Straight From The Teet - That Kid Era, Skriblah DanGogh, & Lanu

There's no exact way of knowing how many songs are released in a day. Whether it be an eighteen second kazoo ditty on Soundcloud, or a Hypem track with 4 hearts, all music deserves a shot. Even on an independent blog like Earmilk, it's impossible to cover every band/song/remix worth listening too. That's why Straight From the Teet is back, and this time...IT'S DAILY! My name is Logan (aka Running) and I will be curating Earmilk's newest old feature, highlighting three up-and-coming artists from three different genres, so sit back and enjoy some good-old-fashioned, non-pasteurized, Earmilk. Drink it fast though, because I'll be coming back tomorrow with more...


Dedicated & Careless is That Kid Era's newest mixtape, released just this morning to help build hype for another upcoming release (details are still fuzzy). Dedicated & Careless is a prime example of production-done-right. It's an amalgam of well-respected music and samples that mesh perfectly with Era's flow and clever subject matter. It's not perfect (by mixtape standards) but is worth your time to go: "oh, oh, what's that song he's sampling? Don't tell me! Don't tell me!"

Hip-Hop (UK)

So I kind of cheated today. You have to admit though, the grime and dubstep influence on this track almost puts Skriblah's latest "Belly of the East (They Live)" in a separate genre than the "hip-hop" blanket term. It's the newest single off his debut album The Little White Dot, and it has impressively Orwellian visuals to boot. The Little White Dot features guest producers like-one of my personal favorites-Beatbutcha-so be sure to tune back in for a full album review.

I hate to completely change the tone of this post, but there's a very fun, inventive, music video that just came out for Lanu's second single "Fall" (ft. Megan Wasington) off his latest Tru Thoughts release Her 12 Faces. It's a good pallete cleanser if all this depressing foreign hip-hop has left you all angsty.

I've been following That Kid Era since his high school days, this kid is real talent. He makes REAL music not this radio pop stuff. His lyrics have meaning and he surrounds himself with good people. He WILL be successful.
