seriously. is up and running, with a bunch of posts. go there. this is now absolutely defunct, but moraladventure is going to be way better than this ever was anyway. thanks for your patronage!


the last post was not serious.


this, however, is an actual ongoing project.

one that's going to see more action. moraladventure is coming soon, too. don't fret.

stay good peoples



man, what's it been? three months?

here's what's up. i am working on an album of my own with my guy from remembertohaveagoodtime aka realtalk aka its okay not to dance, as well as a mixtape of sorts. alot of our old material and rhyming over other people's beats and whatnot.

that and i am working to start a new blog with said homey and my main internet dude gonzo from sunflowerchakramilk... really it should be called a superblog with that sort of name. which would eliminate these long pauses between posts, because all three of us would be posting.

in the meantime, i made the funniest and most fun track of my music making career (?) tonight. t-pain's can't believe it, but i made it a song about a certain actress. the song is called "My Penis Say Yeah" and it's a not-mutually-inclusive piece of the mixtape, so, yeah. it's funny. not serious. the autotuner is the greatest thing ever. hahahaha

Pocahaunted - Beast That You Are


(image) This is a rip of Pocahaunted's most recent Night People cassette release, which came out earlier this year. Damn these girls release a ton of music, yet it's all so sweet. Enjoy!

Grouper - Cover The Windows And The Walls


(image) Here is some more from Grouper. Cover The Windows And The Walls was a limited press LP that dropped shortly before Dragging A Dead Deer.

Magik Markers - Boss


(image) Matt & Kim on steroids? haha. I kid, but seriously, Magik Markers rule. Their songs start off helter skelter until they find that groove they are subconsciously searching for, and when they do, they step up 2 da streets. Guitars and noise, it's a bit louder than most of the stuff I like, but there are pop songs lingering beneath.

Ol' Dirty Bastard - Return To The 36 Chambers


(image) Why do they call him the Ol Dirty Bastard? Because there's no father to his style.

Busta Rhymes (who had been around forever, even before this dropped, with Leaders Of The New School... who were a relatively unknown part of the Native Tongues) commented that he never quite understood how to make an album with his wild rhyming style until he heard this. He would subsequently release a string of platinum albums. 

That was not what ODB was after. He was after some blood. Whether it was period blood, or bustin' yr fucking ass, some blood. RZA really contured beats to snugly fit Osirus' obtuse style, and Big Baby Jesus did whatever he wanted. Probably one of the most true to himself artists that American music has seen, whether you like it or not.

Sunset Rubdown - 2 early EP's

True to form, homeboy from Wolf Parade displayed what was to come on the only good album Sunset Rubdown ever made (Shut Up I Am Dreaming), on these early EP's. These are the sketches for those songs; both make for interesting and rewarding listens.

Various Artists - Soundbombing II


(image) Oh shit! I talked about the RA The Rugged Man song from this a couple days back, but this thing is filled with so many hits it's unbelievable, plus it was mixed by fucking Babu and J Rocc, who were legends back then. I can not stress how classic this is!

The Eminem song was fire (Last night I od'd on rush, mushrooms and dust/then got rushed/to the hospital to get my system flushed/shucks!... give me 11 excederin my head will spin/medicine will get me revin like a 747 jet engine), Common had the banger 1999, Mos Def and the High & Mighty + Mad Skillz teamed up for B-Boy Document, Pharaoe Monche did Mayor - which was about assassinating Rudolph Guiliani!, Talib Kweli, Bahamadia, Sadat X... El-P and Company Flow with what is arguably the best song that group ever did in America. Whew! 

Since underground rap music could get no better than this, it immediately fell off completely, with Rawkus trying to capitalize on it's new found fanbase (bro's), Eminem hitting mainstream status, Mos Def deciding to never actually write a decent song, and El-P leaving Company Flow to start the overrated Def Jux (they had a few nice albums, but let's be honest). Classic material.

Note about this: whenever I put compilations into my iTunes, I make the artist Various Artists. You may not like it, but that's how it's listed. Actual artist credits are in the song titles.

Joanna Newsom - & The Ys Street Band

Show & AG - Full Scale LP


(image) Consumate 90's East Coast underground rap. These guys are so underrated. A part of the super-group DITC [Diggin In The Crates, a group which, at least at times, included DJ Premier, Big L, Fat Joe (who wasn't always a cash-cow), and OC, among others], this was initially released as an EP that I had doubles of on vinyl. Having thought it was completely out of print, I was floored after coming across this full length version on CD. I wore the shit out of that record. It features Big Pun (RIP), and KRS-One, who shoes up with an pretty good I Got Next era verse. If you are into Gang Starr or Group Home, cop this!

Grouper - Dragging A Dead Deer Up A Hill


(image) Contender for top five albums of the year status, Grouper managed to make a remarkable album. She has a knack for creating ghostly melodies that are a springboard for her beautifully haunting voice, that withers away in a forest towards the end of fall. A layer spring time pop lies buried beneath a ground overgrown with morning dew covered leaves here. Musty scents and clean air, you are in a mountain range somewhere in Colorado practicing yoga alone during the onset of dawn. Lovely.

White Rainbow - Prism Of Eternal Now


(image) Blissed out ambient music? Adam Forkner has collaborated in teh past with dude from Valet for Dark Yoga, and has produced for groups like Yellow Swans, Devendra, and Jackie-O Motherfucker, to name a few. This is more easy-going than those, and is damn good dream music.

