JOE KICKASS-The Walk that Water EP

Joe Kickass’ latest EP feels a bit like Lyrics Born or Gift of Gab: Old school flow, intelligent lyrics, and beats that cross the border between early 1990s and the now.

Very good stuff–looking forward to hearing more from him in the future.

WEEKENDS ARE FOR SINGLES!: When the night is over and you want to come down edition…

A regular feature: Single songs and covers I’ve heard lately, usually submitted to me, that you need to get your ears on.  Pronto!

Tonight, a focus on the mellow and slow and sweet. Let’s start with a gal named Lemon, who has made a tight little tune…

Okay, this cut isn’t mellow in the same way as Lemon, but it’s slow for grimey rap. I swear Action Bronson is the second coming of Ghostface.

And speaking of slow-moving hip hop, just when I thought I’d heard enough covers of Kanye West’s Runaway, I heard this one. Fire.

Wilde Music covers Snow Patrol. I really like the complexity of the beats and breaks. It seems really simple until you really listen to it.

CZARFACE-Every Hero Needs a Villain


Okay, so there’s the MF DOOM factor. That right away makes this album a must-buy. Even if he only spits fire for a couple minutes.

But wait, there’s more. Czarface is Wu-Tang’s Inspectah Deck and the duo of 7L and Esoteric from Boston, Mass. Their first album hit in 2012, and was fantastic. So expectations are high here.

There’s tons of superhero references and samples—the kind of quick cuts and jokes that DOOM made famous a decade ago—and sometimes they just clutter the album and leave the reader wishing for more lyrics and less production. But that’s the exception. Overall, the album is packed with boasting, brash rap and tight beats. 7L knows his way around the boards. And Esoteric and Deck continue to issue some of the best work of their respective, impressive careers.

And if you buy the CD you get a comic book, tons of artwork (the CD pamphlet is nearly 80 pages long). It’s perfect for a summer that will include Ant-Man, Terminator and the Fantastic Four.

The Social Experiment’s entire debut album, Surf, is free on iTunes. Why should you care? Because it includes Chance the Rapper on vocals. It’s good. Not great, but good.

Chet Faker does some of his best Radiohead…..

It’s always good to support female rappers, especially when Danny Brown makes an appearance….

Husky’s new album, Rucker’s Hill, sounds a little bit like Simon and Garfunkel if they’d been indie rockers.

I Be Ghost is that cool atmospheric kinda hip hop…Ya dig?

Okay, and speaking of indie, hip-hop(ish) tunes, this is a KILLER Mash Up….
