Let's Hear it for The Boy(s)

Regular readers of this blog know that I have a very limited vocabulary. There are words that pop up fairly regularly, proper nouns that represent the cutting edge of nerdy music. Names like Frontalot, Beefy, Random, and the like.

You’re just as apt to know another couple of names, a pair that, though not attached to nerdy hip-hoppers or geek rockers, are still very much linked with nearly everything that goes on here at Hipster, please! Church and Matt feed me leads concerning everything from nerdy politics to new releases, give suggestions for additions to the podcast track lists, and, perhaps most importantly, act as the sounding board concerning my various hair-brained schemes.

This week they’ve both got some pretty interesting projects of their own going on, and I thought I’d shine the light on them… Which is a nice change of pace considering it’s usually those two pimping out my stuff.

Matt’s got a new piece up at the reinvigorated (Hopefully!) Headphone Sacrament. It’s a review of Slytherin Hearts, the Split Seven Ways EP that I mentioned yesterday. It gives an overview of the work, the artist, and her place within the scene.

Church – known thereabouts as Pike – has put together a DIY mixtape for the cats over at Galactica Watercooler. Essentially it’s an outline to make your own playlist using free, nerdy tracks that are easily available online. There are some old favorites as well as some new hotness.

Since this is a bit of a slow news day for items not related to a very languid GDC, I’d say that both of these demand your immediate attention.

And we're apparently failing you as news feeders. ;)

Matt said...

Awww, I feel special! :)

The funniest thing is that we're the only ones who have actually commented here. :)

OK, I really need to go to bed.

Did you read the wholly substandard GDC fare yesterday Church? By comparison this stuff was genuine entertainment! :)

Don't fret, Matt, everyone else is merely intimidated by your ultimate geekitude.

You're supposed to tell me when I need to bring my hip waders.
