Beastie Boys: More From “The Mix-Up”

Published in Blog Archive, Culture Bully. Tags: .

Thought I’d take a second peak back at the Beastie Boys‘ site for the day and low and behold everything in the world has changed; well, not everything – but there’s a fresh video of the band in studio recording “Off The Grid.” It is Caucasi-funk at its peak: a guitar that sticks its head out of the car door while doing about 65 mph down the highway leaving it just inches from shred (a funky shred, but a shred nonetheless), organ that sounds more organic than a bagel from that hippie bistro down the street from your aunt’s place called “Che Organique,” and a rhythm that simply drops for days. This is why I am amped in anticipation for The Mix-Up, what’s your excuse?
