VIDEO: Black Moth Super Rainbow’s “Hairspray Heart”

When he speaks of Cobra Juicy, you know what he’s talking about right? Right?
Well, you don’t even know who “he” is and in truth, am I really referring to anyone? No.

Nonetheless, “Hairspray Heart” is the brand new video from Black Moth Super Rainbow, and it is truly an image fest, as much as it is a sonic fest. Don’t believe me? C’mon, you should. Press play.

FREE MP3 DL:: TwoineyLo’s “Ghetto Poetry”

TwoineyLo photo TwoineyLo_old_zps6e5b6487.jpg
At the age of 16, Baltimore’s TwoineyLo is about to let himself be known in the vast world of hip-hop, as a means to separate himself from the crap that’s out there. Produced by Celsoa, if “Ghetto Poetry” is a sign of the hip-hop that not only needs to be heard, but also desires to be created, then I hope this is a sign of what’s bubbling under.

The audio can be heard through YouTube and if you like what you hear, download it for free via Hulkshare.

SOME STUFFS: Native plan tour and new album release

SOME STUFFS: Gatekeeper’s Aaron Davis Ross releases solo album as ADR

ADR photo ADR_old_zpsa5afe9e8.jpg
Aaron Davis Ross is a member of Gatekeeper, but he’s trying out the solo route with his debut album as ADR. He has already prepared the album, to be released on Hippos In Tanks on April 16th, called Chunky Monkey. What does it sound like? The press release calls it “phazer phunk” but I think it’s a lot more. It’s very much of the electronic sounds of the mid-90’s as it is a modern sound, which means it can be called timeless. Like Goldie? Possible, but ADR is his own man, and this is his own music. Have a listen to one of the tracks, called “Slush Fund”.

VIDEO: Binary’s “You Need The Blue Key”

Somewhere in space, this could all be happening right now, and right now is the time for Binary, who share their new video for the song “You Need The Blue Key”. After listening to this, slice up your abdomen and pray to the overlords. Then again… maybe that’s not a good idea. Better idea: listen to the song and watch the video again. You can do it.

AUDIO: Feeding People’s “Big Mother”

Feeding People photo FeedingSong_old_zps4b70299f.jpg
Island Universe is the title of Feeding People’s new album, due out February 5th on Innovative Leisure Records, but you can listen to one of the tracks now. RIGHT NOW, I SAID!!! They are not allowing anyone to embed the Soundcloud player on their websites, so you’ll have to click here for a listen. Apologies, but it will be worth the extra link.
