Blu ‘Homeboy Sandman is The Sandman’ (.ZIP) It feels like forever since I posted something from Los Angeles bred emcee and sometimes beatmaker Blu. But a few days ago he surprised Hip-Hop fans with a new “pay what you want” EP ‘Homebody Sandman is The Sandman’ featuring none other than[…]
In light of Monday Magick’s absence I couldn’t resist presenting you with this crazy-ass Reggaeton video featuring a witch and some weird Santeria/Brujeria imagery. Seriously, I have no idea what the hell is supposed to be going on in this song or the video, like to the point where I’m[…]
Sorry folks, but Monday Magick will be taking this week off. We’ll be back with another entry of our magickal musical feature next week.
For the last month I’ve had to listen to nothing but Christmas music for 8 hours every weekday at my day job. This has done little but remind me that Christmas is in fact the worst. I’ve lectured at length via social media about how Christmas celebrants need to recognize[…]
Last month ‘Assassin’s Creed Unity’, Ubisoft’s ambitious first “next gen” entry in its long-running historical-fiction adventure series, was released amid a flurry of complaints. The biggest issues seemed to be frame-rates dropping well below the supposedly locked rate of 30fps, the in-game economy which allows players to “level up” their[…]
Micah James has been on my favorite emcees list since he dropped the ‘Agoraphobia’ “mixtalbum” back in 2009. Unfortunately the LA-based wordsmith has also been largely M.I.A. since then, leaking a track here and a track there, but remaining frustratingly under the radar. Thankfully, a seemingly reinvigorated, apologetically stylish, Micah[…]
Seattle’s Shabazz Palaces dropped this video for “#CAKE” not too long after they released their fourth LP ‘Lese Majesty’ this Summer. Somehow I not only spaced on posting this video, but I somehow spaced on the video existing at all, despite the fact that “#CAKE” is easily one of my[…]
Blog favorite, Guelph, Ontario, Canada’s Noah23, is prepping a new album for release in the new year. That’s not holding him back from releasing a new video for “Glory of the Light”, a track from his 2013 release ‘ФℭҜvŁ† †ЯiŁŁ III: βŁΔ§† றΔ§†€Я †Ҥ€ЯiФ₦’, though. Watch out though, cuz this[…]
Sorry folks, but Monday Magick will be taking this week off. We’ll be back with another entry of our magickal musical feature soon enough.
Listening to their new single “Moths” I’m finding myself having trouble believing Electro-Pop duo Tomboy are from Brooklyn and not somewhere like Iceland. The video, lensed by Director Maria Burns, is giving me major flashbacks to the heavily stylized black & white videos that enjoyed some measure of popularity during[…]
Respected crate-digging publication Wax Poetics has thrown their weight behind Newark, New Jersey’s Zee Desmondes and Teddy Powell, better known as The Jack Moves. Inspired by a mutual love for Wu-Tang and Lowrider Oldies, the pair decided to parlay their dabbling in music which sampled old school Soul tunes into[…]
This week’s Monday Magick entry is the work of Over Night Low, an Ohio area Funk outfit whose members would go on to populate the bands Sun and the Ohio Players. Their 1972 single “The Witch Doctor (Catches Jungle Fever)”, cut for the King Records sub-label De Luxe Records, just[…]
