Pimpstrut Local #13 - Music For Film (Not Porn)



Band / Artist: Pimpstrut Local #13
Year: 2015
Genre: Funk, Soul-RnB, Alternative Pop,

My Review:
This is SO GOOD. Its like a Beck sound, and Parliament Funkadelic are crossed over each other. I love the hell out of it.

They have 3 releases, 2 of which are more EPs, and this one, which is more an LP. For real, I want to hear more from this band. I really like them a ton.

Go listen to this, I promise it's good.

The Impossebulls - The Devils You Know



Band / Artist: The Impossibulls
Year: 2016
Genre: Hip-Hop, Soul-RnB

My Review: 
Here is the direct post info that came with this release. They have a great groove that seems to be falling to the wayside in rap and hip-hop these days. I hear plenty of Geto Boys and People Under the Stairs. I'm really liking it.


Today The Impossebulls return with their first album of all new material since 2014’s impressive “Everything Has Changed; Nothing Is Different”! The new album, “The Devils You Know” is another dope selection of joints that simultaneously take you back to that classic boom bap sound, while also remaining fresh and new.As with the previous album, The Bulls enlist a little help from good friends and legends… the most notable of which is one of the founding members of the great Stetsasonic and one of the most distinctive voices in hip-hop… Daddy-O! Of course that’s not all… the great Kyle Jason lends his voice to the album… as does the talented Anime Oscen. Last, but surely not least… our own The Honorable Sleaze drops a verse!This dope new album isn’t all, though… in the coming five months, The Bulls are dropping the 5x5 series of EPs. One each month featuring more new music! Also, very soon, fans will be able to purchase “Devil’s Work”… a limited edition box set containing the album and all five EPs, so fans don’t have to wait to get all that fresh music into their ears! We’ll let you know when that becomes available. For now… we hope you enjoy the new album.A very sincere thank you to The Impossebulls and all collaborators for delivering yet another underground / independent / netlabel hip-hop classic. Sleepers will sleep… those who are woke will hear it. blocSonic’s going to continue to wake ’em. Word.Of course, thanks once again to you for downloading & listening. We always strive to deliver the music you’ll love. Please spread the word about blocSonic, if you enjoy what we do. Remember… everything we release is cool to share! Always keep the music moving… share it… blog it… podcast it! If you’re in radio… support independent music and broadcast it!

I think they summed it up just fine. Good shit. Listen to it.

The Satans - Social Justice Warrior



Band / Artist: The Satans
Year: 2014
Genre: Punk, Thrash Metal, Hardcore

My Review:
Ever want to just flail violently in a mosh pit, or smash some shit? Well here is some music for that.

The Satans are a band out of Highland Park IL, who started out in the best I can tell around 2012. Ah, okay so they started as a solo project and snowballed into a full band. These are the two albums they've got out there so far. Its some good, rough ass hardcore. Their facebook is here.

I like that they sound so gritty without having that really poor recording studio sound that comes along with a lot of hardcore, so, good on you guys for not using poor recording methods.

And because I'm into it, Here is their other album the self titled one. I actually like this one more than the other, but screw it, I already wrote the post for the first album. ENJOY THEM BOTH. SEE YOU IN THE PIT.

Moby - Long Ambients1: Calm. Sleep.




Band / Artist: Moby
Year: 2017
Genre: Ambient, Minimalist, Chillout

My Review:
For every Yoga, Meditation, or sleep session you need to start, there is now Moby, coming to save the day and be a badass vegan bald little person with a surprisingly deep voice.

Each of these separate long ambient pieces runs a different time, so you can pick the one that fits the time you have to use meditating or getting into childs pose (that shit is comfy af).

Anyway, Hats off to Moby for still doing cool shit after like 20 years.

Judah & the Lion - Judah & the Lion


Band / Artist: Judah & the Lion
Year: 2017
Genre: Indie Folk, Indie Dance, Folk Pop

My Review:
This has been on steady rotation in the car the last 2 weeks. I've been enjoying the sort of nostalgic southernality of it, in this sense of all the pleasant and good things of the south, but from a more fresh and welcoming perspective than the south seems to have to many.

Its cool how they mix fiddle and banjo and acoustic guitar with drum machine and synthesizer in an odd bluegrass/folk/pop sort of medley. It flows far better than you'd expect at first glance.

Here is their website.

These guys are out of Nashville, TN, which should surprise nobody. I really appreciate their sound. It reminds me of driving in the coastal area of Georgia with my windows down, smelling the marsh air in the sunshine.

Aphex Twin - All user18081971 Soundcloud Tracks



Band / Artist: Aphex Twin
Year: 2015
Genre: IDM, Braindance

My Review:
So I was enjoying the tracks from the User18081971 account and noticed that many tracks had disappeared. I was kind of bummed out and figured id find somewhere they'd be streaming. little did I expect to get this.

I got to see him play live for the first time in a decade at the Day For Night festival in December, and so I've been on a kick since then. (I'm going to Day For Night again for sure. It was absolutely amazing. Who wants to meet up there?)

Anyway, here are about 280 tracks from Aphex Twin, in an easy to listen to or download format, and they were all freely downloadable before off of SoundCloud,

LLLAMAS - LLLAMAS EP



Band / Artist: LLLAMAS
Year: 2016
Genre: Krautrock, Garage Rock, Alternative Rock

My Review:

A fun little set of tracks from this band i just found out of Seattle. I like their sounds, and wouldn't mind if I end up hearing more of them in the future. Its a bit hard to pin down exactly, some kind of spacey rock sounds, good stuff.

Also from them is a single on their ghost of a bandcamp page.

-{:(.SINGLES.):}- Notch - Do U Like


Band / Artist: Notch
Year: 2016
Genre: Minimal, Microhouse

My Review:
After a long way out, I am back to run this thing again.

And what better way to approach a return than with a short, calming album with a cover picture of someone dancing madly in a world on fire!? Fitting right?


Anyway,. I don't know much about this artist, and I can fill in some info on them later but for now, I wanted to get this out there, and send the message to people that I hope you are okay, and have some music. Take care of yourself out there, okay?
