New Year, New Songs

We’re currently less than a week in, and already 2007 has seen some excellent new nerdcore tracks. Aside from the Router/funky49 track I mentioned previously, I’d also like to shine the light on a handful of others.

The long-awaited Ultraklystron/Nursehella collaboration has finally seen the light of day. Check out “Shoujo n’ Shonen,” the first single off Karl's forthcoming Romance Language. It’s important to note that this side trip to the nerdiest of dancehalls also comes compliments of the Baddd Spellah. Just when you think things can’t get any cooler!

You’ll also want to check out the new offering from Metamystiks, which features Bits of my favorite zombie combo Brainthirst. Not only does it remind you that Metamystiks Inc. is one of the strongest of the (far too few) links between nerdcore and alt-rap, but it also confronts a social issue head-on with the fierce blend of incomparable beats and elastic vocabulary that you've come to expect from the supergroup. Proceed to bob your head to “Jack Was Right,” an ode to Jack Thompson. That is not a typo.

Metamysiks fire-breather extraordinaire Super Dragon X also spits on recent Song Fight! winner “Shelton With Sunspots.” While the beat is provided by the enigmatically named TK (rather than DJ Snyder), the flow is classic SDX; albeit a side of the Dragon you may be unfamiliar with.

The above examples have me both elated and alarmed. If the output of such top-shelf tracks continues at this rate for the rest of the year, I’ll be reduced to a puddle of unsubstantiated goo by mid-March… a tuneful and satisfied puddle of unsubstantiated goo.

Great tracks! The Ultra-Nurse-Spellah one is going into my 'stealth nerdcore' kit.
