Run The Jewels 2 released early

The first RTJ was one of my favourite albums of 2013, and glad to find an email from Jaime (El-P) and Mike (Killer Mike) releasing RTJ2 a few days early. I guess you’ll still have to wait for Meow The Jewels though…yes RTJ2 with cats. It is a thing, as you can see from the trailer below.

Back to the feline-free RTJ2 release: a few listens and it’s great, a dark hiphop vibe just for Halloween, especially Oh My Darling Don’t Cry, Crown, Close Your Eyes (And Count to Fuck) with Zack De La Rocha and Early. Is it me or is there a trap/cloud rap feel to the production? (all the run-run-run stutters, and ‘fuck the slow mo’ digs?).

If you’re at all a fan of hiphop, you need this. You can download it here.

Space Lady Live

I missed that Radio Clash fave Space Lady aka Susan Dietrich was touring earlier in the year, and even came to the UK! Drat! Here’s the cover that made her famous, stealing Major Tom from Peter Schilling, live busking in 2013.

In fact Night School have released a Greatest Hits last year? Last to know, as usual! I’ve just ordered the 2CD version because I <3 Space Lady so much.

Child what happened?

Loving the new(ish) 2 Bears album ‘The Night Is Young’ and this track ‘Get Out’ in particular. Resonance on stun! Love the Hair Bear Bunch video, also.

Radical Face – The Mute

This song and video by Radical Face reminds me a lot of my childhood, more than it should… (Radical Face via Counter Sparkle)
