There’s been so much buzz around Odd Future recently that it’s easy to forget how many amazing MCs there are out there, spitting truth into a mic.
Two of my favorites for the past few years have been P.O.S. and Astronautalis. I haven’t written about them yet because I haven’t figured out exactly what to say to do them and their music justice. From a lyrical, musical and production perspective their records push the genre forward, and on stage, they’re beasts. Individually, they kill. Together, they eat the audience alive.
There are so many great little moments in this video, but Astronautalis’ performance from 2:18 to 2:48 tells you all you need to know about the passion and energy he puts into his music.
I’ll be writing about them more in the future, but for now – enjoy.

The Blank Tapes is a San Francisco-based band that has stayed busy the past few years touring and pumping out tons of great music (much of it on vinyl). Matt Adams is the lead guitar/singer/songwriter and really the only constant member of The Blank Tapes. He tours with different musicians a lot and employs his friends to rock out in different cities, making his shows super original and spontaneous. Playing a lot of small venues, The Blank Tapes have amassed a good bit of press from some big names (see ROLLING STONE) and continue to rock out, so check out to see if you can catch a show in a city near you!
