Some grimy, experimental hip hop from this new, self-titled Moodie Black EP, which you can stream via the widget above. The EP is a recent released on the New Haven-based record label Fake Four Inc., which is the home to some pretty creative minds in underground hip hop. Moodie Black, unquestionably, lives up to the label’s reputation with noisy, fuzzed out beats that dish out one rough texture after another.
The verses and vocal delivery accurately fit the dismal, eerie picture the instrumentals paint, too–even though there are times when they seem semi-drowned out by all the ruckus.
It’s a short release, just five tracks, and available via a pay-what-you-want deal on Bandcamp right now.
Death Grips’ full set at the 1100 Warehouse a few weeks ago during the SXSW festivities. As you may already know, I was down in front for this, and it was intense as hell.
Check a review of Death Grips’ latest album here:
Clipping drops a remix of the Foot Village track “This Song Is A Drug Deal,” which is a strange track for anyone to remix–much less Clipping. However, with their new full-length, Midcity, Clipping hasn’t exactly proven itself to a bastion of traditionalism. Rather, the trio combines harsh noise and hip hop in a pretty unique way.
“Unique” is a word that can be applied to this Foot Village remix, too. Clipping chops and twists the band’s extremely rhythmic sound to create a noisy foundation for Daveed Diggs’ dark, grimy lyrics. Enjoy!

It’s Clipping, bitch…

Austrian singer-songwriter Soap&Skin drops a new video in promotion for her latest single, which comes on the tail of an intense and forlorn sophomore album that I loved last year.
“Sugarbread” features the same vocal stylings, but it’s incredibly heavy with organ and orchestral hits of brass and strings. It’s massive from both a sonic and emotional standpoint. You can pre-order a copy of this 7″ here.
