“Something In The Water” is the latest video from Free Radio’s “The Powers That Be” album which you should already have. The rellies worked really hard and went in deep on this one so please share. Also look for a new album from Free Radio coming this summer.
From Al : “Live recording from a Show I played January 5th, 2013 at Milk Bar SF with the homie Alexander Spit and Bago sponsored by The Hundreds. All the songs are new and unreleased for the most part. Hope y’all dig it.”
Panama Jack is here, a new album with production from Micah Aza, Al Lover, Conceit, and more and features from Big Shawn of Bored Stiff & Brandon B of Trunk Drank. This gurptastic album is 7 tracks deep and once again completely free. Once again Fist Fam bridges the gap between the bay area and down south like no one else can.

“The idea behind the project is to take this current music and rework it into something entirely different while at the same time siting the source material directly, helping to create extended community within the underground music scene. To further share the inspiration for the project, it is available for free download, but also as youtube videos embedded to http://www.coolallover.com so that if interested, listeners can directly access the source material via the “related video” function on youtube. Also, embedded in the site will be direct links to each of the artist’s record labels so that listeners can order the albums that were sampled immediately if they so chose.
Permission to sample the material was given by all the artists.”
After making sure everything was perfect, Fist Fam is back with the new album, POSTED. Definetly worth the wait so tell everyone you know who like good music to grad a copy. Gurp City South bringing you that real shit, keeping vinyl alive.
This is all over the web but its too good not to post here as well.
From Al Lover: “So here it is, one last final free download of the year. This one might be my favorite, fuzzed out psychedelic boom-bap shit. Big ugly drunken drums, over spaced out, chopped samples run through pedals and totally reconfigured into distorted madness. No Pro-Tools plug-in magic here, just straight MPC work. The grimy shit, beautiful ugly music. Pretty weird, the only way to make a Beefheart tribute, I guess. It’s been a tough week trying to get this finished, but I’m glad to have it all done. This one’s for you Beefheart, hope you like it.” DOWNLOAD THE PROJECT FOR FREE HERE STREAM THE PROJECT ON BANDCAMP
Peace to Al Lover and Fist Fam, Posted album almost here, Gurp City South!
