Dropdead - 1st LP

Song after song go by at a blistering pace, punishing you powerviolently. Nice crossover kind of style, keeping it pretty raw with some of that crust influence showing a bit, but really its just pure aggression recorded to tape.

1st LP

Iceage - New Brigade

Danish band who have just released this new lp.

Great post-punk with subtle hooks and a bit of noisy-ness to it. Very promising stuff.

Odd Future Wolf Gang Kill Them All

I guess it's about time I step aboard the hype train with these guys.

If you haven't heard anything at all about Odd Future, and you have an internet connection, I don't know where the hell you have been. A group of teenagers from LA, who love to skate and make music, and also happen to release all of that music for free. Imagine a young Wu-Tang releasing all of their music online for free. These guys are basically the definition of "bloggable".

Anyways, shits all good, and all swag. Personal favourite is the leader, Tyler, The Creator, who has a new album coming out in April. Have a look at this new track below, then get all of this shit for free, guilt free.

Tyler, The Creator - Bastard

MellowHype - BlackenedWhite
MellowHype - Yellowhite

Earl Sweatshirt - Earl

Domo Genesis - Rolling Papers

Mike G - Ali

Deltron 3030 - Deltron 3030

...and some of Del's best work is on this amazing collaboration with Dan Nakamura and DJ Kid Koala. Damon Albarn makes an appearance on the album as well, perhaps explaining why the three of these guys all had a hand in the Gorillaz self-titled album.

This is one of those moments were a group works exceedingly well together, and when you combine that chemistry and talent with a ridiculous futuristic concept about corporations ruling the world, you really can't go wrong.

Del tha Funkee Homosapien

It's strange, and also a little sad, that the reason most people know this hugely talented emcee is essentially from his appearance in a pop song (or also as being Ice Cube's cousin, though you wouldn't guess it from style). Well, I guess Gorillaz aren't your usual pop outfit, and that's why Del works so well with them, but his appearance in the hit single "Clint Eastwood" brought him a lot of attention.

So it's a shame that even though he was brought to mainstream attention, he never really got the recognition he deserved as a solo artist. Del has an amazing flow, and one hell of a recognisable voice. His delivery makes you shut up and listen. His first 4 albums through the 90's to the start of the 2000's are all solid, though he peaks on Both Sides of the Brain.

Deathprod - Morals and Dogma

Exceptionally well done. Dark soundscapes and noises which subtly envelope you.

Must hear.

K. - Sana Sana

Take dälek, but shift the emphasis more onto the cold industrial beats, with more noise than shoegaze, and you have some idea of what this sounds like.

Or, why don't you just listen to the stream of this new album and really find out how it sounds.
