Meow the Jewels is actually happening: the much anticipated remix album of Run the Jewels’ Run the Jewels 2 (which came in at #5 on Freshly Squeezed’s 20 Best Albums of 2014) made some progress this week as El-P shared a number of Instagram videos of the beginning of a Lil Bub-featuring remix of “Jeopardy.” It’s sounding good so far, but there’s still a lot of work to be done. “Oh my god what am I doing with my life,” writes El-P.
Also, watch their recent performance for La Blogothèque in Paris here.
Update: Run the Jewels have also shared the video for Run the Jewels 2 highlight “Lie, Cheat, Steal.” Watch below.
Also, watch a brand new interactive documentary on the pair over at the BBC, which features interviews and concert footage from their sold-out show at London landmark venue Koko.
Caribou has been busy since Our Love was named Freshly Squeezed’s best album of 2014. He’s shared a 1,000-song mixtape, a live album with the Caribou Vibration Ensemble featuring Four Tet, James Holden, and more, a new mix for BBC’s Radio 6 Mix, the full set video from his performance at Pitchfork Musical Festival Paris, as well as announced a world tour which includes two back-to-back shows at Vancouver’s Commodore Ballroom on March 5.
