*Intelligence should be used for the benefit of humanity. Templates of drum and bass but tweeked beyond recognition, San Francisco’s Lesser delivers crunchy snares and overdriven bass frequencies with a heaping helping of skeptical humor, gritty digital noise, and DIY instrument-building ingenuity. Confrontational “intelligent” “electronic” “dance” “music.” Comes with “art” that you won’t understand.”
I once saw Jason Doerck cover Master of Puppets with A Minor Forest. It was one of the best things ever.
Stressful, busy day at work today. Somewhere in the middle of the afternoon I shut the door to my office and put my headphones on. Blared Karp into my ears while I worked. Made my whole day much better. Listening to Karp is like mainlining espresso.
Morning to neighbors Yes, I’m going to get a dog, a big dog One turd repels traffic, Spoils make-up, Ruins hairdo Helicopters can’t get in close to neutralize I’ll get a big dog, He’ll bark even as he naps, His bite will be venomous, Cellulysis proteases phosphoesterases, Leaving only splintered pitted bones, And hydrolized ooze of ex-part-objects Insurance won’t cover it I’ll feed him acidarma, Dissolves real estate
Down by Law is the debut album by East Coast hip hop artist MC Shan. Released at the height of the Bridge Wars, a feud between artists from Queensbridge (such as MC Shan) and South Bronx (such as KRS-One), the album contains various dis tracks. The most prodigious of these disses are “Kill That Noise” and “The Bridge,” which was later re-created as “Da Bridge 2001” by various Queensbridge artists. The album is produced by Marley Marl. It was the only Cold Chillin’/Warner Bros. album that was never initially released on CD by its distributor. The album was not released on the compact disc format until 1995, long after the 5-year distribution deal with Warner Bros. Records ended. By this time Cold Chillin’ became independent and distributed its material solely, mostly from its back catalog. This CD pressing would only be available for a limited time and went out of print for a few years.
Edit: I think this might be a truncated file, but it’s still 5:02.

Okay, here’s my one NMH post. I’ve held off long enough and have nearly pulled the post trigger several times since I started this thing. It’s not that I don’t want to share such greatness. It’s just my assumption that anyone following my stream is probably already into them. So here it is.
BTW, pgwp, I still remember the week this album came out and your insistence that we listen to it in store. I gave you a hard time because you were interrupting our usual space rock evenings or spazz rock. Anyway, it didn’t take long for me to realize how amazing this album was, and seeing them live not too much later only solidified that belief.
My all time favorite skateboard deck was a Natas Kaupas panther deck (circa 88) because the tail was so perfect for sending me airborne over objects. This song is nothing like a skateboard deck, but this is the tail of the album and it makes me want to go airborne.
