Leather Corduroys – Porno Music Volume II: TSFR (EP)

Kami de Chukwu and Joey Purps actually released something for real today, this is not another April Fool’s akin to Demarcus Cousins releasing a mixtape or Google giving out jobs to America’s top Pokemon masters. “Bleed” sets the tone from the start, and the whole mixtape live up to the lead track. Beats have a very dark, Flatbush Zombies feel to them. Kami has long been an ACITM favorite, and this new duo with Joey Purps is heading in the right direction. Highlight is track 4, “Nightmare on Chicago Ave.” Check out the whole thing and let us know what you think.

SZA – Childs Play feat. Chance the Rapper

Another Chance post… but this time the song is courtesy of the first lady of TDE, SZA. Any time you do anything over XXYYXX’s “About You,” it’s probably going to sound good, but with SZA and Chano teaming up, the song is exceptional. SZA’s voice gives a hypnotizing vibe to the hazy sample, check it out below. Not the first time we have a SaveMoney rapper dropping a verse to the Canadian producer’s hit, Kami de Chukwu did so last year. SZA’s EP is due soon, and she’s on the packed Pitchfork as well.

Chance the Rapper – Home Studio (Back Up In This Bitch)

Chance has a home studio now and a production crew called Social Experiment. So obviously his latest song is called “Home Studio (Back Up in this Bitch)”.  Nate Fox and Nico Segal  produced, the track features Chano reflecting on some of his successes over the past year, how he’s got the labels telling him he’s not playing fair. The beat is funky, so get your dancing shoes out. Enjoy! Solo Chano is back up in this bitch, AND he’s got that Young Thug flow on too!

Week that Was (4-16-14)

This should probably be called the year that was, but to help with tagging, we’re sticking with “Week.” Away for some time, but getting back on track, expect more and more ACITM music coverage as I finish my studies and head back to what has become the mecca of music, Chicago. We’ve got an old favorite in The Ataris coming to town Friday night, with an Orwells homecoming in April.

Without further ado, let’s get to the music. Starting us off are Sunny Gicz and Gabe Niles, aka Sunny & Gabe, a Virginia duo that varies from a hazy overcast to a strong trip hop pounding bass. They’ve got a mixtape called “Free Candy” that’s available for download now. Expect new music soon from these two.

Sunny & Gabe – Godzilla
