Friday: The Eastern Sea @ The Basement

I’ve never met the Austin, Texas band The Eastern Sea but if sounds tell the story, I bet they are really nice guys. I know another band of really nice guys – Death Cab for Cutie – who I saw perform at Bernie’s “back in the day” (an old guy like me can say that and truly mean it) and I remember them sincerely thanking the audience for paying attention after each and every song. It comes as no surprise, then, that The Eastern Sea sort of occupies that same sonic space as Death Cab – nice and dreamy guitars, pretty harmonies, very non-threatening vocals.

What’s Really Good Columbus?!

Obviously the big story today is the OSU football game. Throw your rah-rag up.
Well, after the bucks win, whether you head to a parade, a festival, a BW3 or take a nap, try to come out to the Daymon Day Parade Afterparty.
Columbus legends The Fonosluts and DJ True Skillz will team up with Get Right Columbus, CJ Townsend and Iyeball of Fly Union to do it like they use to do , and continue to.
New School x Old type jump-off.
CJ and Iyeball will be coming returning from New York tonight where Iyeball’s rap group Fly Union and CJ just performed at Santo’s Party House for a BET Music Matters Showcase.
Daymon was a mentor for Fly Union, obviously a member of the Fonosluts, and he was also in BSA along with the Get Right Columbus fam.
Daymon would be proud of both Get Right, Fly U’s success, and be stoked to see Hip Hop culture in Columbus flourishing.(this is just the tip of the iceberg.)
So it should be fun.

MP3:DJ Przm Presents the Letter Peopl

Today is the Three Year Anniversary of DJ Przm passing. Cashola uploaded one of Przm’s classic compilation’s the Letter People to the Get Right Blog about an hour ago.
Przm would produce 18 song albums and sell them at the Fonoluts Hip Hop night until he lost interest in them, and then these cds would dissappear. I think 50 copies of the Letter People existed and I’ve had it stolen from me twice, and i probably stole a copy from someone at some point. So i am really happy Cashola uploaded it.
Pos can correct me, but this cd is prolly from 2000-2001.
The cd itself is raw, minimal Hip Hop that invokes but doesn’t bite Wu Tang, Pharoah Monche if he was an asshole and Mobb Deep.
For younger doods, imagine 30 black doods(a couple white doods) that could rap, dress, pull a fly girl,drink and fight partying at Bernie’s and on like Blake and Patterson.(OSU campus for non-Columbus people.Which is now Twee or jocks.) Continue reading

MP3:Meta4ce-Monsta Musik

MP3:Meta4ce-Monsta Musik(Unmixed)

Columbus rapper Meta4ce came a step closer to winning a million dollars  on Sunday. MTV2 aired his second battle. He slayed dood. (we are still locating the video but you can watch the video of the first battle  here on donewaiting).  The above MP3(Monsta Musik) off of Meta4ce’s upcoming mixtape, has Young Meta describing the horrible things that he is capable of, very rabidly.

Meta4ce needs everyone to vote for him by texting Motv to 99134.
