Hortlax Cobra is the nom de plume — or, rather, nom de dance project — of John Eriksson from Peter Bjorn and John. (This is not to be confused with Smile, the new side project from Peter Bjorn and John’s Björn Yttling, of course.) The album, which debuted back in June was released on Ingrid, a record label formed by Peter Bjorn and John, Lykke Li, Miike Snow and other noted Swedish artists. As Hortlax Cobra, Eriksson delves deep in to the world of dance music, but stops just shy of they hardened ear-splitting EDM of some of his other dance world peers. Instead, Hortlax Cobra produces music that spans genres, building melodies layer by later into a cresting wave of beats that just makes you want to move.

His latest single “Wasteland” is ma Eriksson offered up this description of the songwriting and video-making process: “The track “Wasteland” was the last song I recorded for the Night Shift album. The record was almost finished but I needed one more song with vocals on it and this time I wanted to try to write a good lyric. Since I’m Swedish I’m not totally sure that I succeeded but I put a lot of effort in it. I wanted to capture the powerlessness a lot of people feel when they understand that the future of our world is in the hands of a very small group of very rich people. And after spending far too much of my own money on a cobra mask and a ventriloquist doll I needed to find someone who could make a cheap video for the track. So I asked a completely broke friend of mine if he could do it. My friend has managed to live outside the system for like 15 years so he was definitely the right person to make a video for this song.”

It’s been (Barenaked Ladies style) seven years since Comedy Bang! Bang! premiered on Southern California’s Indie 103 radio station as a music and variety show, then known as Comedy Death-Ray. And in those seven years, host Scott Aukerman has evolved the radio show into a podcast, a TV series, and a comedy mainstay for fans of surreal, offbeat humor. To celebrate the special occasion, Scott invited fan favorites Jason Mantzoukas, Horatio Sanz and Paul F. Tompkins, as well as a slew of popular characters and segments, to CB!B!’s 7th Anniversary Show.

Click here to listen to the 7th anniversary show on Earwolf. And just a reminder, Comedy Bang! Bang! returns to IFC for a fifth season on June 3rd with back-to-back episodes on Fridays at 11P ET/PT and 11:30P ET/PT. Season Five will feature “Weird Al” Yankovic as the new bandleader and a bevy of guests like Kevin Bacon, Kristen Schaal, Tony Hale, Aubrey Plaza, T-Pain, and more.

That 70s Show Cast Reunion

Catch That '70s Show Mondays & Tuesdays starting at 6P on IFC.

The stars of That ’70s Show had their own throwback reunion as Fez, Jackie, Kelso, Donna, and Hyde recently got back together for a candid on-set photo. Posted to Laura Prepon‘s Instagram account, actors Wilmer Valderrama, Mila Kunis, Ashton Kutcher, Danny Masterson, and Prepon posed on the set of Netflix’s The Ranch — which stars Kutcher and Masterson as brothers who manage their family ranch. Older and wiser but no less striking, the cast seems to have weathered the ’80s (and the ’00s) very well.

Keeping this from being a complete That ’70s Show reunion is Topher Grace’s absence, but this photo works as a reunion of the cast from the post-Eric final season. With The Ranch renewed for a second season, we could be seeing more ’70s reunion moments. Maybe Tommy Chong will stop by?
