Fear Tactics :: Bird Peterson Makes His Original Score Of ‘Night Of The Living Dead’ Available To Stream

From the digital desk of Teenage Riot Records :

After two successful Halloween live performances at the Alamo Drafthouse Ritz theater in Austin, Bird (Peterson) has finally released his critically acclaimed version of the classic genre definer Night Of The Living Dead featuring his new original score.  Inspired by 80s horror and post-modern classical composers, the “driving synth filled” new soundtrack creates “an ongoing, rising pulse that brings out the natural anxiety of the film”.  The full soundtrack is also now streaming everywhere and available for sale from Teenage Riot Records.

Spirits Moving :: Gost Drops Collection Of Songs With ‘Vol. 1’

Of the many lyricists I’ve met in the central Texas area, few have the combination of charisma, beat selection and lyrical prowess that Gost was blessed with.  After several years of live performances, previous releases and a bit of grinding, Gost has put together Vol. 1, a four song collection meant to give new (and old) listeners a glimpse into his world and at the direction things are headed for him.  These are songs that remind me of the hip-hop that I was raised on and influenced by… straight-forward, honest, compelling and composed with love and skill.  These songs are definitely worth your time, listens, comments and shares, so get on it!

Let’s Play :: Chief And TheDoomsdayDevice Stops By Baby Lion’s ‘Rappers Playing Games (RPG)’

From the moment I saw the Feral the Earthworm Earthworm Jim episode of the Baby Lion-produced, Adam Protextor-hosted series Rappers Playing Games (RPG), I knew I had to get in on that action.  I immediately hit up Protextor, a fellow nerd with deep appreciation for many aspects of pop culture, and pitched an episode where he and myself chop it up over a session of one of my favorite NES games, Rolling Thunder.  The ‘cool’ thing about vintage games, however, is that they sometimes fail to work, which put the most minimal of monkeywrenches in the plans.  After a quick scouring of Protextor‘s respectable game collection, however, I locked into another old school favorite of mine : the Sega Genesis port of the arcade monster from the late 1980s known as Stryder.  We checked it, and everything ran perfectly, so we sat down and had a deeply moving and inspiring conversation about art, creativity, inspirational sources, expression and much more.  I am honored to have been a part of Baby Lion‘s official Season One lineup, and I look forward to more of the great content they’ve been putting out.  Subscribe to Baby Lion on YouTube to stay in the loop, and be sure to give our video a like, comment and share if you feel inclined to do so.

Blue Collar :: Faylita Hicks Unviels ‘Verses & Tips’ Series With ‘Wolf’

Like most every independent creative, Faylita Hicks spends the moments that she isn’t creating slaving away at a day job.  Most all of us creatives have visions of one day making a living off of our art, but sadly, that cannot be the case for many of us.  As a way to bridge that gap between making a living off of her creations and making a living off of a day job, Faylita Hicks has started the Verses & Tips series, where she performs online and gives fans/supporters the opportunity to donate money via one of several digital funds transfer services.  Her latest poem in the series, Wolf, was chosen by fans out of the many published poems that Faylita Hicks has written, so definitely check it out and throw some money her way if you can.  If you can’t, be sure to share the video around so those who can may become aware.
