Here is an update on one of my favorite artists. Father John Misty is back, about to release a new album next year. He recently performed on Letterman, in typical obscure fashion. Per usual, FJM’s live performances are something to witness; his humor is dark, strange, and hilarious. I believe his lyrical cynicism is one not be rivaled. Father John Misty tells it how it is without using easy euphemisms and industry bullshit. I thoroughly enjoy his artistry, his last album (Fear Fun), and the idea that he is putting out new material.
Run The Jewels 2 is the best early Christmas present I have ever received. While partying at the BroHaus last night I was put on to this devastating album. Killer Mike and El-P have done it again, yeap. Here they offer examples of crushing beats, über cranial lyrics, and the most unexpected and interesting guest spots of right now. And what do we pay for it? Run The Jewels 2 is absolutely free (if you want it to be). I would say more, but just listen…
Hey all you hip hop/local music fans. I’ve heard tell of a Halloween themed mini-festival taking place at Honey (NE), Thursday, Oct 23rd. Now I know it’s that time of year when the witching hour takes full effect, but fear not! Come out and celebrate with local artists, music, and some booze. Perchance the headless horseman will ride again. It’s party time, and you don’t want to miss out (avoid FOMO). There will be a wide variety of up-and-coming local acts, and maybe even a scary storytelling contest. Wear a costume, bring a friend, listen to some music, and have a few drinks- you earned it. I mean, You Only Live Once… Have some fun before it’s Christmastime; autumn is for hell raising and party making, not going to bed early.
Check out the details below:

89.3 The Current in Minneapolis, has been banging this hit since about mid-summer. I turn my radio up when it comes on. Milky Chance is essentially great at creating a catchy and lazed sound. I appreciate the pureness of the guitar, the simplicity of the beat, and the touching vocals- the main hook. I look forward to hearing more from Milky Chance (Vote for Milky Chance as “Best German Act” at MTV EMA.). Enjoy.
