Casual - The Hierophant

Here is some more isht to bob ya head to. The beauty of music released via Bandcamp is that all songs and albums are available for full streaming. Many of the albums are released for free while others are name your own price. Either way, this is a great way for independent musicians to get their music in the hands of fans and support their craft.

Theck out the new release by a member of the legendary Bay Area Hieroglyphics crew Casual.

Everyday Politcal Rhetoric from the Christian South

Everyone at the WUW? office loves waking up in the morning to check our Facebooks because someone will likely have great material to write about... Today is no different.

We are attempting to meet another deadline so we will revisit this later but a few thoughts as your read:

1. Do Christians really debate who to fear more - Mormons, Muslims, or Socialists?

2. Do they not see the hypocrisy in these statements?

3. How can anyone claim that Rick Perry has done great things for this state when education is in ruins.

4. Sarah Palin? Really?

A few days ago we asked how Fox News can get away with the trash it puts on television...

Courteys of Media Matters and  The Atlantic
well I think we found our answer...

Chiddy Bang - Peanut Butter and Swelly | Free Mixtape

I flipped the first time I heard these dudes. They were cosigned by Black Thought of the legendary Roots crew. We took a WUW? office trip to their show here in College Station, Texas and they came correct.

The flows are nice but the beats are nicer.
Download the tape and getting ready to dance at ACL in ATX!

Bangin dem Beats,

2011 Nominations for Band of the Summer | Walk The Moon

Summa Summa Summa Tiiiiime.....

There will never be a better summer time jam than DJ Jazzy Jeff and The Fresh Prince's Summertime but throughout the years, there have been many great songs to pump at the pool and drive to with the windows down.

Our nomination for the 2011 Band of the Summer is none other than Cincinnati's own:

Yes, this is the same band that WUW? brought to you a few weeks back. (See: How We Discovered the Cincinnati Music Scene)

Local Natives - Gorilla Manor


The Revolution Might be Facebooked

On May 27th, Gil Scott-Heron passed away.

I will not claim to understand his significance. His words were not meant for me, but they speak to me.

His words were not written today but they have significance for tommorow. His words can be interpreted, misinterpreted, and reinterpreted but the words he spoke will remain significant.

Today we have more information, education, and wealth than any nation in history - but we still hold onto old paradigms.
