Today I tried to download every piece of music ever released by cloud rappers Main Attrakionz and I was pretty psyched to see this new track that was only released a week ago.  Although the Friendzone produced beat takes some of the haze away from the typical Main Attrakionz ambient style, the “best duo ever” still sound great over the lush, cali-funk inspired beat.  Friendzone was the same producer responsible for ‘Perfect Skies’ so he has a knack for bringing the best out of the duo.  Mondre and Squadda can’t do much wrong in my opinion and Shady Blaze is a nice addition with a quality verse of his own.

KEEL HER is an artist I’ve been following for a little while now not exactly sure what I to think about the artist.  Rose Keeler-Schäffeler’s solo project as KEEL HER is probably the closest any artist has come to being the rock equivalent of Lil’ B.  Their compositions aren’t anything alike and Rose doesn’t sing repeated one-liners about swag or getting boys, however, through her soundcloud and bandcamp, Rose has built up an incredible library of tunes.  KEEL HER plays lazy, sloppy and lo-fi as hell bedroom pop that range from subjects of being bored, weed and general chilling.  It’s the kind of creative output that would make a lot of people skeptical but after her putting out so many good jams it has become very difficult to deny.  So I’m going to just invite you all to join me on the KEEL HER band wagon.
