DC Rapper Noochie is making waves

Hard beats, hard lyrics, hard flow; Noochie’s raw, minimalist sound reflects the rapper’s street tough charisma. With songs focusing on his DC heritage, Noochie hopes to be the next DC rap sensation. After grabbing some national exposure with the music video for the song “Gutta”, Noochie is optimistic, telling an interviewer in XXL, “I’m going to be the next one. When he walk into the room that’s him right there, he got it. Like Neo in The Matrix, un-$#%&-witable.”

Here’s the music video for Noochie’s “Gutta”.

New Lowland Hum album offers intimate but well produced minimalist folk

Making engaging music from nothing but vocals, guitar, and piano is not easy. It requires skill to be able to give a convincing performance despite the absence of a real rhythm section. To this end, Charlottesville, Virginia brother/sister duo Lowland Hum succeeds wonderfully. Lovely vocals, good arranging, and excellent production values help carry their sound over the hurdles on their new album, Thin.

Here’s “In Flight” from Lowland Hum’s new album, Thin, which drops today.

Cornel West Theory shows potential on “MR COLVIN (sir)”

Cornel West Theory’s “MR COLVIN (sir)” starts out with an attention grabbingly raw, expletive heavy introduction, segueing into a truly funky beat, just begging to have rhymes dropped over it. To this end, the group does not disappoint, delivering some hard and fast poetry over the beautiful instrumental track. In short, the first two minutes of the track are a slam dunk, truly cutting edge material; a great intro, an irresistibly funky beat, and smooth, hard flow.

Check out “Mr Colvin (sir)” by Cornel West Theory, from their album The T.A.B.L.E. TOO.
