Unsolved Mysteries :: Brutalism’s Self-Titled Release Is Amazing

a3199083936_10

Prior to finding Brutalism‘s recent self-titled release on Bandcamp, I knew nothing about them (and, even after some research, I still really don’t know anything about them).  I couldn’t find much information on their label, Digital Hotdogs (great name).  What I could find, however, was time to listen to this amazing album and time to share it with all of you.  Going in blind is the best way to handle these things sometimes, as ignorance is bliss.

Collected Works :: Mystic Prism Drops ‘Electronic Mix – Fall 2017’

a1400057744_10

Here’s to hoping that Bandcamp isn’t going anywhere anytime soon.  Sometimes, I’m unsure of where my next post will come from… I’ve received notifications in the email, I’ve stacked up saved links from my online searches, but am feeling the need to step outside of my comfort realm, and boom… a simple search for Austin TX always yields wonderful results.  Today’s find was Austin-based electronic producer Mystic Prism and his mixed collection of work that spans the last few years up to this past fall.  Electronic Mix – 2017 is complete escapist music… the sounds and textures play around with one another, leaving you wrapped up and lost in the musical chase.  Bolstered by an amazingly dense and intriguing album cover, I can definitely say I am happy with today’s discovery.  Hopefully, I’m not the only one who ends up enjoying this today.

Smart Money :: OMS Sunglasses Hit The Streets

Old Man Skateboards is back at it again with the merch, and this time it’s in the form of sunshades.  You know how OMS does it with the DIY, and this commercial is proof of both the creativity and hilarity found within the OMS YouTube channel.  You can cop a pair for 10 bones by reaching out to oldmanskateboards@yahoo.com, or you can cop them via the Bandcamp page.

Cold Facts :: BLXPLTN Talks ‘FEMA’ Live At Swan Dive

Even in a country as rich in resources as North America, you run into disparity quite often.  With the recent slate of continued hurricanes that have hit the south and southeast, old patterns are emerging, and an errant foundation is gaining strength.  Almost a year ago, BLXPLTN took the time to point out an example of this by writing FEMA, an exposé on the level of help the poor are provided in the times that they need it the most.  This particular video is from a recent performance at Swan Dive in Austin, and was captured by Son and Son Productions.  This track can be purchased on BLXPLTN‘s Bandcamp page, and all proceeds go towards hurricane relief.

Serious Bars :: Crew54 Drops ‘DAE1NZ’ Single

a3235456027_10

Crew54 is back at it in a big way.  They’ve been teasing the release of Slaprapz 2 for a hot minute now, and recently, M.O.S. mentioned a music video in the works that he believes will blow some minds.  Not too long after that, DAE1NZ showed up on Bandcamp, and man, these cats just get rawer and rawer.  Crew54 has a way of embracing the classic hip hop sounds and group dynamic without coming off as dated or passe.  If DAE1NZ is any indication of the song quality for Slaprapz 2, I’m ready with money in hand when it drops.
