Aesop Rock and Kimya Dawson are The Uncluded – “Bats”

This is exactly what I thought this would sound like.  Kimya Dawson does her cute, folky, kooky sing-songy rhymes. And Aesop Rock delivers his tongue-twisting delivery and kills it as usual.  The Uncluded album Hokey Fright will drop at some point after Aesop Rock’s Skelethon (July10th). Here is “Bats”. It is a 6:44 track that just makes me want more.  A lot more.  The lyrics are included in this particular video(with some typos). Enjoy.


Tennis- “Petition”

I have to credit my friend Nick for putting me on this.  I kept hearing good things about this band but never got around to listen.  At first glance it looks like Melissa Etheridge, luckily it is not.   This is catchy pop music at it’s best.  I have posted a live version and album version. Enjoy.




El-P – Cancer for Cure and New Single

5 years after his last album, El-P is going to release Cancer for Cure May 22nd. I have been a fan for a few years and am eager to see what he does on his new label, Fat Possum. If “The Full Retard” is any indication of what is to come, this guy refuses to change or compromise. Also here is one of my favorites and the track that really made me an El-P fan, “Smithereens” . S/O to Sev Seveer for putting me on this years ago. Enjoy.
