Stream new releases from Castro, 8.bliss, Mod Orange, and more

Streams and downloads of the week

Castro’s Advanced Placement album is filled with some hard lyrics and smooth beats. “I’ll be on that paper-chase, pussy N*****s can’t relate, fucking let those n*****s hate, everyday,” he raps on “Everyday” Says it all, really.


8.bliss’ Freedom (beats: ep) is interesting stuff. The “Freedom Earth Bounce” track contains vocal samples from the old sci-fi horror movie They Live, which offers a good indication of the off-the-wall, zany nature of these hip-hop beats and loops.


Mod Orange’s Dusk is a strong, hugely catchy power-pop-punk record from a band that has forged a strong reputation over the four years of its existence. Heavy guitar hooks complement quirky, melodic vocals.


The Piece/Peace Keeper’s “Non Stop” is an instrumental hip-hop track that’s all heavy beats and vocal samples. You can imagine an MC using this to create something special, though it does work as a stand-alone track.


The Banshee Pilot’s “Tall Hot Blonde” is a very contemporary slice of post-hardcore from a local band with a big future. It’s a little identikit – soft verses lead to chugging riffs and big choruses. But you can imagine these guys on a Warped tour.


Pr. Deulineum’s “Praseodymium Deulineum II” is packed with psychedelic electronic music with a post-dubstep vibe. The pace picks up and then drops seemingly on a whim, and the helium vocal samples work perfectly.
