The Audible Doctor released an EP earlier this week and you can have a listen to it in full right here, in the form of Can’t Keep The People Waiting. It’s eight songs of newness featuring the likes of Guilty Simpson, Consequence, Astro, Hassaan Mackey, John Robinson, and Bumpy Knuckles. Listen to it and if it grooves with you, you may buy it via iTunes.

Will EQ is gearing up to release a new album called Social Insecurity 1.5: Rise Of The Machine and for “Dreamers” he worked with producer Psyconautz (no relation to Psychonauts) to display his combination of singing and rapping, and he flows equally and nicely, the emphasis is balanced nicely.
Their press release calls them “psychedelic alt-rock-grunge-pop weirdos” but I will simply call them Allusondrugs, a group from West Yorkshire, England. They’re trying to make a name for themselves and they’re hoping that this song will the bridge between them and you, the new listener. Their song is called “Am I Weird?”, a bit funny since the press release calls themselves but are they truly weird or is that a sense of humor to break the ice and discover who and what they really are? Find out for yourself. If the video moves you and you want to take the song with you on your travels, there is a free MP3 that awaits if you head here.
Sachee SB apparently released a “2 song EP” but an EP doesn’t consist of two songs unless they are longer than 10 minutes. Nonetheless, format preferences aside, Sachee made a video back in Harlem (he now lives in Rochester, New York) to show where he came from, as a way to let people know where he’s headed, with his song “Twenty 47”.
I’m not sure what rapper Scarface will think about hearing about a guy named Scarf-ACE coming out with his own music and career, but perhaps if needed, Scarf-ACE can have Scarface’s old name Akshen and become Axsh-N. Until then, let’s check out Scarf-ACE and a song that welcomes Ralph V. into the fold with “Pesos”, which both are hoping to make in bucketloads.
If you need a house song to make you dance, workout, or just make the day move a little faster, you’ll want to check out the Paleface remix of “Bassline Rudeboy Punk” by Punkture, which has no punk or anything distinctly reggae but it will make you dance like those with pale faces. Or something like that. House this.
Baby Blak has a new song he wants to lay on everyone called “The Bottom Line”, with help from Swedish producers Max I Million and DJ Devastate. The former offers a remix of the song while the latter produced the original cut. You may have both here.
If you’re unfamiliar with Derek Minor, here’s a chance to become familiar. He has released one album and is preparing to release a second, this one called Empire. He just made a video for a song produced by Dirty Rice called “Who You Know” and if you didn’t know about Minor, now you know, you know?
This is a genre I’m unfamiliar with: “blues-grunge”. It’s how Sydney-based Thyrsday may describe their music, and you’ll be able to hear more on December 15th when they release their debut EP Touché. At the moment, you can have a slice of their blues-grunge by listening to “Keeper” and you may find it to be a keeper too.
