Post-Rap grandaddy Sole brings his considerable skills for avant-garde Anarchist agitprop lyrcism to bear on false-flag waving conspiracy mongers on the searing deconstruction "Fuck Alex Jones".
"Fuck Alex Jones" is the lead track from Sole and DJ Pain 1's four track 'Warfare'
EP, which is available for purchase for the bargain price of $4 via Sole's Bandcamp page.
It's just a taste of what the two have to offer on their forthcoming 'Deathdrive'
LP, which can be pre-ordered on Sole's own website.
Free download 'The Blob'
is around a half an hours worth of dope
beats produced by none other than Aesop Rock.
It boasts a surprising variety of sounds and styles to be heard throughout the project's runtime.
Kinda makes one wonder why Aesop isn't tapped to produce other acts during downtime between albums?
I've seen a couple of videos from NRK/OFGKTA associate Pyramid Vritra, but this trippy clip for his tune "Spool" is the first one that really appealed to me.
There's some deep imagery, in both his laid-back lyricism and the slightly psychedelic visuals that accompany them in the video, coloring this kid's cool-cool Cloud Rap.
"Spool" is from Pyramid Vritra's debut full length album 'Indra'
, which is available right now via the increasingly eccentric Stones Throw recording label.
So, this is the kind of thing I watch on my phone during trips to and from work on the bus.
Admittedly, I'm a bit too much of a left-handed, anti-authoritarian, do-it-yourself kind of guy to go in for the ritual, theatricality, and group dynamic of ceremonial magick. But I found this instructional video starring author & occultist Carroll "Poke" Runyon, which portrays some rituals of his Golden Dawn spinoff group The Order of the Temple of Astarte
Some of the rituals demonstrated in the video are pretty fascinating in their own right. But for me it was Poke himself, who is oddly charismatic, that really held my attention. Dude is like some kind of hermetic Dave Thomas
. The kind of guy you want to share a burger with after a long day casting spells. And his booming voice and facial expressions throughout the video are fucking classic
You don't have to believe in magick or the occult to enjoy this video.
You just have to believe in Poke.
Backwoodz Studioz's Billy Woods is one of my favorite rappers in the game right now.
And he sounds especially dope spitting Biblical references and flexing a "slow it up speed it up flow" over a soulful but spooky beat from producer L’Orange on "The End".
The video, from Jay Brown and Paul Mihailoff, is as dark and mysterious as Woods himself.
"The End" is from L'Orange's new album 'The Orchid Days'
, out now on Mello Music Group.

Holy. Fucking. Shit.
I had Ubisoft's 'Watch_Dogs'
pre-ordered when it was supposed to be out last Fall. And I've been anticipating the game in general for some time before that. But this new trailer, which focuses on the game's digital recreation of the city of Chicago, just upped the ante big time!
hits the streets May 27th.
"Born to Die", the new Hylas Films-directed video from King Khan & The Shrines features some pretty heavy magickal death and rebirth imagery.
I dig it.
That the visuals were made to accompany a song that's such a high energy Psychadelic Garage Rock workout just makes it all the more fabulous.
I dig that too.
"Born to Die" is from King Khan & The Shrines' most recent album, 'Idle No More'
, which is in stores now on the Merge Records label.
