For anyone under the impression that HOMEROOM may be on an indefinite hiatus, those thoughts have been struck down with the release of mind masters, one banger of a surprise single. Heir Max and Jayoin jump on the track to make the lyrical onslaught double the potency, and John Tunstle comes through with another wonderfully produced beat for all of the chaos to collide on. If this is an indication of an upcoming HOMEROOM album, I’ll be right here, ready and waiting to listen.

One of the best things about being involved in the independent music scene is watching mutual friends combine to make big steps on big projects. Heir Max has been a friend and someone I have shared a number of stages with for quite a while. Sixo and I have crossed paths on occasion, and we share a number of mutual friends. The two of them have combined under the label Fake Four (the indie juggernaut run by my friend Ceschi) to form Alligator Food, a no-nonsense combination of hard beats and hard rhymes. On some six degrees of separation action, my friend Grace Park left her songbird presence on one of the tracks for this EP. The guys from Alligator Food were even nice enough to put together a lo-fi mindscramble of a video for G.O.Y.A., the lead single.
