Cloud Nothings – Attack on Memory


So good that Steve Albini, down for production duties, played Scrabble on his i-pad for the entire recording session – and the main man Dylan Baldi was only 20 when this came out. I’m tempted to stop there, so I will. More at http://skinnywhiteboy.blog.com

Southern rapper with ridiculous ability, a powerful network of hip hop Legends, and the boldness to make powerful political and social statements.

Euros Childs – Summer Special


So to my hero Euros Childs. His website is called the National Elf, and like our revered health system Euros is an underfunded national treasure capable of giving strength and healing all wounds. Ahem. More at http://skinnywhiteboy.blog.com

Donnie and Joe Emerson – Dreamin’ Wild


There’s quite a story to this record – which you can see via the link below. But whatever the history – and it is pretty amazing – this collection of teenage dreams from 1979 stands on its own two platform-booted feet.
