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.

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!

A while back, I did a piece on the catchy Kydd Jones cut Dripped Up. I’m happy to announce that Kydd has boomeranged back around with a dope video for the track. The video has a solid, sleek and professional look, a reflection of all the progress and growth from Kydd‘s camp the last couple of years. This one should definitely make some waves, so do your part by liking, sharing and commenting.
Chaznik of the Trial By Error Variety Show spends an inordinate amount of time searching for and interviewing bands across a wide spectrum of genres. Be it online investigation, festivals, or regular shows, Chaznik finds a way to interview many bands for his podcast. This past week, he decided it was time to do a collective follow-up on a number of these bands, hence the creation of Radio-esque Vol. 3. The podcast consists of quick updates for (and new music from) a large selection of bands, including yours truly. Been looking for something new to listen to? Look no further.

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.
