Jordan Butler – Bear Markets and Bull

About 7 months ago, back when I was broke and unemployed, Jordan Butler delivered an irrisistable mix of poetry and hip-hop in the form of ‘Makeshift Knives’. Fastforward to a time of afleuence and positivity, where, incredibly,  I have no employer and no cash, and Butler has unloaded another round of vocal ammunition in our […]

Slumped Mix Tape Three – Free Download

I know that near enough two weeks without an entry is close to unforgivable, so I shall do the best I can to redeem myself. Although it only seems like yesterday since SIAC2, May has been full to the brim with exciting and, more importantly, free music. To celebrate such a fine month, allow me […]

Raz Simone – Sometimes I Don’t

Usually I post a child-friendly mixture of electro-pop, indie and folk, and sometimes I don’t. Last year Seattle-based duo Sam Lachow and Raz Simone dropped the ‘5 Good Reasons’ EP to an expectant fanbase, receiving widespread acclaim for the quality of work and racking up nearly 15,000 downloads. Fast forward six months and Raz has […]

OCD: Moosh and Twist – Top of the World

Philadelphia duo Moosh and Twist, or ‘OCD’ as they are collectively known, are childhood friends-come hip-hop superstars in waiting. Their mixtapes have been turning heads and pricking ears for the last couple of years and this week saw their latest effort ‘Back to the Basement’ released via DatPiff. Much like their previous releases, OCD have […]

The Stoops – Buried Alive

There is no better way to celebrate Slumped In a Corner’s new look than with a new sound. Recent focus has been on summer tunes and bouncy electro-pop but today is as good a day as any to go a little off piste and flirt with a soulful hip-hop number. Australian collective The Stoops are […]

Slumped Mix Tape Two – Free Download

It’s been a long time coming (11 months to be precise) but today marks the momentous occasion of SIAC’s second mix tape. Basically a compilation of tracks from the past month or so which can be legally downloaded from various sources, all tidied up into one nice little bundle. Let’s all hope that these tracks […]

Pez – The Game

It’s hard to believe that it has been over four years since we saw Pez release his masterful ‘A Mind of My Own’ back in 2008. Since then he has faced problems with his health, formed his own record company and been confronted with the notoriously difficult prospect of creating a second album. 2013 will […]

Biz Markie – Just a Friend

Today I’ve decided to show just how much of a sheep I truly am and jump aboard the ‘throwback’ express. Although I’ve uploaded a few tracks that have been fluttering about for a number of years, ‘Just a Friend’ shows me venture into the Eighties for the first time and, given that I was born […]

Die Antwoord – Enter The Ninja

For me 2009 was a good year. Spent largely in student bars and in ‘dorm rooms’ quite a percentage of my time was taken up listening to new music, and somehow, one track that seemed to completely bypass me, but seemingly had been picked up by everyone else on the entire planet was Die Antwoord’s […]

Earl Sweatshirt – Chum

Earl Sweatshirt is a pedigree rapper, with his father a famous South African poet and his fellow Odd Future members Tyler The Creator and Frank Ocean part of hip-hop royalty, Sweatshirt has both inherent and acquired skills that set him apart from his contemporaries. After a number of collaborations within the Odd Future collective and […]
