Portland natives Rare Monk have found just the right mix of alternative, radio-ready riffs and swelling, violin-tinged pysh-rock freakouts on their latest release, Sleep/Attack. Even with the inclusion of some syth elements that have been overly used industry wide (see: Read more
St. Louis rapper Chester Watson should be on your radar like... now. Since he dropped "Hubris" a year ago, his flow has smoothed and his wordplay has molded to form the type of seamless verses on downtempo beats we've Read more
