Adullesence- Something Real

No more reality.

Is Topeka the next hip hop hot spot? I raved about the Kansas capital's Stik Figa three months ago. Now it's Adullesence's turn. "Something Real," one of the tracks on his free download, opens with a deep breath and is anchored by a vintage soul sample. It deserves an audience beyond the state of Kansas. Stik Figa and Adullesence also collaborate under The Only Ones banner.

I reviewed last night's Motorhead, Misfits and Valient Thorr concert.

I caught John Mayall and the Bluesbreakers at Knuckleheads on Friday night.

Kansas City rapper James Christos created a credible video for "Higher (Opus 13)."

A Grand Don't Come For Free was my favorite album of 2004 but the Streets' subsequent output has disappointed me. I have high hopes for the new release based on the free (tagged) download of "The Escapist" from Vice. The video is almost perfect.

Harry Dean Stanton plays the role of an obsessive Bob Dylan bootlegger in a new video for Dylan's "Dreamin' of You."

Kansas City Click: Baltimore's Wye Oak strum at the Record Bar tonight. They're joined by The Expassionates.

Anytime I hear or read the name Henry Dean Stanton, I'm there.

Wonder who shot the video? Very Roger Deakins like. It really sets the mood and tone of the song.

Glad to get the confirmation, BGO. You should check out the Streets video, too. If you don't dig the music, just play Bob over the evocative images.
