Sole feat. Sage Francis – Progress Trap

“Progress Trap” has Sole and Sage Francis teaming up on a track for the first time in almost a decade. This song is from Sole & The Skyrider Band’s new album “Hello Cruel World” – available to pre-order on CD & Vinyl here.

On “Hello Cruel World,” Sole aka Tim Holland returns with the Skyrider Band for his first full length since the split with Anticon with a refreshing, new found confidence and focus not seen since his now-classic albums “Selling Live Water” and “Bottle of Humans.” On “Hello Cruel World” Sole has assembled an army of the most exciting voices in indie culture to be apart of the new record, recruiting everyone from LILBTHEBASEDGOD, Xiu Xiu, Pictureplane, Sage Francis, Ceschi, and more, to create a pretty stunning tapestry that is a new high water mark in Sole’s creative output.

Cecil Otter – 1999

No matter how many times we feature it, we never feel like enough love is shown to Cecil Otter’s excellent debut albumĀ  “Rebel Yellow.” So we offer you another chance to get on the bandwagon before Cecil brings his sophomore spectacular “Porcelain Revolver” to the world this fall.

“1999″ is a track from Rebel Yellow, his first official full-length album, and it is Cecil at his finest. He’s a prophet turned cardshark. He’s striking matches on his whiskers and lighting up your cigarette. He’s buying the saloon a round, then conducting their ensemble with a loaded pistol and a whisky on the rocks.

Rebel Yellow is available from SFRstore on CD & MP3 Download
