Music Is A Higher Revelation Than Philosophy
Last time, I didn't post much in the way of mp3 links---so I guess this is my way of overcompensating...
Lemon-Red posted several tracks on Lamborghini Doors: http://hollertronix.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=3287 . If nothing else, make sure you cop "My Man Is A Mean Man", by Sharon Jones and the Dap-Kings.
Solesides has finally rotated some of their selection of free mp3 downloads:
http://www.solesides.com/. Last time I checked, a couple of the links weren't working properly, but "Getting It Together" by Lyrics Born and Tommy Guerrero is definitely obtainable. I personally am diggin' this song like a grave, but don't venture into it expecting to hear Lyrics getting his rhyme on---his style on the track is much more akin to drunken, scat-like crooning.
Last Night An Mp3 Saved My Wife is featuring "When Bernie Speaks" by Bootsy Collins and Bernie Worrell: http://lastnightanmp3savedmywife.blogspot.com/. This track is from the soundtrack to the film Moog, a documentary about the king of synthesizers. As most of you already know, Bob Moog just passed away several days ago:
So Much Silence posted a song from the upcoming Blackalicious LP, The Craft. The track is called "Your Move", and features the Portland duo Lifesavas: http://www.somuchsilence.blogspot.com/.
The ultra-fabulous Spine Magazine has a new mp3 from Moka Only's new album, called "Soup's On": http://www.spinemagazine.com/index.php?task=. I usually don't get all that excited by Moka's music, but the presence of MF Doom on the cut convinced me to give it a listen anyway. Overall, it's a pretty dope track, but it's edible essence makes it seem like a potential leftover from MM Food. While you're visiting Spine, make sure you get the mp3s that are extra material from Late Registration. Sometimes Kanye's trash outshines the treasure of his peers.
The last link I'm going to hit you up with is a spot where you can obtain some quality spoken word material. Free Tacoma currently has mp3s featuring Noam Chomsky, Jello Biafra, and one of my favorite comedians--Mitch Hedberg (RIP): http://champion.biznautics.com/.
Don't sleep---this is some quality shit we're talking about here...
