Matt Muse “Myself”

Matt Muse has released a video for the track “Myself (Philautia II)” from his recently released EP, Love & Nappyness, that finds himself literally spending time with himself.

Here is how Matt approached the video for one of our favorite tracks from his EP. “The concept of the video is basically me taking the time with Myself to take care of Myself. The version of myself who appears in the beginning is the regular me who needs to take time to work on my insecurities. The second Matt (with the visor and polo) represents the embodiment of the positive traits and characteristics that I struggle to address/big up when I'm down and having low self-esteem. The second Matt is spending the video teaching the regular Matt how to take care of himself (Myself). I directed the video and it was shot by Interwine Productions. I wanted the video to be really funny and fun to watch.”

Leland Philpot "Countertrap"

Local Emcee and Producer Leland Philpot released his latest mixtape, “Countertrap”, late last month. His production is spot on and infectious while his lyrics range from fun to very introspective. He is clearly a man of strong faith and shares that joy and pain that accompanies that faith.

Philpot will be performing at an End of Summer Party at 47th and Vincennes on August 30th.

New Track: "System Error" (Feat. Moor Mother) - Zonal

Philly experimental sound sculptor and emcee Moor Mother is featured on multiple track of Wrecked, the forthcoming full-length album from Zonal, the collaborative project of God Flesh/Jesu's Justin K. Broadrick and electronic producer Kevin Martin (The Bug, King Midas Sound). Below is the initial offering from the LP, called "System Error". It's a pulsating, mesmerizing, ominous reminder of how completely broken our current system is. The lead single is also accompanied by shadowy visual imageries that you can totally zone out to on this Monday while avoiding work. Wrecked is scheduled for release on September 20 via Relapse Records.
