New Track: "Cubic Zirconia" - No Thank You

All It Takes To Ruin It All, the forthcoming album from No Thank You, will released on April 6 via Lame-O Records. The trio recently shared the album’s lead single, “Cubic Zirconia”. A rhythmic climb gathers steam as Kaytee Della Monica expresses a sensitive awareness in the face grief. The insight into the flurry of emotion that follows loss is surrounded by an instrumental drive, providing a concise, episodic window. Kung Fu Necktie will be hosting No Thank You’s record release show on Friday, April 6, where they'll be supported by Narra and Tact. (Photo by Daniel Lidon)

SXSW Presents: Huey P.

 Not many of us keep on the path we stepped foot on in middle school, but SeaTac's Huey P. definitely did, and it's worked out for him greatly so far. At such a young age he learned that hip-hop and rap can and should be used for the greater good, and that's something Huey P. has always tried to do.

Since his debut album Did You Get the Message came out in 2016, Huey P. has been using his rhymes to try and spread positivity, particularly around those he interacts with in his neighborhood and the local music community. Although he was encouraged to leave the Pacific Northwest in pursuit of bigger cities like Los Angeles and New York because of his talents, his allegiance to his city and the people in it are real. "Having someone from the more urban culture in a positive manner, in the right light. It hasn’t been done yet,” he told Bellingham-based What's Up Magazine

Huey P. devotion, and flair, aren't going unnoticed.

Debut Terrence Walsh EP Available for Streaming & Download

Love You, Mean It, the debut EP from Terrence Walsh, was recorded and produced by Jacob Ewald at The Metal Shop. Following a folk-rock trajectory, Walsh’s vocals harness a wounded yearning. Specks of harmonica pull one in closer to the personal scenes. The personal-narrative of “Codependent” contains a persistent train-rumbling in the self-awareness, while the serene, swaying simplicity of “Sexinthemorning” carries a loving sadness. Walsh will be performing at Oxford Coma: Last Writes on Thursday, March 22 at Wooden Shoe Books and Records.

Mic Capes Celebrates Black History Month with "Black Pearls"

Celebrating blackness is something that should happen year round and for those of us that fall under that racial designation, it does. But as far as the rest of society is concerned, February is the one month to give the most recognition. For Mic Capes, this is part of his identity, but in the spirit of Black History Month he's dropped a new video for his track "Black Pearls."

"Black Pearls" comes off Mic Capes' debut LP, summer 2016's Concrete Dreams. It starts out with a spoken word feature from Lauren Steele, before breaking into grooves permeated with R&B as Capes and singer Aaron O'Brian Smith play lyrically and vocally. The actual video itself doesn't feature Lauren Steele, but subs in visuals of model Teresa Patterson mouthing lines from the poem while surrounded by a waterfalls, rocks and gorgeous greenery. Other shots include a black mother feeding her children, an appreciation of different black hair and fashion styles, a little girl blowing bubbles and a variety of black women smiling, giving the video an overall jovial air toward black culture.

Though Black History Month is coming to its close, our celebration never stops. Watch the video for "Black Pearls" below, and catch Mic Capes perform next at a Soul'd Out Festival-hosted show at the Wonder Ballroom with JID, EarthGang and Brown Calculus in late April.

SXSW Presents: Stephen Mykal

Stephen Mykal is the artist you've likely heard before and didn't even know it. This is his second year playing SXSW, yes, but the young producer, singer and lyricist has had the fortune of doing some else just as resume building and definitive of his talent - working with Teyana Taylor.

Anyone up on pop culture and the black community knows who Teyana Taylor is. The dancer, choreographer, actress, model and singer is huge in the rap game, which is why Mykal's feature on her fitness video platform Fade 2 Fit was so important. Mykal produced the music and provided some vocals for the platform late in 2016, showing that his ear for production and his creative capacity are definitely getting the recognition they deserve.

On top of this, Mykal's soulful performances are an experience to take in. Though much of his output is heavily hip hop based, he possesses the fervor of an emotion-driven r&b singer, bringing an intimacy to him sets that isn't like many others around.

It's no wonder SX brought him back for a second year, and hopefully he'll be back for many more.
