Archive for the ‘gay pride’ tag
Holopaw teamed up with Ape School (former Paw member Michael Johnson) for a remix of the celebrated song “Dirty Boots (He Don’t).” VICE premiered the (viral) video for “Dirty Boots” earlier this year and have followed-up by premiering the Apeschooled remix of the same track.
“Misra Records has a history of dropping hot new shit to celebrate Pride Month. Exactly one year ago, the label released a split pink vinyl with indie rockers Holopaw and Sleeping States. This time around, in the spirit of rainbow flags, tiny speedos, strap-ons, and everything else that is holy, they’re dropping a remix of Holopaw’s ‘Dirty Boots (He Don’t)’ by Michael Johnson (Ape School and former Holopaw member). You remember “Dirty Boots (He Don’t)”? We premiered the music video right here on VICE.com. That video was so hot, even the straight dudes in the office were popping biker-induced boners. Michael’s remix of the original track, however, ups the ante with a smooth elixir of the drum machine and funky bass that gets the blood pumping to all the right places. Whether you’re gay, straight, bisexual, or even if you just love yourself (I see you, asexuals!) give the remix a listen and wave that sexually ambiguous flag proudly.”
Out Magazine–the highest circulating gay monthly publication in the United States–announced Sleeping States / Holopaw Old vs. New EP b/w Through ‘Til The Morning EP today. In addition, they highlighted Sleeping States’ fabulous “Planning My Escape.”
