Due out on June 3rd is a new album by Young Moon called Colt and as Western Vinyl (the label) gears up to sell and promote it, they are starting by passing a long a chance for you to hear the title track, so press play right now and enjoy.
If you are in San Francisco at the top of the summer season, the band will have a record release party with Eternal Drag and Kokomo-hum at The Chapel, so show some support.
The last edition of The Listening Experience podcast explores the music of Prince in a not-so-usual way. Prince was someone who utilized audio tape manipulation to where it would become one of its trademarks. You’d hear his voice sped up in a number of ways or even a guitar solo and sometimes you’d hear him at a much lower octave than normal. What I do here is adjust some of those songs so you will hear how he originally recorded them before it was adjusted for release.
This also marks the return of my podcast at a 90 minute duration or in this case, 93.
Rackateering is the new street album hosted by DJ Kay Slay made by Haddy Racks. Now check out “Fully Loaded Clip” and if it reminds you of something you’ve heard before, good, you know what he’s doing and why.
I’ll Forget 17
(Partisan) is an album by Eddie Johnston released last month but don’t look specifically for an Eddie Johnston release: get familiar with him under the moniker Lontalius. Don’t ask, just understand this. Like Sherman Hemsley, he has made a song called “Kick In The Head” and now he’d like to present the video for your eye hole. The album can be purchased below via Amazon.com
Not the 1s is the name of the band who will be releasing an album on June 10th called Everybody’s Rappin’ but if everyone is rapping, why would you want to specifically listen to these guys? I think once you check them out with “To Be Gamed On”, you might say “well hey, they definitely aren’t like everybody else.” Everybody’s Rappin’ will be released by Gold Robot Records and you can download this song right now, while supplies last.
(Arrowhawk) is the new album by Brooklyn trio Bambara and they’ve made a nice video for one of its songs, called “All The Ugly Things” but are there actually things that are ugly in the video? Beauty, as well as ugliness, is in the eye and mind of the beholder but regardless of how you think they (or someone in the video) look, how about the music? That’s the main focus.
Directed by DISTRACTOR (all capital letters, apparently), Tomorrows Tulips present a nice and delicate tune called “Walk Away” but they don’t want you to walk away from the song and not feel a thing. The song is from their latest EP on Burger Records called iNdy rock royalty comb
, which you can check out below from Amazon.com.
New visual means of entertainment for you from the one and only Young Freq. The song is taken from his Road To Perfection 2 and yet he’s getting ready to release another street album called S.O.L.I.D. but until then, find out what it means to be “Self Made”.
Mic Capes is another rapper out of Portland, Oregon who wants to let everyone know what he and his city is all about. He represents a section of Portland towards the northwest section called St. Johns and Mic Capes is all about precision, as you will see and hear in “No More” but fear not, he will have more eventually.
For All Kings
