clipping. have come up with another intense video, this time for the track “Back Up” from their EP Wriggle. If you haven’t heard the song yet, they’re teamed up with Signor Benedick The Moor and Antwon, which means it’s a mindfuck of sorts. You can check out the EP below via Amazon.com.
This is not the new face or look of pop, but rather the little acknowledged appearance of pop, if not one that people have denied. Looking at him, you might say “Nick Koenig definitely fits into his name”, which is why he makes and releases music as Hot Sugar. He just came out with an album-length EP called Man Made, featuring appearances from the likes of Heems, Open Mike Eagle, Big Baby Gandhi, KOOL AD, Antwon, and many others, and if you are a fany of them, you will be pleasantly surprised at what everyone has contributed here.
Tree House is the new street album from rapper Le1f, who may have walked or drove past a tree and said “this would make for a good cover, but it has to be evening.” Boom, and then it happened. What will also be happening is a tour beginning next week in support of Tree House, so head out if you can and have a good time at the Le1f show.

On other websites, all you’d have to rely on is the headline and hope for the best, but not here. The hope is that you’ll read the introduction and hopefully… eh, maybe you’re not reading the intro, but then again, how would you know about this tour that’s going to happen in November? All you want is the tour dates, correct? Well sure, but I still have to tell you a few things.
On the White Lung side you have Mish Way (vocals), Anne-Marie Vassiliou (drums), Grady Mackintosh (bass), and Kenneth William (guitar), and together they merge a nice blend of punk and pop. On the Antwon side you have Antwon, rapper man. 18 months after White Lung released their album Sorry (Deranged), they are still touring in support of it, but perhaps they’ll throw in some new songs as well.
Now that you know these things, you may have the tour dates.

While every other popular genre is releasing a 7″ single or EP as of late, hip-hop 45’s are still in the minority,and in truth have always been. This is why it’s good news that Antwon is stepping into the 45rpm arena with his new single on Suicide Squeeze Records. The record is “Dying In The Pussy” b/w “Life Is What You Make It”, and if one was to judge by titles alone, you can sense that “Dying In The Pussy” may be a bit hardcore but “Life Is What You Make It”? A summer jam for those who desire the goods, with a pinch of Cali flavor. The picture sleeve looks like this.
I know you want to hear the A-side, the title is making you curious, right? Here it is.
Antwon also has two concerts planned: one in northern Cali, the other in the south. Catch them both like Pokemon:
August 25… Los Angeles, CA (FYF Fest)
October 19… San Francisco, CA (Treasure Island Music Festival)
The “Dying In The Pussy” 7″ can be ordered directly from Suicide Squeeze.
Isaiah Toothtaker is giving his fans the goods in the form of Sea Punk Funk, an 8-song album that also features Murs, Western Tink, ShowYouSuck, and Antwon helping him and producer Sixtoo out. This one is for free, so have at it.
The Roots had made the claim to creating the longest posse cut ever, but it seems they have been beaten. The video is Isaiah Toothtaker‘s verse from the 22-minute track, because apparently, they were not able to get everyone together to create the video, but maybe it will become a “short film” in the making.
