​BadTimeZoo download free Wildlife EP: bit.ly/​SimsWildlife www.doomtree.net/

                Lazerbeak is one of the seven members of Doomtree, Minneapolis’ ascendant hip-hop collective. He’s most well known for his rib-crushing production. He’s contributed beats to Wale, P.O.S, Dessa, and almost every Doomtree project. But his career started many years before he was making rap music. As a fourteen year-old, Aaron Mader—not yet Lazerbeak—formed a band with three of his best friends. They called themselves The Plastic Constellations. They were earnest and exuberant. And they were really effing good. Spin called them child prodigies. By the time they turned fifteen, they’d played the First Avenue stage (Minneapolis’ historic venue, in which Prince filmed Purple Rain.) TPC made music together for twelve years, signed to Frenchkiss Records, and inked distribution deals in North America and Australia. They toured with The Hold Steady, earning praise from major critics (Reader’s Digest, MTV.com) and from notoriously hard-to-please indie tastemakers (“I went home a believer.” –Pitchfork Media). While still playing and recording with TPC, Mader got involved with the Doomtree crew through his high school friendship with Stefon Alexander, now known as P.O.S. (To keep things in perspective, Mader is still years away from legally buying booze at this point in our story.) Beak got a loan from his folks to buy his first MPC from Guitar Center. Stef came over in the afternoon to show him the ropes. No looking back. Enter Lazerbeak. Now twenty-eight, Lazerbeak has produced over 400 beats. With Doomtree he’s toured North America, playing his MPC live on stage. The press often cites Doomtree’s innovative production as a defining characteristic of the collective—due in no small part to Lazerbeak’s layered breaks, driving guitar lines, and generally neck-snapping orchestrations. In September of 2010, Doomtree will proudly present Lazerbeak’s full-length record Legend Recognize Legend. He wrote, sang, played, and programmed the entire project, with a few contributions from his teammates in TPC and Doomtree. It’s bold, infectiously melodic, and it draws from the full range of Lazerbeak’s musical experience. Legend Recognize Legend has the enthusiasm of the TPC era; the lyrics of a mature songwriter; and the fresh sound of a talented musician pushing himself to break new ground.

                    The Spring Classic in Varraze opened with the first European premiere of the Bones Brigade Documentary and ended with an awards ceremony that celebrated the diverse styles and talent of some of the best transition and street skaters in the world. Seventeen different titles were up for grabs at the 3-day event on the Italian Ligurian seashore. Judges awarded technical tricks, old school style, switch skills and even attitude to spread the 10,000 Euro prize across genres and award cash to a crew of deserving skaters. Saturday qualifiers narrowed the field in the Mini Ramp contest to 20 competitors for Sunday’s finals. The “Cash for Tricks” best trick event gave several skaters the instant gratification of cash in hand as soon as the judges saw something they liked. In batches of 10-40 Euro, cash was doled out with Alain Goikotxea, Guillaume Mocquin, Kevin Kowalski and Dannie Carlsen stacking up the biggest piles of money. The Street competition awarded prize money to the best single lines in the course, which stretched almost the entire length of the Varazze Pier, shouldering a small line up of surfers catching waves throughout the day. Martin Pek came in first with 2000 Euro for a Nollie Crooked grind down the big rail and a nollie bigger spin over the gap. Nassim Guammaz took home 1200 Euro after landing a nose blunt slide down the big rail and a 50-50 on the down rail over the gap. Kris Vile came in third with 800 Euro for a lipslide on the big rail and bigspin kickflip over the gap. Saturday night, over 5000 filled the street for an unforgettable concert in the heart of Varrazze. Headliners Turbonegro shook the crowd with their fierce brand of hard core rock n’ roll while fireworks lit up the night sky. Alternative Hip Hop crew Doomtree reached out to energetic party goers through beats and rhymes, with an intelligent blend of showmanship and sheer talent. Italian hip hop samurai Salmo dropped heavy beats and spit furious raps to stir the crowd into a frenzy after opening acts Those Furious Flames and The Peawees started the night off right. Beer flowed, the streets were closed and the typical Italian Riveria was transformed into an outdoor concert venue to write home about. Vans raised 2000 Euro for local charity Oratorio Salesiani Don Daniele to help underprivileged kids in the area by selling t-shirts and hats at the event.
