Under The Stares

This past fall, Dumbfoundead released his sophomore album, “Under The Stares.”  A more laid back album than his last one, this album shows the growth and maturity of Dumbfoundead’s style.  His range on beats have evolved as well.  Some tracks get into the dirty grimy beats you hear on the radio, “SCRAM,” to some electro sounding beats, “10 Ronds” and “It’s Not You.”  But overall, Dumbfoundead is known for the smoothness of his rhymes, as heard on the track “Growing Young” (shown below).

If you haven’t cop the album yet, pick it up on his website and the other following link listed below:

Until The Quiet Comes

Since I’ve been gone for a while doesn’t mean I stopped listening to good music.  “Until The Quiet Comes” dropped back in late September and early October and it’s a good album.  It’s a step above “Cosmogramma” and has a mixture of EDM, experimental, new wave jazz and hip hop all rolled into one.  Not a jazz/hip hop fusion of “Cosmogramma,” but still enjoyable.  Here’s some of my favorite tracks:
