Rising: Master Chef Action Bronson - Leftover-Based "Turkey Sliders" (FADER TV)

Action Bronson is without a doubt the most raw, captivating character to emerge from the music scene this year. You know what? - He very well may be the most interesting artist in Hip-Hop music within the last 5-10 years! A college and culinary school dropout, Bronson sounds like Ghostface Killah & Raekwon mashed together and thrown on top of Jazzy MF DOOM beats. All too recently, Action Bronson was a high-class Pro Chef. But he gave it all up (fame & fortune) for The Love of Hip-Hop; Although, still cooks as much as humanly possible in his free time while on tour. I must admit, I've been sleeping on this dude for the majority of 2011. Yet fear no more!: I just downloaded nearly 1/2 of Action Bronson's [back]catalog earlier this fine evening.

Action Bronson's most recent contribution to the vast, prosperous "goldmine" that is The Internet just so happens to be FADER TV's "At Home with Action Bronson." Essentially, it's an invite into Bronson's own Flushing, Queens apartment and kitchen 'fridge. Culinary skills are blasted, front and center as Thanksgiving leftovers are re-mixed and re-mastered, for all intensive purposes. Master Chef Action plates an innovative helping of Turkey Sliders: Corn muffin, turkey breasts in gravy, cold mac-N-cheese, corned beef cuts, and toasted marshmallows.
The latest output from Action Bronson, Well Done [1 of 5 pre-recorded albums] was produced by Statik Selektah and just released on Nov. 22nd. His previous effort... proper debut, Dr. Lecter (Tommy Mas) was one of 2011's most critically acclaimed albums. His limited discography also includes: Bon Appetit EP, The Program EP, "Holy Trinity," Bon Appetit... Bitch!!! (mixtape), and a miscellaneous collection of various Internet-released promo singles. Another interview music-food centric featurette of particular note was recently aired on "Last Call with Carson Daly" (NBC-10).

Honestly, at this point in time, Run The Jewels (RTJ) should require absolutely no introduction... but, just to be safe, here's a brief/obligatory introduction: RTJ consists of rapper/producer and Definitive "Def" Jux co-founder El-P and emcee and OutKast affiliate Killer Mike . Legend has it, El & Mike first met on the set of Mr. Muthaf**kin' eXquire's "The Last Huzzah" (Remix) music video shoot. Soon after, [adult swim] Senior Vice President/Creative Director Jason DeMarco—then, at Williams Street Records—connected Killer Mike with El-P , who would produce his phenomenal 2012 album, R.A.P. Music. Mike , additionally, appeared alongside El on his own 2012 Fat Possum Records album, Cancer 4 Cure, on stand-out track, "Tougher Colder Killer." R.A.P. Music & Cancer 4 Cure were released weeks apart, so fast friends Killer Mike & El-P decided to tour together behind their then-new albums. After the widespread success of said tou

Fake Names is a Punk/Hardcore super-group consisting of vocalist Dennis Lyxzén (Refused, INVSN, SAMURAI,) guitarist/vocalist Brian Baker (Minor Threat, Bad Religion, Dag Nasty,) second lead guitarist/vocalist Michael Hampton (Embrace, The Faith, S.O.A.) bassist Johnny Temple (Girls Against Boys, Soulside, New Wet Kojak,) and, sometimes, drummer Matt Schulz (SAVAK, Holy F*ck, Enon.) "I'm in a new band with some friends from elementary school(!) and a sharp-dressed revolutionary from Sweden," Brian Baker (@brianbakers) posted on Instagram Wednesday morning; of course, referring to Hampton, Temple, and Lyxzén, respectively. Again, it appears as though Schulz is a part-time members of Fake Names , having played live with the band in their early aughts, although, their newly-launched website adds, " Matt [Schulz] played the drums. No synthesizers," within, what appears to be, digital liner notes. Guitarists Brian Baker & Michael Hampton first started j

CREDIT: Reid Haithcock American Ethos are a mysterious Punk/Hardcore band based out of New England. I, actually, heard about American Ethos through a recent post made by @simpsonsXcore on Instagram, wherein they re-created the cover for American Ethos' recent self-titled debut full-length. Primarily functioning as the long-time "solo" project of guitarist and frontman Daniel Lajoie, American Ethos has featured a rotating cast of players. First established in 2011, Lajoie's American Ethos released a 3-track Demo Twenty Eleven, followed by a 2015 EP entitled Cosmetics​, and yet another EP in 2018 called Futurism. Last year, right before year's end on December 26th, American Ethos returned once more with their self-titled 12-track debut full-length on Texas-based Conditions Records. For this album, Daniel Lajoie has recruited drummer Mike Moschetto and Ryan Stack, who plays organ on "mulligan" and some guitar licks on "the killing chair" & &
