Electricity is on our Side, by BUSDRIVER
Drawing from memory and community roots, the 10th album from rap innovator BUSDRIVER plays out like an ode to modern folk art via the act’s characteristically warped take on the world’s leading pop music: hiphop. Homespun and bursting with intention, “electricity is on our side” argues that the quintessential underground hiphop album is in fact the high art of the day.// Electronic musics, jazz, hiphop and writing are once again minced into a unique configuration(underground social music) to achieve the aesthetic ends and messaging harnessed by the legendary BUSDRIVER.

Sadie Dupuis On 'Twerp Verse' And The Return Of Speedy Ortiz: Interview
Like many of us, Sadie Dupuis thought Hillary was going to win. Sure, her mother Diane would sometimes tell her about the plethora of Trump signs throughout the small Connecticut town where she lives. There's still one on the barn near her place. But when Dupuis took to the former Total Request Live stage on election night, she was completely confident it was all going to be fine.

Surprise: Sleep’s Dopesmoker Follow-Up Is Out Tomorrow, 4/20
Sleep love weed. The cover art for the stoner metal pioneers' second album, Holy Mountain, was based around a marijuana leaf. Their last album, Dopesmoker, consisted entirely of one hour-long song about smoking weed. There's a dedicated "Cannabis use" section on their Wikipedia page. And tomorrow, Sleep are celebrating 4/20, the international stoner holiday, by releasing their first album in over a decade. Surprise! The long-awaited follow-up to Dopesmoker (and their first new material since their 2014 Adult Swim single "The Clarity") is called The Sciences, and the band are releasing it on Jack White's Third Man Records. It includes a song called "Marijuanaut's Theme," because of course it does. Find the full tracklist and a list of Sleep's upcoming tour dates below. TRACKLIST: 01 "The Sciences" 02 "Marijuanaut's Theme" 03 "Sonic Titan" 04 "Antarcticans Thawed" 05 "Giza Butler" 06 "The Botanist" TOUR DATES: 05/15 Paris, France @ LE TRABENDO (PARC DE LA VILLETTE) 05/16 Bonn Düdingen,
