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 album  “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

Sleep of Oldominion – Christopher Intro

A very happy birthday to SFR’s own Sleep of Oldominion! If you’re not familiar with Sleep, check out the intro song to his 2nd LP “Christopher”, which perfectly displays his verbal dexterity, sharp humor and the infectious personality we’ve come to love from this Oldominion veteran. The “Christopher” album is available on CD and MP3 here: http://tinyurl.com/SleepCatalog

Prolyphic – Halfway

Prolyphic is hard at work on a new album with Buddy Peace! SFR wants to make sure you’re in the loop with the latest updates and news on the project. Make sure to ‘like’ both Pro and Strange Famous on Facebook at the links below!

As a bribe, we’re offering Prolyphic’s 2003 song “Halfway” as a FREE DOWNLOAD. “Halfway” is from the long out-of-print compilation CD “Time’s Table Scraps,” a staple of Pro’s live set but nearly impossible to find to purchase these days.

“Halfway” is from an out of print CD so we’re offering it as a free
download.

The $500 GODCAST!

The “Strange Famous GODCAST” is a divine, 50-minute mix of songs, soundbites and demos that Sage Francis has collected over the past 10 years. This isn’t a “hiphop” mix per se; it’s more of an eclectic mix of genres and recordings from various eras of music, film and online gems. As the title of this mix suggests, the GODCAST has a religious theme throughout, but the main objective of this podcast is to share some great-yet-obscure tunes that Uncle Sage cherry picked out of his personal playlist for your listening pleasure.

Did someone say $500? Yes. To make things even more interesting, and to feed into Sage’s ever-spiraling gambling habit, we will pay $500 to the first person who submits the tracklist and soundbite/sample sources of this mix to us by May 25th. That’s how confident we are that the music-fiends, record diggers and internet nerds alike will not be able to figure this playlist out. We’re only giving a 2 week deadline because of how disinterested we are in paying money for something people could very well figure out if given more time.

If you have no interest in participating in this contest, God bless ya. Just click the arrow on the player to download your free mp3 and enjoy the music! The track list will be posted eventually.

Additional rules, regulations, and suggestions can be found at Sage’s blog here.

B. Dolan – The Reptilian Agenda (Theory 77 RMX)

SFR released the original version of “Reptilian Agenda” as a free download last week. The government responded by “killing” Osama Bin Laden. This was an obvious attempt to distract the masses from the truth. The Reptilians have gone into a manic spectacle mode in order to bury the lead. Not only that, but England’s Royal Family (well-known Reptiles) conveniently had a wedding just a couple days prior, which brought the carefully-orchestrated Osama story to a dramatic conclusion. Also, Donald Trump.

To aid in our fight for the truth, we are offering this remix of “Reptilian Agenda” by Theory 77 for FREE. We are also releasing a video (edited by Walter Gross) for the original version of this song which can be seen here: http://youtu.be/EodiBQ845_s

This song originally appears on B. Dolan’s “Fallen House Sunken City” LP which is available on CD, vinyl and MP3 here: www.tinyurl.com/fallenhouse

Don’t shed your rights with your skin.

Sage Francis – Makeshift Patriot

“Makeshift Patriot” was released in 2001. It feels like the right time to post this song again.

Sage Francis recorded and released “Makeshift Patriot” one month after 9/11 as a free download in an effort to combat the fear-culture being drummed up by the US Media and Government. “Makeshift Patriot” is available on the Sick of Waging War CD and the “Life is Easy” DVD. Both available here: http://tinyurl.com/MakeshiftPatriot2001
