Cincinnati Indie Jam Funk | Majestic Man - Manatee

The WUW? homies decided to post up in Cincinnati for the summer and see if we couldn't get a better pulse on the midwest city with the most underrated music scene. In the past few years we have introduced you to some dope indie rock bands like Walk the Moon and the Seedy Seeds, punk rock band Vacation, and a few underground hip hop acts such as MOOD, Tanya Morgan, Jermiside, and J Rawls
A few weeks ago, our two summer interns Jessica from Xavier and Freddy from Ohio State, were sent on their first assignment - check out this band Majestic Man. Well... our adorable little interns danced their little pants off and turned the whole office into a bunch of little jam band groupies. The sound of Majestic Man places them easily on a year long college tour and not far from a side stage at Bonarroo. Check them out and let us know what you think!

Welcome to Cincinnati,

From the Vault | Beastie Boys x DJ Green Lantern - New York State of Mind Mixtape

I picked up this mixtape in 2003 (I think) at Backside Records in Burbank, California. Backside is a legendary record store so if you are ever in the Burbank area make sure you stop in.

This mixtape was a big one for me because (a) it was a dope Beasties tape and (b) it was my first introduction to Green Lantern.
