FEATURE: Brazilian DIY punk-rocker Moah shares video from self-produced EP’s lead single, ‘Alerta’

Posted on May 26, 2016 at 6:13pm 0 Comments

In São Paulo, Brazilian musician Moah released his first EP "Desivo" alongside a music video and a zine that explains the production of his music—a full-out package. Having done stints with the underground bands No More Lies and Life To Live, São Paulo, the 25 years-old launched into a solo career, as well as managing other projects.



The EP "Desvio", with four songs, crosses reflections on social and political crises with existential questions. Influenced by the…

NEW MUSIC: DC-Based G.U.M.P. (Give Us More Power) Blends Post-Rock an Hip-Hop On 'Unusual' #SoundCheck

Posted on May 26, 2016 at 5:50pm 0 Comments

With a backing band that slides seamlessly between spaced-out jazzy jams and a heavy chorus, DC-based G.U.M.P. may be the first hip-hop group to seriously blend post-rock into their music. Lead vocalist Uno Hype's flow is halfway between sung and rapped so when he kicks in for that 2nd verse, it hits like a ton of bricks. On their latest single, “Unusual,” the band takes a page from Yasiin Bey's massively underrated Black Jack Johnson for a song about a dissolving…

NEW MUSIC: South London singer/songwriter Jorja Smith releases summertime-ready ambient-soul track ‘Where Did I Go?“

Posted on May 26, 2016 at 4:53pm 0 Comments

I’ve been waiting for new music from South London singer/songwriter Jorja Smith for a few months now and I’m quite pleased to say that her newest track ‘Where Did I Go?’ is a worthy follow up to the stellar ‘Blue Lights’ and 'A Prince'. ‘Where Did I Go?’ Smith’s buttery vocals once again make me…

NEW MUSIC: NYC-based MC Kemba dismantles over-simplification and respectability politics in “The New Black Theory”

Posted on May 26, 2016 at 2:00pm 0 Comments

‘The New Black Theory’ is the newest release, and clever analysis of anti-black culture, by MC Kemba. The powerful track borrows it’s name from that one time Pharrell Williams tried to over-simplify systematic racism and anti-blackness in America by saying "The New Black doesn't blame other races for our issues. The New Black dreams and realizes that it's not a pigmentation; it's a mentality." Through the song, Kemba picks apart the hollow statement, and similar ones, that…

Now sure how the song review selection works? However here is a link to our latest release "It Could Have Been Me". It is dedicated to the memory of Trayvon, Eric, Michael and Oscar, and our contribution to the Black Lives Matter Movement.

Thanks

Thanks for the past love for Warrior. Here is a link for the new single "What Did I Do?". It's about the erosion of a relationship unbeknownst to you. You know when your brother, sister, friend or lover decides that something you did was so bad that they just cut off your relationship?
