Hip Hop with a conscience, from the Bronx: Prince Metropolis Known

Prince Metropolis Known is a lion.  He has a mane, man; he’s the king of the beasts! He’s a political animal, but he also boasts to “Party with blood suckers, bbw hot sex in tubs of butter - the Prince of Dubia. Royal fetish, gold letters, tomatoes and silver - the Prince of Dubia.”  He once made an album entirely dedicated to dissing Bill O’Reilly.  THE AZEALIA BANKS GANG BANG takes up where his War Against Music and KILL BILL albums left off.  It’s the perfect platform for the Lion to utilize his practiced misogyny to lash out against the Trump advocate rapper and her ilk.  The first track (streaming) repeatedly lambasts her for not being Nicki Minaj.  It’s ignorant rap with a conscience.  What else would you accept from Kool Keith’s most promising protege? Check out also the outstanding 2013 video/single 'Metropolis' from 2013. - BrokeMc





Taiwan Housing Project Sign to Kill Rock Stars

Congrats to noise-punks Taiwan Housing Project for signing to Kill Rock Stars! The revered indie label announced that they'll be releasing the band's EP Three Song Record, which originally surfaced via M'Lady's Records as a self-titled seven-inch. Willfully inaccessible and unapologetically harsh, feel free to take the album for a spin (once again) below. It just might be what you need today to shake off the recent horrific Trump announcement of white nationalist/antisemite/"alleged" domestic abuser Steve Bannon's appointment to the position of White House Chief Strategist. We haven't been overreacting. This isn't normal. Don't let them fool you into thinking that it is. Let's get ready for a battle, folks.





A Deli NYC premiere: Ghost King's 'Melting Sky / Inside Out' single

Brooklyn's Ghost King tickled our aural canal the right way this past spring with their debut album 'Bones,' which was immediately crowned with our NYC Record of the Month title, and we are thrilled to premiere their two track single entitled 'Melting Sky / Inside Out." Their sound is still as distorted and effected as it gets, in a way that's definitely nineties, but more reminiscent of the early Flaming Lips and Mercury Rev's fuzzy psychedelic lunacy than Pavement or Dinosaur Jr.'s pop slacking. Opening track 'Melting Sky' travels at high speed, hosting a slow vocal melody, and progressively building towards two psychedelic instrumental bridges. 'Inside Out' displays a poppier structure and catchier melody, but also a more dissonant arrangement, evolving, through a very early-Pink-Floydian transition, into a distorted bass driven, pummeling finale. They are both songs that will be fun to experience live when Ghost King will perform at Shea Stadium on 11.28 - do not miss!

Carroll LP Release Show at The Barbary Nov. 11

Psych-pop quartet Carroll impresses with the release of their sophomore record, As Far As Gardens Grow. The LP reveals serenading vocals, pristine keys, rhythmically vibrant guitars and bass lines, and whimsically-crafted songwriting from the Minneapolis transplants. The album was mixed by Jon Lo (The National, Sharon Van Etten), who was the inspiration behind their relocation, and it is now available via Shattered Orb Records. Carroll will be celebrating its arrival this evening at their Weathervane Music-presented album release party at The Barbary. They'll also be joined by Brooklyn-based garage-pop trio THICK and Petunia, the solo project from local singer-songwriter John Ryan. The Barbary, 951 Frankford Ave., 7pm, $7-$10, 21+ - Bill McThrill
