What up, friends. Is it safe to assume you know the drill by now for these previews? That you have already concluded based on the title of this post in concert with my past behavior that I'm about to give you a little bit of information over and above what is already present in the Facebook event listing about MFT's next iteration of our monthly in-store at Indy CD & Vinyl? Cool. Next paragraph, then. 

Last month's in-store with Popular Ego and The Constants was pretty sick. If you don't believe me, check out the recordings BrainTwins and I put together of the performances from that night below.

 

 

All signs point to this month's in-store being equally as sick if you ask me. I mean, first off, we've got my dude DMA slated. If you are not yet familiar with the crust-funk stylings David "Moose" Adamson under this DMA banner you, my friend, are about to have your head jostled around from high frequency clatter while the chair that felt so steady just a moment ago collapses right out from under you at the sheer power of the sub-bass. 

Adamson's a busy a guy: in addition to his solo work as DMA (listen to samples from last year's Pheel Phree to get a line on that), he's also one half of local footwork weirdos Tuff Blades with Chris Madsen, an active part of the local label Warm Ratio, and an avid collaborator. Last year, along with Oreo Jones, Adamson put out the Highway Hypnosis tape, a collection of tracks built off of Adamson's wacked out hip-hop/crust-funk production and Jones' spitfire flow. I can't tell if I'm tooting my own horn or jacking my own swag when I say this but: if you want to read the interview I did with Adamson back in March, I suggest you click this link to the NUVO website right now

 

 

Also in attendance will be the hip-hop collective Bored. featuring the triple-threat talent attack of Benny, T.A.G., and Flaco. In the soon-to-be-storied tradition of MFT in-stores at Indy CD & Vinyl there have been some good pairings: The Cowboys and Pnature Walk, Caleb McCoach and Heather French Henry, Popular Ego and The Constants. But I'm going to go out on a limb and say that DMA and Bored. are, in terms of complimentary musical approaches, maybe the best pairing we've arrived at so far. They don't sound substantially alike, but they come across like they've got something similar just below the surface. Like they've both got the same shovels but are digging toward different ends of the tunnel. 

 

The production on Bored. recordings is more adventurous that traditional hip-hop. It's dreamy, noisy, and messy. Even so, Benny, T.A.G., and Flaco all find their own individual ways to lock in. Flaco has a lot of that sinewy growl; his voice sounds sometimes like it's made of gears grinding in to place, carving a undeniable and often surprising space within. Check out his latest mixtape HOARDING below. 
 

 

Benny is, in general, a bit more laid back. He sounds sometimes like he's buffeted up by the thump and crack of his production. He's never out of control, though, he stays locked into a sway that rides just ever-so-slightly behind the pocket. His latest mixtape, Sandlot, is below. 

 

 

And finally there is T.A.G., whose singular vocal tack is a lot more skittery. The words seem to pop out of his mouth as if under immense pressure, and they organize themselves in looping ratatat phrases. He too has a mixtape, it's called Arigato. Check it out below: 

 

 

As always the whole deal pops off at 7pm and should be over by 9. It's free and it's all ages and there will be beer-type beverages from Sun King available for those of you over the age of 21. Be there or risk making a mistake you can't take back.
