The Nobody Really Knows crew, of which Potholes Music's own Jay Cue is a member, just keeps on dropping that ill, forward-thinking music. Their tunes never cease to reside in one genre, as they hop from hip-hop to soul to jazz to funk to psychedelia without so much as a warning. And they do it seamlessly , which makes their output that much more engaging. Case in point: Pyramid Murdock's sprawling new project, Crowned Hest . The 10-track affair is presented as a single song, allowing the narrative to unfold. According to Murdock, it [...]

THIS WEEK'S BEST BET: Young Widows w/ The Liverhearts, Hawks, Castle Saturday, Febrauary 2 The Earl - 466 Flat Shoals Avenue in Atlanta 30316 Admission $10 / Purchase Tickets Louisville's Young Widows have become a consistent touring presence in Atlanta, good for at least two shows of fierce, earth-shaking rock every year.

Genres? We don't care about no fuckin' genres! I imagine those thoughts run through the head of an artist like Pyramid Vritra , aka Hal Williams, whenever he decides to record a new track. To be fair, his cuts tend to be dreamy, synth-heavy works, like his two latest releases. That being said, "Mids" and "100ft" are worlds apart in their approach. The former is a tripped-out psych-pop romp while the latter is a mild club-ready jam. Oh, it's FONKY, too. [ via ] RELATED: The 50 Most Anticipated [...]

OK, the music gods have again blessed us today. Rapper-producer Pyramid Vritra teamed with Odd Future Talk to put together a compilation of previously unreleased tunes from his solo discography and his stuff as part of Jet Age of Tomorrow. Scopolomine features 10 tracks in total and the best part about this? You can hear a preview of his new album, Pyramid , by checking out "Drain", which features Frisco aka Syd Tha Kyd. Yeah.

Electronic music has been rolling for long enough to gather an Old Testament's worth of rules - thou shalt build thy set subtly; thou shalt not mingle thumping Chicago house with dub-techno; above all, thou shalt exercise tasteful restraint. Paul Woolford is part of that blessedly multiplying breed who know these rules are more honored in the breach than the observance, and his latest mix for NRK's Lab series is aflame with unholy syncretism. Within the first twenty minutes of disc one, Woolford has very decidedly [...]
NRK Music has been a consistent and trusted source of the finest deep house and tech house for the last decade and a half. Set up in 1996 in Bristol, UK, NRK Music quickly delivered a hefty slew of releases from the off from artists like Ian Pooley, François K, Dimitri From Paris and Nick Holder, and have never really looked back. Now with over 170 single releases and 45 albums NRK prepare to celebrate 15 years in the business with “Forever Underground”. It's a 3CD package which collects some of the label's finest moments and features soooo [...]
★★★★☆ Another UK to Germany transplant, Ed Davenport has a rock-solid base of deep sounds that he chisels into techno, dubstep and electronica. So while you’re getting a 12-track, after-dark vibe that’s all cut from the same stone, he can switch from light meandering patter (the paranormal title track that could fit into any dance category – another plus point regarding his adaptability) to using the same elements for something much heavier (techno butcher "One Last Look"). With a therefore natural handover between the two ("Djungel Alliance" is stinging Detroit/acid with a knowhow in staying afloat), [...]
Tweet vaso link Atlanta, Los Angeles, Powder Springs?! Wherever they might be. Regardless, 2011 was an insanely productive and fruitful year for hip hop collective Nobody Really Knows. And the scary part is that 2012 will probably be even wilder and crazier. The group is slowly gaining a foothold and a following among hip hop heads. They capped off 2011 with KC 2.02s full-length debut Brightside. Released at 11:59 p.m. on New Year's Eve, the album is a [...]

Tweet vaso link This has been a fantastic year, not only for music, but also for me personally. I found an outlet for gratuitous and utterly pointless swearing (Fuck yeah!) in the world of indie music blogging. And Andy and Dave were nice enough to deal with these random outbursts and generous enough to give me a creative outlet (outside of my daily world of print journalism). So with that, I present my top 10 albums list of [...]

★★★☆☆ With a set of deep house pushing on your pressure points, Seth Troxler tests how low the subterranean can go, fashioning one of those trust exercises where you’re asked to fall backwards on the dancefloor and hope that he catches you. After a hushed opening made to feel intimidating, David Alvarado’s "Beautification" settles the senses and Tommy Bones’ tribally pornographic "After the Club" truly offers stress relief. Meditation complete, Troxler gets to work with a more hustling techno sound started by DBX, the eerie shimmers of Daze Maxim then throwing you unapologetically from your previous [...]
When Global Communication — Tom Middleton and Mark Pritchard — reunited earlier this year after a 15-year hiatus to produce the splendid Back in the Box compilation for NRK, many diehard fans' prayers had finally been answered. The release shines the spotlight on music that influenced the duo and arrives when elements of '90s club culture are beginning to infiltrate contemporary dance floors. Big Shot caught up with Middleton during a visit to New York and asked him to talk about the duo's long-awaited release.
If the name Pyramid Vritra doesn't grab you, then how about the Jet Age of Tomorrow , the Super 3, Odd Future , or NRK ? Yeah? Well, good, because Vritra, aka Hal Williams, is part of all four of those acts. But he's also doing it on his own and will make his proper debut Nov. 21 with a five-track album called The Story Of Marsha Lotus LP . Now, five tracks might seem short for a full-length LP, but that's because dude's made some lengthy compositions filled with multiple movements. The opening track, for example, [...]

This nugget of news from yesterday passed us by until a few moments ago - being in London, we've been kinda concentrating on the rioting sparking up on our doorsteps - but apparently Norway's national public service broadcaster, NRK, is going to send Mayhem's longtime bassplayer, Necrobutcher, over to Arizona to be exorcised by Bob [...]
Atlanta hip-hop collective/family Nobody Really Knows scares me (but in an awesome way). They are a group of seriously talented artists. The first thing you notice about the pyramids is their amazing brand of jazzed out rap. But the group is ever-evolving, preparing to release a number of musical projects this year. NRK, however, is...
"And I'm always faded, but you can tell it's me, so my talent's not mistaken," Andre McCloud tells the audience on his track "Inhale" from his debut release Therapeutic Visions. This statement can really be construed as his mission statement/thesis. As the resident weed rapper from Atlanta hip-hop family/collective Nobody Really Knows, McCloud delivers some...

Dreams, the act of dreaming, and interpreting those dreams truly lie at the heart of Atlanta hip-hop collective/family Nobody Really Knows.

This is probably the point in the series where it has become somewhat obvious that I'm an obsessive person - obsessive when it comes to music, literature, cereal, television, etc. The has probably become even more apparent after sifting through the Nobody Really Knows musical catalog.

Rapper/producer Gloomy Pyramid of Atlanta hip-hop collective Nobody Really Knows is a different kind of guy.

It's weird to me that I can listen to a group/collective (whatever term you would choose to use for a large, loosely affiliated consortium) like Atlanta's Nobody Really Knows (NRK) and I can honestly say that I like everything they have produced. The group's sound is nearly impossible to pin down. You have older-school leaning...
