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

VIDEO: True Neutral Crew’s “Live”

You may have enjoyed True Neutral Crew’s music but have been curious about what they’re like in a live setting. Here’s the perfect way to find out, a 20-minute short film that is the group displaying themselves on stage in a way that is sure to bring you and everyone else to see them when they play near you. The people you’ll see and hear in this include Margot Padilla (I.E.), Signor Benedict The Moor, and Daveed Diggs of clipping., all of which represent the hip-hop perspective of the group. The musical creations are made by Brian Kinsman, Boo Hiss, and tik///tik. Now that you know, get to know them a bit more.

VIDEO: clipping.’s “Inside Out”

With clipping. now signed to Sub Pop, their music videos are getting more weirder, which is great. “Inside Out” is proof of the weirdness, you can only expect things in the future to become more (add your own unique word here).

The group have a lot of shows coming up for the next few months, head out and celebrate the clipping. experience.

FREE DL: Signor Benedick The Moor’s “A2onality”
This is something I’ve always said about hip-hop, and really all kinds of music: when everyone is doing the same thing over and
over, why be like everyone else? Signor Benedick The Moor is something who isn’t like everyone else and even if you do find something that’s a little similar, there’s something that makes him left of center, if not demented. His new song is called “A2onality”, so be like him and make yourself a bowl of cereal, be it with regular milk, almond milk, coconut milk, rice milk, goat milk, your own nipple milk, whatever you want, then kick back and listen to this joint. Or jawn, depending on your location.

REVIEW: True Neutral Crew’s “#POPPUNK”

 photo TrueNeutralPP_cover_zpsb4164871.jpg The adventures continue once again with True Neutral Crew, who have released a nice 7-song EP called #POPPUNK, which could sound like a mixture of pop and punk but because you know what to expect from these guys, you know you’re not going to expect that at all.

There’s different styles in each song, one track might sound like the guy from clipping. decided to enter the studio or basement and rhyme (which makes sense, considering Daveed Diggs is in a song or so). Another time, you’ll hear a female presence and realize that’s that Margot Padilla of I.E., or hear another guy rap and doodle and know it’s not only more, it’s Signor Benedick The Moor. It feels like an open house but you also know what True Neutral Crew are born to do, not to do, as well as undo. #POPPUNK is music for those who don’t care if a library book is overdue.

VIDEO: Signor Benedick The Moor’s “H8 Everybody (Enter The Black Prince)”

The Moor known as Signor Benedick has something new to tantalize your mind and ears, this one titled “H8 Everybody (Enter The Black Prince)”, which means he is about to do this with deliberate intentions. This guy is easily one of the best rappers we’ve had in awhile, listen very closely and see what he offers.

VIDEO: Signor Benedick The Moor’s “.//End”

Signor Benedick The Moor’s released his El Negro album last year but if you don’t have it or are unfamiliar with it, maybe this song will get you to check it out. It’s for the song “.//End”, so let the vibes flow through.

The rapper has released a new EP in 2014 called sbthemoor, which you can stream and listen to via Bandcamp.

SOME STUFFS: Black Pus, True Neutral, Viper Venom donate songs for charity album put together to help abolish debt

What does evil mean? Is evil an easy path towards death and if so, what to make of artists like Miles Davis and Black Sabbath who called their albums Live Evil? Maybe there is no connection, but artists like Black Pus, True Neutral Crew, Signor Benedick The Moor, diss1, Sissy Cobb, ParallaxScroll, Dreamcrusher, and more have contributed a song to a new Deathbomb Arc compilation album called EVIL. All contributors were asked to simply do a song about evil, in whatever way they felt like doing. All proceeds from the sales of this album will be donated to Rolling Jubilee, an anti-debt charity.
