As a hip-hop fan growing up in The Bronx, I was grateful for my world full of quality music, with public access, cable (when videos played on a constant basis) and radio stations providing limited glimpses of hip-hop scenes in other cities. Now living on the West Coast, discovering the underground scene here has been a treasure trove. Attending the Back 2 Basics Fest a few weeks ago, I saw People Under the Stairs (Thes One and Double K) live and was blown away. Repping LA to the fullest with their ying-yang flows, they’ve put together an impressive career of eight albums, got immortalized on “The Simpsons”, performed over 1,000 shows on six continents including Bonnaroo where SPIN called their performance at the festival “simply the best performance of Friday…period”.

Releases: Trying to Keep a Good Thing Going

posted July 8, 2013, 7:22 am by Nathaniel Lathy | Filed Under Music News, Releases | comment Leave a Comment

The follow up isn’t the easiest way to please your fans. People want to hear a sound similar to the first album. The bar can be set high with an album such as the debut by Sleigh Bells. The second album didn’t grab me quite as much. It’s pretty amazing Vampire Weekend has been so consistent for three albums. Read more

Back in the day, when this place was crawling with forums and chats about random acts of music, we used to poll ourselves to see which release by an artist not only set them atop of the industry but stapled them in as musical gods. This week, we prose, which album is Bright Eyes’ best?

Where has the ROCKthusiast Gilles LeBlanc decided to spend part of his summer vacation? Why at the Quebec City Summer Festival, of course! Who wouldn’t want to walk cobblestoned by day and rock out with thousands of fellow music fans at night on a former battlefield? The only thing better would be if he’d file daily field reports while he was there…wait a minute, he IS, and Music Emissions readers (and listeners) are the lucky recipients of his firsthand cultural accounts. Enjoy his audio-rrific recaps!

Interview: Sage Francis

posted July 2, 2013, 8:46 am by Carlita | Filed Under Editorial, General Interest, Interviews | comment 1 Comment

As an avid (and nerdy) hip-hop concertgoer and poetry-lover, finding that combo in an artist is the best. Much has been written for decades on if hip-hop’s art, and can hip-hop be considered poetry and spoken word, with several weighing in on these topics (pseudo-intellectuals etc). One artist who fiercely stirs this debate up is Sage Francis. Doing research (um, listening to the artists’ music prior and loving it) to attend the Back 2 Basics Fest held in Southern California recently, I instantly became of a fan of Sage’s trademark brand of political, poetic and powerful discography and never looked back.
