A Moment’s Worth, Start Where You Are.
Horrible album cover. Good band. Good power pop.

I also like the new Rural Alberta Advantage single, North Star.
But the real star of this post is . . .
. . . In the hip hop department, we got the great MC Serch (3d Bass Fans, let me hear you!) presenting the newest Meshuguna rapper phenomenon, Sneakas. It tries a little too hard at spots, but it’s a solid mixtapes with some very good beats, tight verses, and even a few laugh-at-loud moments. The best is the single, “Hebonics 101”, a take on the legendary Big L’s “Ebonics“. He doesn’t rap to make a change to be a prophet, he raps to make change to make a profit. This one is growing on me more with each listen. And it’s free. What a mensch!
And speaking of rap music for free, Freeicecream.net can always be counted on for some cool, off-the-wall hip hop. They’ve dropped a single from Kats’ upcoming “You Owe Me $5” (presumably named after the price on bandcamp that you won’t pay after you download it for free).
But you can also find, on their site, their latest pirate project. This time, they jack beats from The Pixies and have a party on top of them. I just copped it (for free, of course), and can’t wait to hear it. I still have their Bohemian Rap CD project and “Flaming Clipse,” both of which are fresh as hell. I love this internet label, so you should too.
Tic Tic Boom, Reasons & Rhymes.
Slightly (but not much) better album cover than A Moments Worth. Slightly better power pop. Reminds me of Blondie a little bit.
Fun album to listen to–good for a party, or if you’re making out with a Freshman. Not that I speak from experience, of course. I’m just assumin’.
