Earl Sweatshirt – Unreleased Tracks

November 29, 2011


So after Tyler, The Creator pulled his totally hilarious ‘Earl’s back’ prank last week, there was more than a little excitement about the impending return of Odd Future’s most talented MC. As any OF fan will have realised, Earl Sweatshirt‘s skills are waaay beyond his years, and the kid holds a ridiculous amount of potential. I’m […]

Blue Sky Black Death – ‘Late Night Cinema’

November 28, 2011


This is the best instrumental hip-hop I have ever heard.  Not that I have listened to all that much, but the production on this album is incredible.  I actually found this while chilling on TurnTableFM (sweet website if you haven’t checked it out) and it has quickly become a favourite of mine over the past […]

The Promise Ring – ‘Nothing Feels Good’

November 27, 2011


As an incredibly underwhelming celebration of Milwaukee’s The Promise Ring reuniting, i’ve decided to post my favourite record of theirs.  If you haven’t heard these guys, The Promise Ring are basically one of the essential Midwest emo bands of the 90’s, and  inspired a lot of the stuff I, and many other rad dudes, listen […]

MIXTAPE: ‘Low For Life’ (An Introduction to Vilecore)

November 26, 2011


“STARING AT YOUR ZITS IN THE MIRROR FOR AN HOUR STRAIGHT AND CRYING WHILE STONE SOBER” There are times in everyone’s existence when work/ your shitty love life/the general tediousness that is the routine has got you down. Food has no taste, you haven’t washed your jeans for weeks and you spend your days staring, […]

Burning Love – ‘Don’t Ever Change’ 7″

November 22, 2011


I checked Burning Love out on a whim some time ago and I’m extremely glad I did: this, their Don’t Ever Change 7″ pretty much rules. This particular release, which came out last year, features two blistering, fun as hell cuts of no-nonsense hardcore, exactly what the doctor ordered. Bullshit-free and without pretense, I particularly like […]

Kid Kilowatt – ‘Guitar Method’

November 20, 2011


I don’t understand how this band is as unknown as it is.  They were originally called ‘Ester Of Wood Rosin’, and released some demos under this name I believe (which i will try and find ASAP), and they were actually formed ‘during a low point in Cave In’, according to their LastFM (members included Adam […]

Agoraphobic Nosebleed – ‘Make a Joyful Noise’

November 18, 2011


It’s not even December yet, but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t start to get excited; it is, after all, a pretty darned magical time of year. And what better way to soundtrack decorating the tree, eating candy canes and wrapping presents than with some Agoraphobic Nosebleed? The fact that this, 11 Christmas-themed ANb songs, even […]
