    News item o' the day: El-P blogs/previews new tracks

    I'll Sleep When You're Dead, El-P's follow-up to the epic Fantastic Damage, has long been my most anticipated album of 2006. Problem is I'm still not sure it's even coming out this year. Information has been scarce and midway through Septemer, there's still no release date in sight. Plus, El Producto has been in his usual workaholic mode, producing for Mr. Lif and Cannibal Ox, heading up Def Jux, and remixing everyone from Nine Inch Nails to Hot Hot Heat to TV On The Radio.

    But things have taken an encouraging turn of late. El-P has begun blogging about the last stages of his sophomore record on a page he likes to call I'll Sleep When You're Dead. Though there's still no release date, the fact that it's near-finished should be some relief to diehard Jukies. And in the meantime, we get the fun prospect of seeing El-P the blogger. His writing so far has been loopy, messy, cryptic and raw, not unlike the contents of his formidable catalogue. And wait, that's not all...

    On El's MySpace page, he's streaming some worthy new shit: "Everything Must Go" and the instrumental to "Drive," both of which are expected to appear on ISWYD, plus "Take Hold Fire," his hot guest spot on Mr. Lif's Mo Mega and his aforementioned NIN remix for "Only." At least now we know what El-P's doing when he's not sleeping.

    * MP3: "We Can Build You" - Techno Animal (w. El-P and Vast Aire) from The Brotherhood of the Bomb [Buy it]
    * MP3: "Dead Weathermen" - El-P (with Cage, Camu Tao, Copywrite and Vast Aire) from Fandam Plus [Buy it]
