Willie Green drops new album and feathered octopus.

Not since Dabrye’s two/three has a producer collected such a monstrous and diverse group of rappers and pushed them out of their comfort zones and into the further realms of phantasmagoria. In the video for “The Feathered Octopus,” the first of hopefully a whole series from his new Doc Savage EP, Brooklyn producer wunderkind Willie Green provides a polyrhythmic backdrop for two of indie hip hop’s preeminent lyricists to wax intangibles. Like the album, the vid is rife with hip hop cameos. Watch repeatedly, you will be wrestling with more than the language. - BrokeMc





Buzz Alert: Pool Cosby subverts the rules of pop with 'Little Do They Know'

We always enjoy quirky pop songs, but Pool Cosby, a Brooklyn sample-based electronic trio that popped up in our NYC homepage 'NYC New Bands With Buzz' chart, have pulled off something quite rare in single/video 'Little Do They Know:' they married quirkness and emotion. A warm, loungy atmosphere introduces a beautifully delicate melody sung by... a Micky Mouse relative of sorts, singing semi-unintelligible lyrics. As counter-intuitive as that sound, the song is so perfectly produced that we soon found ourselves sincerely captivated by this mysterious creature and his/her emotional depth. The video makes this process even easier, for those enjoying the ladies... and we'll leave it at that. The group is no one hit wonder - their single 'Lookin' Up ft. Valentein" recently charted at #12 on Spotify's United States Viral 50. The band is active live but currently has no shows scheduled.





Allison Crutchfield and the Fizz Step Up to the Plate at Everybody Hits Oct. 1

Allison Crutchfield’s vast musical output has been felt as a part of (the recently reunited) P.S. Eliot and the fierce, gritty, enthusiastic Swearin’ as well as Waxahatchee. Tonight, Crutchfield and her backing band the Fizz step up to the plate at Everybody Hits. Slated to release a yet-to-be-named album - courtesy of Merge Records early next year, she can sit back, allowing the lyrical honesty take the lead among a pensive percussive backdrop or conversely rear back as a heavier fast-paced tenacity rushes forward. Crutchfield and her bandmates will also be joined by the combustible psych-grunge merging of The Spirit of the Beehive and the melodic snarl of pop-punk trio Eight to get the festivities rolling. Everybody Hits, 529 W. Girard Ave., 9pm, $10, All Ages - Michael Colavita





Weekend Warrior, September 30 - October 2

Delicate is a concise characterization of the new album from Hello Shark, a.k.a. Linc Halloran. Officially released today via Chicago’s Orindal Records, the album plays like an unhinged door into Halloran’s head. Lyrically keen observations, anecdotes, and imagery paint an autumnal exposure as the songs mimic the soon-to-be sparsely-adorned trees. One gravitates toward the uninhibited exposure reminiscent to Pavement and Bright Eyes, as that relatable, melodic sense of melancholy aches with honesty and shivers with warmth. Encoding the fresh breath of catharsis with dense yet airy pockets of samples and instrumentation, Power Animal, a.k.a. Keith Hampson, captivates, while the enchanting, low-key serenade of Seattle’s Mega Bog and the bright but turbulent tones of Baltimore’s Amanda Glasser complete this billing.
