NEW MUSIC: Trash Talk's latest 'No Peace' is best hardcore record of the year so far. #SoundCheck

As anyone who saw Trash Talk's bone crushing set at Afropunk Fest 2013 can attest, there's just about no-one in the modern hardcore scene on their level. Building on last year's triumphant 119, the band blends sludgy guitars with hip-hop nods with their straight-ahead hardcore on their latest No Peace.

NEW MUSIC: The Revolutionary Seun Kuti and Egypt 80's LP 'A Long Way To The Beginning' #SoundCheck

Family legacies are almost unheard of in the musical world. All too often, the children of famous musicians at best coast on the fact that they sort of look and sound like their dearly missed parents. (I'm looking at you, Julian Lennon, Ziggy Marley, and debatably Jakob Dylan...) It's no surprise that some of the most successful children of musicians have deliberately veered away from their parents' territory (shout out to Neneh Cherry). For Seun Kuti, the youngest son of Afrobeat… Continue

FREE DOWNLOAD: Millsted is back with two new singles! #SoundCheck

12 years in, and you'd think a band like Millsted would be out of ideas and out of passion. (Granted there was a bit of a hiatus in there.) That kind of fire can only burn so bright for so long. But the two singles released from their forthcoming LP Harlem show that time has only sharpened their fury and righteous noise.

NEW MUSIC: Senegalese Soul singer Faada Freddy's 'Untitled' EP Is All About "Body Percussion"

This fall, Faada Freddy will be releasing his album The Gospel Journey, but like any artist who adores both their craft and their loyal fans, he has not forced us all to wait several more months for a new project by way of the four tracks Untitled EP. It is a delightfully compact body of work. Utterly ingenious. No instruments are used in this EP but it is far from empty sounding. In fact, it is completely the opposite, thanks to a captivating mix a vocals and…
