Brain Scrambler :: Marrow Drops ‘The Damage Done’ Via Milled Pavement

a2944946475_10

In a mere 6-ish months, Milled Pavement Records has gone from being on the underground bubble to being a forced to be reckoned with for East Coast-based and forward-thinking artists.  With homies like BrzowskiAnthony Maintain and MC Homeless already making appearances on the roster, it was a safe assumption that anything from the collective that crossed my radar would be quality, and Marrow kept that streak going by getting me hip to his latest release, The Damage Done.  As a fan of groups like Non-Phixion and Darkleaf, this project hit me right in the feels, and the backstory given for the project makes the lyrical and musical onslaught that much more interesting.  Definitely take a moment to read the Bandcamp liner notes when (not if!) you go to check this one out, support if you can, and share it around for other heads to enjoy!

Dark Matter :: MC Homeless & HaplogroupX Combine For ‘Duress’ EP

a0782371970_10

If you like your hip-hop reference-filled, sarcastic with a side of hard truth, all over jazzy melodies that hold ill drums together, then Duress has arrived for you like pennies from heaven.  HaplogroupX (consisting of Bernichus and producer/engineer Transplant) has teamed up with the formidable MC Homeless to release the project on Milled Pavement Records, and honestly, I’m surprised that this combination did not happen sooner, as it sounds completely natural.  Transplant has put together an amazing collection of tracks that are sequenced like a film score, and the MC pairing (along with special guest Anthony Maintain) have put out an early contender for the 2020 Top 10 lists for those smart enough to get hip.  Definitely don’t skip this one out… seek it out on Bandcamp to support directly, or find it on your favorite digital storefront/streaming service, and support your local creatives.

Metropolis is a really cool apartment complex in the East Riverside neighborhood of Austin. They cater to musicians and artist types and provide a chill atmosphere for people to live, create, and party. The show is in the center of the complex, where there is a pool and volleyball court. The pool area has a stage and some BBQ pits as well. The 2nd stage will be on the other side of the building, in a roped off parking lot. The volleyball court becomes our graffiti exhibition area.
