For your listening pleasure

Solipsistic Nation is a regular podcast that features the best of all genres of electronic music. Host Bazooka Joe was kind enough to focus his latest ‘cast on that most beloved of (sub)genres, nerdcore hip-hop. It features songs and interviews from the likes of MC Frontalot, Utraklystron, Beefy, High-C, YTCracker, funky49, and Ham-STAR. The delicious style and production also makes Radio Free Hipster sound like it was recorded using two tin cans and a length of string. (But I ain’t bitter!)

What I’m saying is listen to it. You will not be disappointed.

The greatest and most heart-felt thanks go out to Joe for this endeavor. He’s a good man with an excellent podcast who obviously put a lot of time, care, and effort into spreading the good news of nerdcore. Y’all show him some nerd love.

And speaking of pretty things to listen to, I neglected to include in my last news update yet another instrumental masterpiece free for the taking. Nerdcore MC Benjamin Bear is also known to dip his toes into the cool, relaxing waters of Ambient music. His release indicashadow - naptime (+bonus tracks) is freely downloadable and extraordinarily listenable. So ch-ch-ch-check-check it out.
