Black Milk feat. Royce Da 5'9 - Losing Out


One of my favourite producers Black milk is teaming up with Sean Price and Guilty Simpson to form Random Axe. The track MONSTER BABIES is definitely the best hip hop track i have heard of late. Album out sometime 2010.

While looking for an image for my Random Axe post this great picture came up. The funny thing is this guys blog was trying to sell the Structural engineering of the CN Tower in Toronto note the red arrow nice!


Bang Bang Eche are poised to make that next level of inde success in 2010 with the daringly titled Sonic Death Cunttt [EP] (2009). I remember seeing these guys play at smokefree rockquest and and am still dumbfounded that they did not win.

Local Natives - Camera Talk

From Silverlake, Calif. Blowing up in europe and bubbling under here but not for long i would say.

David Dallas feat. Niko - "I Get The Feelin"

Not the strongest single off the David Dallas debut album Something Awesome and a rather lame video too. Whats up with David sitting in a chair again can't the boy move. Then again one listen to the single indulge me will blow you away big time.
