Turns out there’s this interesting French blog called 100% Bandcamp that appears to exclusively lists composed of music compiled from Bandcamp. The most recent post is the second part of their list of 20 albums on Bandcamp to hear before the end of the year. At least I think that’s the translation.
Last week CBC Music posted CBC Radio 3′s Top 103 Songs of 2016, and two Backburner songs made the cut. At #45 is Swamp Thing with “Wild Things” from their album Pray to Science released on Urbnet, and at #31 is More Or Les with “Cuppa,” the first single from his Hand’Solo Records-released album Blow the Fuck Up But Stay Humble.
Thank you to the Editorial Staff who contributed to the creation of this list… It’s a great list and these songs are in great company.
Just one week after Chad Walker posted his Geek Music Podcast with More Or Les, he follows up with a new episode featuring Primordial Emcee as guest. They discuss Prime’s evolution as rapper, the meaning of his name, new album X-Faction 2: Reanimated, his interest in comics and anime, and more…
More Or Les returns to Geek Music Podcast on Fandomania.com for his second encounter with Chad Walker to discuss the big issues: the suckage of 2016, the monetization of art (or not), corporate controlled media, net neutrality, politics, and of course, Dr Who and comics.
The first review is in for More Or Les’ Blow The Fuck Up But Stay Humble, and Andrew Young of Geek Hard has the distinct honour of writing it… Looks like he liked it, but don’t take my word for it… Here’s the intro:
Last week I recorded a podcast with Chad Walker for his Geek Music Podcast on Fandomania.com, and we talked about the early years of Hand’Solo Records, sex raps, physical media, politics, fandoms, and the many origins of the Hand’Solo name. The interview went live this week. It’s an hour of great listening! And I swear my voice isn’t annoying at all… Check it out!
On “Cuppa”, the new video and first single off the full length album Blow The Fuck Up But Stay Humble, More Or Les happily shows off his pride in being thoughtful rather than non-sensical, multi-faceted instead of ultra-repetitive, and graceful instead of clunky with his style of intellectual indie Hip Hop over Pop Rap. Also on the beats and cuts, Les hits you with never-ending 808 bass, stuttering guitars and pounding drums. Add to that, whimsical visuals courtesy of indie Toronto film company Endless Films, and you have a flavour that is undeniably Les’ cuppa…tea!
