Danny Brown: 'Lost' Video + BTS

 

Join Danny Brown in this behind the scenes look at the making of his video for 'Lost'.  The track comes from his album Atrocity Exhibition, and it's like no other we've seen before.  Matilda Finn directed the VHS styled video takes on the subject matter that has been present in Danny Brown's music.  'Lost' has become a favourite track from the album, and the video offers an additional look at the difference between the man and his life, and the audience perception of who he is.  'Lost' reminds us that while these songs, and videos may seem like the antics of a character, they are in fact based in the experiences of a very real, talented artist and reflect the real life struggles of people everywhere.

Danny Brown's 'Ain't It Funny' Video Directed by Jonah Hill!

Danny Brown's 'Atrocity Exhibition' is not only one of the dopest albums of 2016, but it also seems like it's an examination of how the world responded to the man who gave us 'XXX' and 'Old'.  That same idea is central to the new video for 'Ain't It Funny' directed by Jonah Hill.  Danny Brown plays 'Uncle Danny' on a dated looking sitcom, and lives with his TV family finding humour in his addiction and drugs chasing him like cartoon villains.

21 Things That Make The WAYHOME Lineup GREAT

The Wayhome Festival lineup for 2017 was announced a couple of weeks ago, and the reactions were strong. Aside from the fact that more acts are still to be announced, many took to social media to express their displeasure with the bill.

There are a few things we think people should remember: first, Wayhome is not Lollapalooza. It's a lot closer to Sasquatch. Which is an amazing festival - one of the best actually. It's a bit smaller and the magnitude of superstar performers may not be what some people had hoped - especially after being treated to the likes of Neil Young, Kendrick, Arcade Fire and LCD Soundsystem over the last couple of years (to name a few).

It's also important to keep in mind that Wayhome goes late, and their will undoubtedly be someone amazing on during anyone you may not want to see. And that's where the rest of the lineup comes in.

The thing about it is, it's actually STACKED. And we can prove it - and not just with a 'top 5' - because you need to be busy the whole time! Here are 21 things that make Wayhome an essential festival to check out:

21. Constantines

These guys are legends. Any chance you get to see Constantines - take it. Your life will be better.

20. Frank Ocean

We've all been waiting a long time for anything from Frank! And now, we get a headline slot that is sure to be life changing.

19. The Drums

All of their music is great, but we couldn't be more excited for this new stuff.

18. Darcys

Darcys are the best. One of the coolest Canadian bands out - you'd be crazy to miss out on them!

17. Colony House

Their uplifting rock magic is perfect for any summer night. This will be awesome.

16. Margaret Glaspy

One of our favorite new finds (for us) on this lineup, we will be front and center for this one!

15. Hundred Waters

They make some of the most fascinating, lush and beautiful music around - they will be perfect at Wayhome.

14. JAHKOY

Proving they thought of everything - including LOTS of super fresh R&B. Jahkoy is great!

13. Mura Masa

If you'd like to see into the future, post up at Mura Musa's stage. This will be huge.

12. Banks

 One of the most exceptional performers and creators of dark, modern pop music - Banks is some you absolutely cannot miss.

11. Charles Bradley

We have seen this guy change the weather before. Charles Bradley is the perfect addition to any outdoor festival lineup.

10. The Shins

After all these years we still haven't had the pleasure of seeing these guys live, thanks to Wayhome - we are about to fix that.

9. Jagwar Ma

We can't imagine a better vibe than Australia's trailblazing Jagwar Ma on a hot August afternoon. This is a great booking right here.

8. Phantogram

Between two incredible LPs AND the Big Grams project with Big Boi of Outkast, Phantogram have pretty much been on FIRE for a long time now.

7. Andy Shauf

One of the best albums of 2016, we should all be so lucky to see this brilliant artist play it live. Can't wait for this one!

6. Schoolboy Q

There's nothing to not love about Schoolboy Q. The man is a beast of an mc and an elite live performer.

5. Danny Brown

4. PUP

If there was one thing missing from last year - it was PUP.

3. Tanya Tagaq

The brilliant artist and Inuit throat singer, we are on the edge of our seats from Tanya Tagaq's performance.

2. Justice

We have our fingers crossed that this will be a late night show - Justice live is utter insanity.

1. Solange

Her album is beyond incredible, we have a feeling this performance will be one of our favorite things of 2017.

Preview: Danny Brown at the Phoenix 11/4

The new album from Danny Brown is so out there, that the irreverent Detroit MC decided to release it on Warp Records.  Where his previous releases 'XXX' and 'Old' came from Fool's Gold Records, after one listen to the new project this move will make perfect sense.  One thing that hasn't changed is the intensity of Danny Brown's live show.  He's bringing the 'Atrocity Exhibition' tour, along with special guests Maxo Kream and ZelooperZ to the Phoenix, one of Toronto's legendary venues...

Tickets are still available, but they sure won't last.  Get yours here and get your copy of 'Atrocity Exhibition' here!

VIDEO: Danny Brown 'When It Rain'

Today Danny Brown released his newest single 'When It Rains'.  It comes with the bizarre video, and the announcement that his upcoming album will be released on Warp.  The announcement came with this statement from Danny Brown himself:

 

“With the blessing of my Fools Gold family by my side, I'm excited to be working with Warp on new material. They're music fans to the same high degree I am and I'm looking forward to breaking some rules together.”
