Self-proclaimed art-rapper, Open Mike Eagle, treats us to a performance of the opening track from his newly released sophomore album Rappers Will Die of Natural Causes.

A clever video starring Gene Hackman (as Vin’S?) that also heavily teases for Cuero’s upcoming album “Put It On Wax”. Which is sounding great so far.
South Dakota’s trio, Soulcrate Music, were one of my favourite emerging artists of 2010 and its good to see them back with their new EP The Kick Rocks Collection. At times The Heartland Panic, their 2010 album, embodied exactly what Lesson Six was set up for, so I’m anxious to give their new stuff ago. In the meantime here’s the video for the opening track of the new EP, “See Today”
If anyone could find me a track that’s more 70s than this, barring all tracks from the 1970s, I’d be surprised. Lyrics Born’s “Coulda Woulda Shoulda” is good on so many levels. Just enjoy this one.
An appropriately strange video for “I Gotta Rokk” off DJ Shadow’s upcoming album The Less You Know, The Better. Expected for release in September.
“Pushing Up Daises” from My Son The Hurricane’s first album, You Can’t Do This, just got a video. I’m not entirely surprised it was one of the great tracks on that short release, it just plays to the strengths of the group so well.
I’m so glad that this track has surfaced as it has brought Serengeti back to my attention. We did a little feature with him and Sicker Man for their upcoming collaboration in our magazine, but despite “Accommodating” being a great track, it was last year’s “Flutes” that stuck with me. It was a strange release, seemingly not attached to any project until now. Serengeti’s new solo album Family & Friends is due out July the 19th and not only will it feature “Flutes” but this great track as well. One to look out for.
It’s slightly brag-rappish but would you expect anything else from Masta Ace. At least when he goes that route, you know you’ll get something solid. Here’s the video for “I Refuse”.
