Do you remember the track ‘Nocturnal’? That was our Pick Of The Week a while back by The Residents (Muneshine + Saint). Recently Domination Records decided to offer the full album for free!
Much respect to Braille (of the Lightheaded crew) for releasing this personal video. He talks openly about the divorce with his wife. I always thought they look like one big happy family, so this news came out of nowhere for me. We wish Braille all the best with getting his personal life back on track.
This year is a busy one for Uncommon Records. It’s funny, I’ve run this label since 2004, but I almost feel like in 2009 I really restarted things. Basically started a second chapter that is in it’s infancy now. Last year most of the label work was put into networking, developing a strategy for the future and rebuilding the label website from absolute scratch.
Yesterday a new independent label called Jus Like Music Records dropped its first release. It’s the debut single by producer/songwriter/keyboard player BUG. The single ‘Cosmic Lab / 20 Winks’ is available as a free download on Bandcamp.

Soon Melting Pot Music releases ‘Hi-Hat Club Volume 3’. This time it’s done by Dexter with the title ‘The Jazz Files’.

Below you can watch the new teaser, featuring two songs off the album.
Meet Magnolius, a creative up-and-coming hip hop duo from Toronto, Canada. With their most recent album ‘Mary Musth’, the crew has gotten quite decent recognition. And why not? Track after track of mind-blowing mic performance and instrumentals like you’ve never heard before. Magnolius: “hip hop is better than it has ever been and we’re just here to make some cut-throat new sh*t.”
It’s no secret that we love the releases Brainfeeder and Alpha Pup Records drop. One of their upcoming releases we’re looking forward to, is ‘Righteous Fists Of Harmony’ by Daedelus. While anticipating this upcoming mini-album, we got the opportunity to hear the 8 tracks and for your pleasure, we highlight one of the songs in this edition of our Pick Of The Week!

No, Nicholas Kopernicus is not a pasty white Olympic hockey player, nor is he a future, never heard before 7 foot Polish center being looked at for next year’s NBA draft. Surprisingly, Nicholas Kopernicus is a instrumental duo that consists of Producer/Pianist/Songwriter Jason “classicbeatz” Minnis and Guitarist/Songwriter Seon Gomez (Yes, he was also a Polish astronomer).
