I stumbled across a few poems by Charlie Braxton this morning, on Specter Magazines website. They are from a little over a year ago, but that’s the beauty of art, it is always relevant. Mr Braxton is a poet, journalist, writer and author who has been published in just about every medium you can imagine. He is a brilliant writer.
Jesus on the RTD
While riding the RTD
Jesus Christ appeared to me
Like the physical manifestation
Of my third eye
Apparently he was
Still looking for lost souls
The secret words of sacred power to
All alone the son of man sat
On a seat next to the
His bloodshot eyes forever fixed on
The direction of the rising sun
“to the east my brother
to the east…”
but few people caught the wisdom
of his holy words
because few people cared
enough to hear
or either they were too scared
so the savior
having been reject for a third time
stopped off at the next stop
to cast his pearls elsewhere
Andy Mineo is a Christian artist on Reach Records. “Tug of War” is an intimate look at a believer who is struggling with his duty to God and his weakness of flesh. Mineo attacks the track with the with the wisdom of a sage yet the vulnerability of a man. Strange Music’s Krizz Kaliko delivers on the hookThanks to Ulogy (Vintage Noize) for pointing this album out to me. Andy Mineo’s album Heroes For Sale came out this year on Reach Records, the home of Lecrae, KB, Trip Lee and others. It is a very solid effort, the Brooklyn emcee shows a generous amount of maturity as well as the very personal side of being a Christian. If you have the time I suggest giving the album below a whirl.
I DO NOT even know where to begin with this. So here goes, Macaulay Culkin has a band, this band happens to be a Velvet Underground cover band. The fun does not stop here, instead of just covering Velvet Underground songs they go further and re-create VU songs into songs about pie, Pizza Pie that is. The track list includes such titles as “Papa John Says”, “I’m Waiting For The Delivery Man, “Take A Bite Of The Wild Slice” (Which features a wicked Culkin Kazoo solo) and more on their 9 minute demo….
This is pure genius I swear…..If you do anything at all today listen to this. Just for the record though, I DO NOT support drug usage……….. unless this is the result…….no no I’m kidding, wait am I?
“Heavily Medicated” is the first single from Shay Briggs’ album Interphase, and is produced by Ant Stew from New Orleans. The song serves as a warning about the pitfalls of the ever growing drug culture. With the growing trend within the Hip Hop culture, it’s nice to see an upcoming artist take up the task of revealing the consequences of those decisions which are being made. Check out another track from Interphase below, “Serious”, it should give you enough of an idea about her album to run out and cop it.
