So it’s a Tuesday, in the midst of what is a most interesting 4th quarter in the music game. While major labels are crossing their fingers on their cash cow artists, the Indie/Underground scene as always, prepares for their releases very nonchalantly on the knowledge that they don’t have to rush and cash in on first week or even first month sales. All of us underground heads know that the shelf life of a remarkable Underground classic is measured in MONTHS, YEARS and tours. With that being said, I look forward to seeing all these cats in the months ahead on the road.
Like always, here are today’s dopest, funk doobiest, indie/alternative releases, with more in depth coverage on artists we haven’t featured, Enjoy!
Jake One – White Van Music
Check our earlier post with some of the tracks featured for download!
Sway DaSafo – The Signature LP
Of course no American media is covering this release, but but trust me on this, the MAN does not want you to hear this album because it’s sick…but of course we covered it…
MF DOOM – Operation Doomsday [Re-Issue]
I am one of the chosen few who actually brought this album when it came out. [99′ or 00′ i think] Do I have an original? I don’t know. What I DO know is that ever since I seen that they were goin for $50.00 – $100 dollars on Amazon, I burned myself a copy and have never played the original disc since.
MF DOOM – Dead Bent
Finally after 800 years of rumors about the re-issue [since the 2001 edition], it is finally upon us. When I introduce MF DOOM to anyone who has never heard him I give them this album and Madvillain and I wind up converting them all, Muahahaha! ALL CAPs bitches.
