BearTooth Collective Presents: cunabear's YAWNING TOWARDS HEAVEN!!!! & i pray that you enjoy your life (Limited Edition Gold Bricks)



Savannah, Georgia-based rapper and producer cunabear (@cunabear) has returned with his 40th studio album, YAWNING TOWARDS HEAVEN!!!! cunabear is the co-founder of tape label, BearTooth Collective and recently appeared on "untitled" alongside wc tank on 'i's' .and then there was flowers EP. YAWNING TOWARDS HEAVEN!!!! was produced by cunabear's Quasimoto/Madlib-esque alter-ego sp00ks, as are the majority of his recent releases. "YAWNING TOWARDS HEAVEN!!!! is something of a sequel or sister-project to i pray [that] you enjoy your life," cunabear recently told The Witzard, via email. "They were originally, one whole project and in the very beginning, it was less of an "album" and more of a "pet-project" that I wasn't going to release. I was experimenting with production styles both old and new, trying to breathe new life into what foundation I'd built so far," he continued. Nestled below is cunabear's latest music video for "Blueberry Jams" from his April 2018 album, Ursine Valor.


Honestly, in my humble opinion, cunabear's YAWNING TOWARDS HEAVEN!!!! sounds like something stylistically in-between Kanye's Aggro-Rap magnum opus, Yeezus and The Postal Service's 2003 debut, Give Up. YAWNING TOWARDS HEAVEN!!!! is actually, packaged along with it's aforementioned "sequel," i pray that you enjoy your life, in a special shiny gold double-cassette package now available from cunabear/BearTooth Collective's Bandcamp page. While i pray that you enjoy your life only boasts one feature: Valore AKA Lady Valore on "chai + honey & sativa blunts," YAWNING TOWARDS HEAVEN!!!! showcases guest spots from SB The Moor, BigStupid​!​diot, Gomec, Virgil Wolfe, Creative Space Cadet—all on one single posse cut!—Mugwampers, BigStupid!diot (again,) and four_circles. cunabear is, somehow, already working on the follow-up to YAWNING TOWARDS HEAVEN!!!!/i pray that you enjoy your life coming this September... as well as, if "the rumors" are to be believed, a collaborative project with Mugwampers & Unsung. Just 7/10 IPYEYL/YTH Limited Edition Gold Bricks (Double-cassette) are now available from cunabear's Bandcamp page for a limited time only!

Dj Cold Cut & DJ Dragon Smasher Mash-up Run The Jewels & Run-D.M.C. Classics On Run The DMC; Plus New RTJ4 Singles (Pig Food Records)

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

Members of Refused, Minor Threat, The Faith & Girls Against Boys Join Forces to Form Fake Names & Share "Brick" Single (Epitaph Records)

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

Guts of The Ice - An Exploration of "Puck" Rock/Hockey-core #4½: THE ZAMBONIS' Mascot The Hockey Monkey (B-A-N-A-N-A-S Q&A)

The Hockey Monkey with Storm & Sparky The Dragon (SOURCE: Matt Gonzalez) Not entirely unlike Wrestle/Wrassle Rap or Basketball Rap, there's, apparently, a whole sub-genre of hockey-themed Punk/Hardcore—oftentimes, referred to as "Puck" Rock or Hockey-core. Yes, I've been a die-hard fan of Punk/Hardcore for 15+ years and I, too, only first heard about Puck Rock within the last few weeks. Although, once I started diggin' around, I discovered about 10-15 bands at the forefront; this was, then, gradually narrowed down to 10 "front-line" bands, which will be chronicled here over the course of coming weeks. The "top-scoring" bands we selected include: Crippled Youth, SLAPSHOT, The Hanson Brothers/Nomeansno, Two Man Advantage, The Boils, D.O.A. THE ZAMBONIS, Pansy Division, The Hextalls, and The Ramoms' "Gritty Is A Punk" flexi-disc. We sent out a short 6-question interview form to all of the aforementioned bands, received some ba
