    Visit World's End Press' Bizarre Club in NSFW-ish 'Drag Me Home' Video

    In October, World's End Press shared a low-key music video for "Reformation Age," a synth-powered bubbler from the Australian foursome's self-titled debut album. The clip complemented the disco track's yearning by shrouding lead singer John Parkinson in smoke, casting colored lights across his face, and tossing in a few kaleidoscope-view effects. Now, World's End Press have issued another video in support of their Tim Goldsworthy-produced LP, but the new short — for desperate, late-night prowler "Drag Me Home" — but the new short deals exclusively in freak-out, NSFW-skirting visuals.Want to see a dude masturbate with the Aussie flag draped over his head? Look no further. How about a contortionist in fishnets who uses her feet to pour ketchup? Oh, you'd prefer to see a thong-wearing woman with super long fingernails take selfies in her bedroom?

According to record label Arts & Crafts, the Broken Social Scene co-founder is filming a new music video and he's looking to cast real-life couples who are willing to get, ahem, "engaged in passionate and intimate sexual moments."It's not clear what track the clip is for, but the post on A&C's website promises the shoot will be a classy, respectable affair. "The video will be a visual documentary composed of artful photography," the announcement reads. "These images will be captured one couple at a time then intercut to create a visual montage that conceptualizes the sensuality of the song.""I'm looking for real couples to come make out on camera for the greater good of vulnerability," Drew pledges.

    Jamie xx Weaves Unreleased 'Sleep Sound' Into Four Tet, Future, and More for BBC Mix

    Jamie xx kicked off his tenure as one of BBC Radio 6 Music's 6 Mix Resident DJs on December 6, delivering a two-hour mix that ended with an unreleased solo track. Dubbed "Sleep Sound," the song leaked a few weeks ago and showed up on the xx member's recent Live at Night + Day Berlin mix. "The new song fits in well with Rounds-era Four Tet and Caribou's Daphni-teasing Swim," SPIN's Chris Martins observed back in November. "Zero-gravity harp flutters give way to an upbeat bounce, cut up soul vocals, and inventive percussion."Now the tune has resurfaced to cap off a mix featuring material by Future, Todd Edwards, Hyetal, and, of course, SPIN profile subjects the xx, among others. Stream the entire two-hour broadcast over at the BBC Radio 6 website.

    Embattled Ol' Dirty Bastard Documentary Now Available for Download

    A new documentary on the life and legacy of Ol' Dirty Bastard has been released online, after legal issues between the late rapper's estate and distribution company New Hollywood Entertainment have been resolved.As AllHipHop reports, the doc, titled Dirty: Platinum Edition, is directed by ODB's cousin, Raison Allah. Originally, the film was supposed to premiere on November 15 at the Brooklyn Academy of Music, as part of the launch party for the NuHo Online Film Festival, which is being billed as "the first revenue-sharing, full-length film festival distribution model for filmmakers." The AllHipHop-sponsored event at BAM was canceled, though, after Ol' Dirty Bastard's estate issued a cease-and-desist order.Since then, officials with the festival screened the flick for ODB's estate, including the late rapper's widow, Icelene Jones.

    Stream Nicolas Jaar's Hour-Long Mix Honoring John Lennon

    December 8 marked the 33rd anniversary of John Lennon's death at the hands of Mark David Chapman. In honor of the late Beatle, Nicolas Jaar has crafted an hour-long mix dedicated to Lennon's memory. Dubbed Our World, the new piece opens with audio from an interview Lennon did with broadcast legend Howard Cosell during a 1974 installment of Monday Night Football; the mix then transitions to the December 8, 1980 episode of MNF, when Cosell broke the news to the world that Lennon had been gunned down outside of his Manhattan apartment building, the Dakota. What follows is a meditative blend of darkly twinkling atmospherics, pitch-warped vocal clips, and shadowy electronics, all building to Lennon's own "Oh My Love."Stream the Our World mix below.
