3BM Essential Listening - R.S. Picks - February 2012 
Each of member of Three Blind Minds has his own varied taste in music which is what makes the collaboration between us three so unique.  Here are a few of the tracks, albums, and artists that we currently just can’t stop listening to.  Like ear crack, if we don’t have it we keep crawling back for a fix of that sweet sweet sonic candy.  Not only is this recommended listening, this is ESSENTIAL listening.

Excision X Sessions Volume 1" Mixtape by Excision.  This mixtape has been in heavy rotation on my Mp3 player for some time now.  Pure heavy, filthy, crunching brutality.  It’s like listening to an apocalyptic genocide of mankind as carried out by legions of death machines.  Regardless what you call it… dubstep, filthstep, brostep …I call it awesomeness.  I particularly enjoy the Excision tracks but this mixtape is full of the best shit.

The X Pack" by Excision.  Continuing the Excision love I also suggest this free album.  More wicked machine apocalypse here.

Inception[Soundtrack]" by Hans Zimmer.  I’ve been coming back to this album again and again since the film came out.  The combination of quiet melancholy emotion and grand building epic-ness makes for a perfectly dark film score roller coaster.  The mixture of orchestral strings, piano, electronic influences, and that ever famous “BWOOOOMP” creates a fairly unique sound scape.  The music is not overly complicated, relying more on simple riffs to create depth and atmosphere.  I’m not exactly a Hans Zimmer fan but he nailed this one and brought much emotion to the Christopher Nolan film.

NERD RAGE’s 2012 Countdown to Oblivion" Mixtape by NERD RAGE.  And we come back to the filthy dubstep mixtapes.  I downloaded this less than a week ago and have listened to it easily ten times or more, no joke.  This mix is AWESOME!  Overfilling with energy, NERD RAGE picked only the most banging tracks to mash into this thing.  It will make you bob your head till your neck gives out.  Clocking in a 50 minutes long, this is one of the few mixtapes that I can listen to start to finish, then hit that play button and listen to it again.  It flies by!  HIGHLY recommended. 

Skrillex.  The final entry in the dubstep/dnb genre is one of the most respected yet disrespected artists in the electronic dance world, Skrillex.  He seems to bring on a lot of hipster-hate for being the first dubstep artist to “break out”.  They can hate if they wish because this guy just won a Grammy for music that could be considered very anti-mainstream.  Yeah, it’s catchy and you can certainly dance to it but it consists of extreme glitches, electro dance beats, and insane growling warped synth bass.  This YouTube playlist contains a mixed bag of Skrillex tracks that I’ve been cycling over and over on my Mp3 player.  I’m inclined towards the more abrasive with my personal favorites being “Kill Everybody” and the two “Fucking Die” tracks…they appeal to my sense of humor…or maybe a deeper inclination ;)  Either way, the high pitched(no doubt auto-tuned) vocals repeating “I want to kill everybody in the world…I will eat your heart” gets me every time!
If Tyranny and Oppression come to this land, it will be in the guise of fighting a foreign enemy.

3BM Essential Listening - L.K. Picks - February 2012

->L.K. (aka Subliminal Hit) Picks<- 

Girl Why" by Amai. Just came across this recently featured on Soundcloud’s Facebook page.  I love this shit, trippy piano trip-hop stuff.

Running" by Gil Scott-Heron/Jamie xx.  A phat beat and cool mix.

Window Licker" by Aphex Twin. Crazy video, crazy song. A good song made funny by the video, SO WEIRD!  I like it! :D

Deadbeat Summer" by Neon Indian.  This is a neat group from New York, they have a trippy, feel-good type of sound.

Mind, Drips" also by Neon Indian. Probably one of my fav by these guys.  Uber trippy video…like LSD world!

Final Wars" by BucketheadAwesome ass technical guitar.

Porcelain" by Moby.  Back to the more 90s era electronica.  I’ve always been hypnotized by this track.  It has that electric/organic feeling I like.

I Can Get Love" by Toro Y Moi.  This electronic band is pretty unique in the fact that they tap into this “groovy” feeling.

Young Sinatra III" by Logic.  Fellow 3BM member, S.G., introduced me to this video.  This is what I want to be leaning towards as a goal in regards to flow in my rhymes.
