After this weekend’s drunken barbeque shenanigans and debauchery—where I was lucky enough to hear some tracks off of Homeless and Big Cats new album The Polar Bear Rug, I thought I would shamelessly plug their upcoming local event, and promote some actual go-getters in the wonderful city of Minneapolis.
So, here it is: Coming to Icehouse, Saturday, August 1st, is Homeless and Big Cats record release party! (Facebook Event Page)
Now, I would strongly advise you go, because from what I’ve heard so far on The Polar Bear Rug (which features: P.O.S., Toki Wright, Mally, Eric Mayson, and Lydia Liza), these songs would be great to see performed live.
This will be an exciting event, one not to be missed. Also, in case you can’t make the performance, a person can acquire the album free here through these nifty sites:
Yeap, get it and go! Have a fun day.
New song from Prof off of his “Liability” album, set to be out soon on Rhymesayers Entertainment (Sept. 7th, 2015). No one reads articles anymore, so just watch the fucking video. Of course I wouldn’t post content unless I thought it was impressive; Prof’s rhyme is developing immensely, plus he brings it home with his soulful voice, and Tech N9ne is involved. Yes, you must listen. You can form your own opinion about it, but mine is positive; this has me excited and it sounds honed. Good news: New Prof.
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…
