Rapper L.E.O. has been around for a few years and each time he drops something new, he wants to prove a point. One of those points may be that he is a damn good rapper and deserves to be heard. Case in point: his new EP, W.I.N. Vol. 2: Left Out Stranded Everywhere. The Queens MC has made a follow up to his Whatever Is Necessary project and this one is free of charge. It features a bit of help from Hellspawn Darkness, Carnage, Mrs. Raic, and The Fallout Shelter, find out why he calls himself Love Equals Omnipotence and have a listen to this.
Lots of people in this song by R.F.C., which focuses on member Smoke DZA in a remix of “Errthang Valid”, which also features Cam’ron and A$AP Rocky back to back like a Snack Pack in a metal can, you know? This will be on R.F.C.’s forthcoming album The Outsiders.
“Murderer” sounds like something that is opposite of what the title suggests, although the vocals may remind people of Trent Reznor or something along those lines, thus bringing together a bit of good and evil. This is Megafortress, the nom de plume for Bill Gillim of Brooklyn, and the song will make it out on the Driftless Recordings album Believer due out on the 20th of November. Vinyl pressings can be pre-ordered from DriftlessRecordings.com.
A collection of punk, hardcore, and grindcore bands from the midwest assembled during a very cold season last year and came up with a set of songs they agreed to release as a 7″ single. It’s simply called the Bitter Cold Compilation. The record can be ordered from Diseased Audio while the digital files are through Bandcamp above. If you want your songs fast, loud, raunchy, quick and to the point, you’ll love these songs.
A rough side of music can be heard in The Keyhole, a new album by Breathing Problem. Those who are in tune with power electronica, dark ambient, or industrial will find this quite good. 14 new songs on here, a cassette pressing of this is in the works but for now you can download the full album for free or utilize the “name your price” option.
A micro-street album, is what what they’re calling it? Anyway, D.Prince came out with a micro-street EP earlier this month called The Fedora Tape and he already has another EP due out next week. It’s called Black Sinatra and you’re able to have a listen to the title track from it right now.
A new song by J-Live should logically make news, but in this vast world within the social media, some of the best music out there could be ignored but I want people to know about it. His new song is called “I Am A Man (American Justice)”, a statement that should be heard and examined, perhaps you can relate to it. The song is available in three different mixes for your listening and/or DJ’ing pleasures, and while the downloads are for free, consider choosing the “name your price” option and place a few digital bills his way.
Flâneur produced this soon-to-be fantastic song from Ralph V. but you don’t have to wait until the soon-to-be moment happens, make it work for you now. It’s called “Run & Gun”, make it work.

Some of these tracks were released as B-sides, others go back to their days at Sub Pop. My favorite track, “HIV Baby”, is from the Sub Pop 45 release of “Room A Thounsand Years Wide”. A major highlight on this will be a new song produced by Jack Endino called “Storm”, the first time he has worked with them in 24 years. Echo Of Miles: Scattered Tracks Across The Path will be released on November 24th, and can be pre-ordered below from Amazon.
