Blue Sky Black Death - "II" ft. Child Actor

New MusictheneedledropComment

Seattle electronic music duo Blue Sky Black Death have taken things in a new direction with their new album Glaciers. Oh, their music is as lush and as chill as ever, but this new effort sees the twosome crafting sprawling ambient and instrumental hip hop odysseys that range from 8 to 14 minutes in length. Above, give a listen to the LP's second track, featuring a captivating vocal performance from Child Actor.

Glaciers is out now via Fake Four, and can be streamed in its entirety here. Enjoy!

Moodie Black - Self-Titled

New Musicadmin2 Comments

Some grimy, experimental hip hop from this new, self-titled Moodie Black EP, which you can stream via the widget above. The EP is a recent released on the New Haven-based record label Fake Four Inc., which is the home to some pretty creative minds in underground hip hop. Moodie Black, unquestionably, lives up to the label's reputation with noisy, fuzzed out beats that dish out one rough texture after another.

The verses and vocal delivery accurately fit the dismal, eerie picture the instrumentals paint, too--even though there are times when they seem semi-drowned out by all the ruckus.

It's a short release, just five tracks, and available via a pay-what-you-want deal on Bandcamp right now.
