If you aren’t able to make it to one of B. Dolan‘s shows this spring (click here to see if he’s coming to your area), you don’t have to miss out on the merch table: we’ve got 3 new pieces of B. Dolan gear that are only available online at SFRstore!
Click on the item image for more pics and details, and to cop yours!
Check out the announcement video below for details on the inaugural edition of The Church of Providence, a new monthly live event presented by B. Dolan and SFR in Providence, RI!
In case you need any more incentive to watch, B also performs “Still Here” and “2BAD” (with Sage Francis) and a heckler is hit by a steel chair. Overzealous security guards and concrete stages don’t mix.
The Strange Famous crew is made up of a lot of card players, so we decided to press these up for ourselves. We figured we would print a few extra decks in case there are any members of the extended Strange Fam out there who are interested in upping the indie-hop cred of their home games with an official SFR deck.
Customers placing an order for this item will receive a regulation deck of 52 playing cards with the SFR logo printed on the back of each one.
***(The poker set and Sage figurine pictured on this page are not included in the purchase. But if you catch us on a good day, maybe you can play us for them.)
Educated Consumers is a Maryland-based duo consisting Seez Mics on vocals and Jay Bombbeat on the beats. If you’ve had your ear to the underground hip-hop scene for the past decade, then you’ve most likely heard their music. If you haven’t heard their music, then you’ve heard their name or you’ve seen the battles. However, if you’re just a casual fan of independent hip-hop, it’s possible their work has flown completely under your radar. As they like to put it, they are “the most slept on crew in indie-rap.” I’m not sure if that’s entirely true, but it’s true enough for them to decide that 10 years of trying to grind out a career with little to show for it is about all they can spare.
When I first learned of their break-up, I called up Seez Mics to see if everything was OK. It’s always off putting to hear news like this because you never know whether it means all the artists involved are hanging up their hats for good or not. It was good to hear Seez explain that it’s an amicable split and they both intend on pursuing music as solo artists or with other side-projects. Still, after being together for so long, through the highs and lows of our fickle sub-culture, and managing to release 5 full-length LP’s independently, you’d like to think that such a talented duo could have more to show for it. It’s an unfortunate story we should expect to hear many times over before this decade is through.
The Strange Famous crew has always considered E.C. as family. We appreciate their contributions to music and we hope that you do as well. If you haven’t heard their music or had a chance to support it, now is the last chance for you to get their CD’s which we have available here.
Once those CD’s are gone, they’re gone for good. We won’t be re-stocking this material and they won’t be pressing any more of it. Here’s to hoping that these guys continue making great music on their own and pushing the envelope in whatever capacity they choose to do so. Salute!
To keep up with the post-EC adventures of Seez and Jay, visit them at the Educated Consumers website here and they’ll keep you updated. The next project we expect to surface from Seez Mics will be a new “Broken Clock” album. Stay tuned for more info that.