Curtis Mayfield - Curtis


(image) In light of the news about Isaac Hayes, I should have posted Black Moses or something, but this had been in rotation. 

Most good Soul music from the era this was released gets critiqued against Marvin Gaye, so I'll offer this: Curtis is like the illegitimate step-son of Let's Get It On and What's Going On. Somewhat political, somewhat gettin da ladies, Mayfield finds himself on the high note of his solo career here (imo, it's better than the Superfly stuff, though I love that too). And yes, Move On Up was the song sampled by Just Blaze for Kanye West's Touch The Sky.

MGMT - We (Don't) Care Ep


(image) This is their earliest material I have found to date, and it sounds like they were listening to a lot of Paula Abdul at the time. Seriously.

Clipse Present Re-Up Gang


(image) Blah blah blah cocaine blah blah blah spirit of competition blah blah blah whatever that little intro is to Sandman's verses. This has a bunch of verses from WGIFC 3, but it's still a good listen.

Sean McCann - Jasmine


(image) My girlfriends yelling at me on the phone, so I'll give you's description:

the real sean mccann hails from brooklyn, nyc. ramshackle guitar dirges get broken into pieces and glued back together with paste made from analog synthetics. Sean whirrs his way up and down dunes, through valleys of glistening sand. with hints of makeshift percussion acting as leader of the caravan, mccann molds the distorted, washed-out guitar tones into something catchy and fit for a king.

Crystal Stilts - Crystal Stilts


(image) The only way I can describe this best is by calling it a blissed out version of Velvet Underground. Specifically songs like "I Found A Reason" From Loaded. I could be wrong, however... it happens alot. Good stuff.

Dinosaur Jr - Where You Been


(image) I was super reluctant once again (mang, I sleep on so much good stuff it's retarded) to listen to Dinosaur Jr. Look at the album cover, it's scary. If Charles Bukowski had a kid with an Alien that had downs, and that kid was trying to emulate On The Road, this would be his portrait. 

Eventually forced to listen to it by another kid that works at the record store, I was suprised at the depth of it. The first track is a little loud, but not over the top, and then the album slides into a groove of subtle-lushness, with J Macsis' lounging falsetto hovering above. I saw Fearless Freaks and just came to the conclusion that Wayne Coyne was ripping off Butthole Surfers. And he may be, but he is for sure ripping off Macsis. The only FLips record that tops this is The Soft Bulletin... And that's saying something.

Miles Davis - On The Corner


(image) You HAVE to respect Miles Davis' gangster. He covered so much ground musically, it's nearly unheard of in the modern era. Really, and I said this on the last Charles Mingus post, these jazz albums are the precursor to the free-form psych/drone albums that are so hot right now. This album, specifically, is what I'd call Vietnam Jazz. So poignant, that it places the listener in the bunkers, bombs shrapnel-ing around you, the smell of dust and sweat, the bustle of making it to the next out-post, tall trees flailing in the jet-stream of military planes overhead. Acute bongos, sharp electric guitar, and riveting horn hits subtly shatter the listeners notion of what jazz is -- which is quite why On The Corner was frowned upon after it's initial release, and smiled upon in retrospect.

Shpilberg - Gold Fish


(image) OMG. 

So I deal with this guy on this website who runs DNT Records, and he supplies me with most of the sweet underground psych drone tapes/cds/records that I buy. You can check it out here. I place pretty big orders on a regular basis, and sometimes I end up with stuff that I didn't order because he's awesome, he responds quickly, and the prices on his merch is so far beyond fair it's ridiculous. 

Well my latest order came through yesterday, and I had no clue wtf this was, but the cover art was so awesome it was the first thing I listened to (the artwork is in a jpg on my desktop, but blogger was taking so long to up it, I said fuck it). 

Well I have been schooled in the art of drums because the guy I do music with is obsessed with good drum sounds, and hardly anyone does it right (see Axelrod, DJ Shadow, jazz drummers). Most people just want to bang on the drums and have no sense of anything. 

Well most of these sorts of albums don't really focus on drums. But holy shiznite! The drummer on this MURDERS! Plus the rest of the sounds are pretty brilliant. But damn that drummer has got it on lock. I am trying to get ahold of these guys because only has 14 scrobbles by one user for this band, so we can solve the conundrum of who these people are. Anyhow, this one gets on of my more pleasant suprise highly recommended seal of approvals.

Abe Vigoda - Skeleton


(image) Damn, dogg. I had been trying to find this on the internet for quite some time, and slept on the initial links, and then couldn't find it again once homeboy's name started popping up all over the place. They often do shows at the same place as, and are categorized with, HEALTH, but that's not quite fair. It's almost tribal meets punk, right around the bonfire, before the ghost stories, just as everyone is happily first drunk. 

Since I can't find it anywhere else, I'm assuming the link won't stay up long, so get it quickly!

Keith Fullerton Whitman - Antithesis


(image) Another rekkid I picked up over the weekend, consisting of drone instrumental pieces, made up of Rhodes, guitars, violas, mallets, and dulcimers. If those instruments don't moisten up that vag, I'm not sure what is going to do it for you. On the real though, it's effin beautiful.
