NEW MUSIC: Abdu Ali's 'MONGO' is A Mantra of Black Queer Strength #SoundCheck

Posted on April 29, 2016 at 6:00pm 0 Comments

It seems almost unfair to write about Abdu Ali's latest release after only a week. This is the sort of shit people will be writing dissertations about in 20 years. The density of sound and ideas is staggering. There's a lot to unpack. Listening to MONGO is like injecting bell hooks directly into your brain. Listening to MONGO is like spending a night inside Miles Davis' trumpet. Listening to Mongo is like suspending time in a computer crash. It's also not like those things…

NEW MUSIC: Funk-n-hip-hop artist Rickstar releases exuberant EP ‘Funkafied Suave’

Posted on April 29, 2016 at 4:00pm 0 Comments

Not sure if it’s the fur coat or what but Rickstar EP ‘Funkafied Suave’ gives me several shades of funktastic 1970s pimps. The blistering album is an interesting blend hip-hop and late-Motown-inspired funk. Filled to the brim with in-your-face instrumentation, like the confrontational drums that open ‘Heart Strings’ and the bold horn section on ‘Get Up If You’re Bad’ feat. Sinse. Rickstar’s enthusiasm, showmanship, and pure talent shines brightly, song after song, where he,…

AFROPUNK PREMIERE: Experimental electronica artist Lawrence Lindell drops ambient fight song ‘Melanin Battle’

Posted on April 29, 2016 at 12:41pm 0 Comments

Today's premiere comes from Lawrence Lindell, an experimental artist out of L.A. His brand new single ‘Melanin Battle’ is an ambient, synth-driven soundscape that builds and builds as if Lindell was performing before your eyes, a row of loop pedals at his feet. There’s a subtle tone of the theatric that creeps in as the track builds, suggesting a little bit of suspense and adrenaline. "I created Melanin Battle as a score to a few thoughts I was having in my head," Lindell…

NEW MUSIC: Bad Brains’ Dr. Know and Deftones’ Chino Moreno join forces for hardcore supergroup Saudade

Posted on April 29, 2016 at 11:00am 0 Comments

Chino Moreno of Deftones and BAD BRAINS guitarist Dr. Know, drummer Mackie Jayson, and Crosses’ bassist Chuck Doom and jazz keyboardist John Medeski join forces as new supergroup project called Saudade. Their first single, also called ‘Saudade’, is a brooding quiet storm that rumbles into thunderous intensity. It’s not totally clear which direction the project wants to go in, but this sure is a cool start.



Members of BAD BRAINS will be playing alongside members…

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?
