What I am placing is a “tip cup” of sorts. If you enjoy the type of coverage that I feature here at ThisIsBooksMusic.com and would like for it to continue, I am looking for your donation to continue the website for another year, if not more. If you are able to “give a tip” to ThisIsBooksMusic.com, you can do so via PayPal by clicking here. Your private information is secure when you donate via PayPal, and you are also able to make a donation even if you are not a PayPal member. The deadline is September 30th.
While it would be nice for me to run advertising on my website, ThisIsBooksMusic.com is ad-free for a reason, and I’d like to keep it that way. The music I cover is the music I would like for you to listen to and discover for yourself, and pass the information along to those who you think would be interested. This website is about the music I like, support, and listen to on a regular basis, within as many genres as possible. I don’t pick and choose just to make random choices, these are my musical habits, and I share that on a regular basis. If the website is unable to be renewed, all donations will be refunded, no questions asked. If you are able to make a donation, I would be very appreciative.
After dropping hints from it for the last few weeks, Diabolic has finally released his new album, Fightin’ Words (War Horse). To convince you that this album is too good to ignore, you can stream the album in full right now, so prepare for an 18-track gem and kick back for an hour.
The new Terry Malts EP will finally be released next week (September 23rd) by Slumberland Records. It’s called Insides, and the powers that be are sharing the album as a full stream, which you can listen to below before considering making a buy.
At the top of the month, I presented you a song from a forthcoming collaborative album by Apollo Brown and Ras Kass called Blasphemy (Mello Music Group), coming out on Mp3 and CD October 28th, while the vinyl pressing will surface on November 11th (you may pre-order your copy (on red, white & blue vinyl) by heading here, or go there to have the LP in standard black (180g).) The two men and the label decided to reveal another track, complimented with a video. Check out “Humble Pi” and see where these two will take you.
The introduction to this song reminded me of the works of Andrew Poppy but I looked and it’s by an artist named Roger Sellers, who lives in Austin, Texas. He calls his style of pop music “a new level of emotionality”, which means it’s something that is revealing and one that he’s willing to share. “Lates” is a song from his forthcoming album Primitives (Punctum) and after hearing this, I feel Sellers is someone you’ll want to pay attention to in the near future.
AudioPilot Vol 1 is a new album by a rapper who goes by the name of Willi.M Blake, and don’t confuse him with will.i.am at all. Willi.M Blake is his own man with a separate plan and a level of flowing that shows what he’s about and how laid back he can get in his songs. The album features tracks produced by Amaze Beatz, Hank Iving, Y.K.S. Beats and Grand Cru, so get with this Virginian and see how the DMV is shining with Mr. Blake.
If you like Syd The Kyd of The Internet, you are definitely going to enjoy this new track by rapper Ayn Bassa. “Tell Me” not only features Syd helping out with her singing, but the song was produced by The Internet. If you like what Bassa is about, prepare for his forthcoming album, Hugs & Slaps.
HiriiTheHuman is only 16 years old but he’s making songs as if he is a veteran. He did a new song layered over Dr. Dre’s “Exxplosive” and don’t worry, Dre will not sure for he has enough money to not matter about such petty issues, but perhaps Dre should do a duet with HiriiTheHuman. Make it happen, Andre.
Anthrax have a new DVD and Blu-Ray out today called Chile On Hell (Nuclear Blast) and from it is a live performance of a song from the band’s fantastic 1987 album, Among The Living, based on the Stephen King novella Apt Pupil.
The Axiom Of Post Inhumanity (Relapse) is the latest album by Brutal Truth and from it is “Control Room”, but in this case it’s a new remix of the song where things are extended to a drone-ridden 24 minute take. This is what would be called the endurance dance, but you may get into this completely.
