Interviews

Our interview with Sahtyre.
I first met Sahtyre as this dude who walked up and introduced himself as, well, Sahtyre. I couldn't tell if he was being satirical. It was at a house party in Echo Park where I rapped on a lawn with no shoes on. Also Sole performed but seemed kind of annoyed when I tried to talk to him. I've been told, that's Sole. I would run into Sahtyre again and again. It's not like we were buds, but the...
Our album premiere and Interview with the Wrecking Crew MC, and Cat Jedi Master,
Curly Castro is a man with a wolverine's growl, a samurai's sharpness, a nerd's layered comic book references, and a film buffs knowledge of characters and quotes. He is a key member of the Philidelphia based Wrecking Crew along with Zilla Rocca, Has-Lo, Small Professor, Castle and PremRock. He spits with fire, frustration and passion in every rhyme. He raises two ninja cats, has locks,...

As bloggers it is easy to forget about the grind that the artists we cover go through just to get a record in our greasy meat mitts. We forget that each song is not just composed of the emotions and musical talents of the artist but also the blood, sweat, and tears of seemingly endless physical labor. It is so much easier to be on the listening end, passing our pompous judgments from the comfort...

It seems like 100 years ago that Arizona "noise rap" outfit Moodie Black first dropped Nausea on Fake Four, Inc. It's felt like that to them to. And we're the ones lucky that it did. Because, like Drake if Drake was possessed by the devil in Ms. Jones, Moodie Black have surprise premiered a brand new batch of boombasticness with their new EP, MBII. With the noise level turnt way up, the...

Someone needs to run to the state of Minnesota, the cities of St. Paul and Minneapolis and bottle what the Fuck ever is running through thier water supply ASAP (no rocky)!!! If it isn't the Pappy's of indie rap grinding Atmosphere, or the X-Men of rap Doomtree, it's the pizza/weed/yoga master Ecid spitting that mid-western frame of mind like only someone who freezes his balls...

Tom's SYFFAList for May 2015

Okay, it's time to get this chin back in the swing of things.

This spring has been insane. I've neglected Syffal. I've neglected the Syffalist. I've neglected the Syffal staff.....especially Lang because I haven't been there for support to help him through his unhealthy porn addiction....

Low Cut Connie, Tonic Room, Chicago, concert

Low Cut Connie @ The Tonic Room in Chicago on 5/30

Because I'm getting old(er) I only committ to a concert if I'm 95% certain it's going to singe my ballhairz. AND I don't go to big venues because Fuck big venues. If I wanted to watch a concert on a jumbotron I'd stay home and watch Palladia. Thus, standing room only is a must...

Pandora + Vegas = Krewella party @ Park West on 5.14.15

I've been part of the Pandora game since it launched back in the early 2000s. It's definitely been a great device for hearing things from musicians you have never heard of, who will end up blowing up.

Point in case - Krewella.

Albeit, EDM, but when Pandora and Las...

GET OFF MY LAWN - Welcome to the Tribe

Over the past few months I have been thinking a lot about the idea of the tribe, and how much we define ourselves by our tribe, our people. I used to scoff at such an idea, it was something that I saw as limiting, and I guess it can be if you let it become your identity and assimilate into some...

One Song: Sick of Sarah - Blind

Through the miracles of modern technology I was given an opportunity to check out the new EP Anthem by Sick of Sarah. Like a mens swimsuit from the 60's it has me fully exposed. The rest of you peasants will have to wait until the end of June for the release but feel...

GET OFF MY LAWN - STOP BEING A PANIC RIDDLED A$$HOLE
