Strong Arm Steady is a west coast hip hop collective. From their original 8 members they’re now down to three (after Xhibit left to pimp rides or something). Statik Selektah is a vetren producer/promoter/industry man from the east coast with a long tradition of MC/producer team up albums. The two camps compliment each other extraordinarily well. The three members of SAS hurl dark gritty rhymes, usually accompanied by a  guest or three. Statik lays down soothing hypnotic beats that balance the assault of 5 people rapping at you in 4 minutes. 

Blues Control … Valley Tangents … Drag City 2012

Intriguing unclassifiable post-rock, with hints of stadium, industrial, psych and prog (to name just a few). They wed exotic to the classical with a freedom the old masters couldn’t imagine. This album is brimming with life, careful recordings and compositions, and really are revolutionizing the experimental music scene today.

GREAT MUSIC VIDEO! That performance artist was really great to watch.

Hong Kong Blood Opera … Not for the Faint of Heart … 2012

Deranged five-piece punk-hardcore-posthardcore band from Mexico City. I’m angry with this, and I love it. Feels like the soundtrack to a night out smashing windows.
