    Eligh “Pac-Man” | @therealeligh

    The Living Legend’s own Eligh decided to share this song due to everything going on in the media in the last few weeks. Check the song below, as well as what he had to say about. Lyrics and download available at his Soundcloud page. This smooth banger was produced by DNAE.

    I wrote this song for my upcoming album, “80Hrtz” many months ago. This album isn’t finished yet, but I can’t sit by and not share this song with you all right now. The paranoia, bigotry, ignorance, and gang mentality being displayed by police over and over again in this country makes me nauseous. I wrote this song about being ignorant to my friends feelings of fear, and hatred towards the police, being the one white kid in the group most of the time. I sampled the movie “Colors” where the main officer was nicknamed “Pac-man” by the neighborhood folks he terrorized. This song is dedicated to every person angered and saddened by the events unfolding in Ferguson. An American city, under siege by its own Police force. Black people under siege, once again. Racism, alive and well. My love to everyone in pain over this madness.

    Star Captains “New Freedoms” Release & “Love Is” Video | @Narai_ @StarCaptains

    Grab your morning coffee and donut, and press play on this smooth and groovy album from the Star Captains. I’ve also added the video their main single from the project. Video by Shea Pollard and Benjamin Schuetze.

    Star Captains consist of seven members and are based in Vancouver, BC. Their music carries the spirit of 70s soul, complimented with modern sound design and instrumental technology. A beat-laced fusion of analog synthesizers and classic guitar tones played through tube-driven amps provides the edgy instrumental tracks behind hypnotic lead vocals.

    BABA: 5 Year Old Jordan Writes A Hip Hop Song (Video)

    I’m just going to throw this out there: this song by 5 Year Old Jordan is better than a lot of the submissions we get. Regardless of if this is somehow a spoof or not, as there’s definitely some help with the writing (although it looks as if he’s really making these beats), there’s a lesson in this somewhere. I think. I’m classifying this in the Be A Better Artist category because of that. Let this marinate a bit.

    And if you have a problem just deal with it.

    Moses Sumney “Man On The Moon” Video | @MosesSumney

    Check out some dope stop-motion from Moses Sumney‘s recent “Man On The Moon” track/video. The track is off os his debut Mid-City Island EP, which I’ve attached down below too. This is dope.

    I started making “Mid-City Island” in the fall, after a producer friend lent me an ’80s 4-track recorder and suggested I try recording myself before going into proper studio sessions. It was my first time recording myself, capturing songs immediately to cassette tape as I was writing them. I later decided it would be cool to share these ideas in their infancy so you can trace their development over time.

    This project for me is about learning how to let go and share ideas that are raw, simple, and unfiltered. A lot of the parts are thus one-take and improvised. “Mumblin’,” which I recorded with my loop pedal connected to the tape machine, is completely made up on the spot and was only done once.

    There’s a requisite honesty that comes with bedroom recordings. Thematically, the songs center around living alone in the middle of a big city like Los Angeles, finding the balance between isolation and over stimulation.

    “Mid-City Island” will be available digitally and on cassette!
