P.O.S. - Fuck Your Stuff
Minneapolis rapper P.O.S. is dropping his new record We Don’t Even Live Hereon Tuesday, and the first single is a banger. The album is a late contender for one of the best rap records of the year, and I can’t wait to give it more time. Check the video out above and buy the record on Tuesday.
Masked Intruder - Why Don’t You Love Me In Real Life
Don’t ask. Just listen to this amazing, fun piece of indie pop-punk creeper gem. Their facebook bio is “The Best pop-punk band you hope never gets out of prison.” If that doesn’t sell you, I don’t know what will.
Future of the Left - Stand By Your Manatee
If you don’t listen to Future of the Left yet, you’re really screwing yourself over. This cut off 2009’s excellent Travels With Myself And Another exemplifies why FotL rules the hardest. The music is so loud and grimey and visceral and the lyrics are so explosive. Nothing in this world could take her common shame away / because emma’s mom and dad use plastic forks screams front man Andy Falkous over the writhing motion of the instruments. This band makes me so giddy. They released another solid record this year and I highly recommend checking this band out if you like loud music.
Killer Mike - Reagan
Just in time for the presidential debates, Killer Mike released his music video for “Reagan,” the politically paranoid crux of his awesome new record R.A.P. Music. Check it out above, and make sure to watch the Presidential Debates tonight. If you go to Quinnipiac, SGA will be hosting the Presidential Debates at Rocky Top on York Hill. WQAQ will be DJing politically charged anthems of paranoia and distrust. GET STOKED.
