Live from ??? Maine
This is how you turn a kitchen into a recording studio…
Greetings on this TGIF and all that jazz, your humble narrator is coming to you live from somewhere maine (approx 50 mi north of Portland, that’s all I know) where last night I recorded a podcast with the long time homie Brzowski in prep for his new album A Fitful Sleep, which you can cop on Milled Pavement Records on 7/26 (Cop Dat, Cop Dat!). Thanks to the swell woman behind the counter at the Comfort Inn I am coming to you live to bring you some exciting stuff from the bredren at Fake Four Inc. Records. Additionally, I’ll be throwing in a Kay the Aquanaut Remix I did recently and a HILAROUS video I stumbled upon thanks again to my always-hipper-than-me sister, Rikki. Let’s kick this weekend off right by half assing our jobs for the rest of the day and being bombed by 6pm…
Fake Four Friday: Progress Trap
This is a new recurring column I will be doing to highlight what I consider to be one of the best newer (less than 5 years) indie Hip-Hop (or otherwise) labels in recent memory Fake Four Inc. This week’s submission come from the newest album by Sole & The Skyrider Band that will drop on tuesday 7/19 (cop that, cop that!). This track has seen a TON of love on the Strange Famous Soundcloud page (it features Sage Francis) and has been posted all over the usual promo suspects (Twitter, FB, StuffInc, YourMom.com, maybe even Google+…), but I have just been sooooo impressed with the new LP Hello Cruel World that I had to throw in my 2 cents. Below you can listen to the stream and download for FREE, which I think is a limited time thing, so get it while the getting is good…Enjoy!
Sole ft. Bleubird and K-The-I??? – Hustle Hard (Ace Hood Remix)
Off the Nuclear Winter Vol. 2 mixtape which has been dubbed by the man Sole himself as ‘Rap as Journalism’ you have a great new track and video to boot. All songs off the mixtape have been made into videos actually so it’s worth a look when you are on your way to buy a copy of Hello Cruel World. You can find out more about Nuclear Winter Vol 2 #Deathpanel Unveiled at Sole’s site HERE…
Kay The Aquanaut ft. Sole – Kill You (HALO Remix)
Remix I did recently of one of my favorite tracks off Kay The Aquanaut’s new album Waterloo on Circle Into Square for the Kill You Remix Contest (still waiting on the official results…) and it came out kinda dope. Enjoy!
Random Video Pick…
Bom, Bom, Bom, Bom…for Fieevve Hours Straaiiight.
