Vonnegutt: The Appetizer EP

Here it is, the official debut EP from Vonnegutt. Three tracks you’ve heard before (1 remix), but mastered in the studio and it shows. Not to mention the long-awaited release of one of my favorites “Here We Go Again”. You’ve most likely been listening to the free demos for over a year, so head over […]

Kyle Lucas: Its Always Sunny In Marietta Mixtape

Its long overdue, but its finally here. Some of these tracks have shown up on this site throughout the year (“Control”, “Purple Ribbon Rep”, “Queen of Apologies”) but most are brand new. They also have Big Boi’s signature of approval. Based on recent previews via uStream sessions, I can attest that “So High”, “Speak To […]

2009 Wrap-Up: The Year in Concerts

One last list…and here we go. I saw a few shows in 2009, not as many as the previous year, but don’t think I wasn’t tempted. I still say Detroit has better overall venues, but Atlanta draws better names (1st Quarter of 2010 looks ridiculous too). Below are 4 shows I saw worth writing about […]

2009 Wrap-Up: Top Hip-Hop 13 Tracks of 2009

I probably shouldn’t even list these as “top hip-hop tracks” because I really haven’t heard everything in the world of hip-hop this year. Drake caused every rapper to want to do a decent mixtape, or put out a song a week or whatever. There were a lot of new artists in the rap game this […]
