Reader, so many things are happening that I'm out of breath. I'm bent over in the parking lot, wheezing. And shows are happening! Tapes are dropping! Another playlist is here, and with it, I will try to wrangle together at least a few of the threads.

Track number one on this playlist is like a crossroads. It's "Hi Frequency" off of Jay Brookinz' most recent basically-legendary-at-this-point Gateway project, #GATEWAY5. And wouldn't you know it, Brookinz has been hard at work lately on a new MFT-sponsored project called #JAYBROOKINZRADIO, a regular playlist featuring local bangers that the radio (our pal Kat Coplen at Alt 1033 notwithstanding) wouldn't touch because of their red hot fire. Volume two just dropped over on Soundcloud; check it out.

Beyond that, of course, you've got Sirius Blvck rhyming on that track, a guy who has been so busy lately it makes me feel like real chump. In addition to gearing up for his new L.I.T.A. LP (with a release show on December 12 at the Hi-Fi), and dropping a video for "Yung Vultures" off that album (embedded below), he's also featured as Dark Biscuit on the latest collaborative release from Running Bodies Productions and MFT, #YOLDER.  If you think you're ready for a cloud rap night ride, click over to Soundcloud as quick as you possibly can.

 

 

All that talk about just one track! Now you see why I'm wheezing. Anyhow, as you get deeper, there's still good stuff to gaze on. I mean, the second track right there is off Thee Tsunamis' Delirium and Dark Waters EP  from Magnetic South which you can finally hear in its entirety right here on the archive! There's also a Merc Versus track on there in honor of the pile of truly fantastic stuff he just uploaded.

It's not all smoldering lava though. Sometimes we chill. Holding down that angle we've got The Bears of Blue River, and recent MFT-addition and (disclosure) certified longtime personal bud Dylan Wright. Wright just dropped his excellent debut LP As A Ghost and you can hear a few tracks from it here on the archive, buy it from him on Bandcamp, or read even more about it in Chicago Reader (while watching the video for the track "Iron Gates") because he is famous now. The choice is yours.

And of course, a bit deeper in the playlist, there's "Arrange Blood" off of !mindparade's 2012 release Everything is Happening. Alongside Dog Brother, !mindparade are playing MFT's monthly in-store at Indy CD & Vinyl this Saturday which you can read about here. And of course, lest you forget, MFT is sponsoring another event Friday night at Kismet; read about that one by clicking this strand of blue text.

Before I go too far I'm gonig to stop myself. Know however, that the stars aligned on this one, friends. I'm always pretty high on whatever I've dropped in these playlists, but this week feels like it'll go down as a favorite. The cherry on top of it all is maybe the most gloriously chaotic cover of a Pere Ubu song I've ever heard from favorite new (to me) archive discovery The Belgian Waffles! Listen to it loud and point your speakers out the window. Your neighbors will love it.

Don't forget to give me tips via email or Twitter if you're so inclined. Peters, out.
