More Pepperboy: new Mishka mixtape and video



Pepperboy may very well be the busiest man in Arkansas this week. Yesterday he made his new album available for free through NY label Baku Shad-do. Today he's gracing us with the album's accompanying hour-long mixtape presented by Mishka along with a video for his album track "Felon."

Download/stream Pepperboy's new mini-album, Post-Traumatic Stress

Pepperboy's P.T.S.

Little Rock rapper Pepperboy has been making noise about his Post-Traumatic Stress mini-album for well over a month now, teasing us by re-posting its robust cover art several times daily on his personal Facebook account. The album finally dropped today as a free download through NY label Baku Shad-do.

If you've made some time to familiarize yourself with Pep's other recent free releases, all of which you can stream here, then P.T.S.'s eight somber tracks will immediately register as classic Pepperboy: bleak-but-hopeful tales told in a distinctive Southern drawl over a modern selection of ambient-leaning beats by folks like Clams Casino and Blue Sky Black Death. Stream and download the release below:


I confirmed with Pep earlier that Mishka will be putting out P.T.S.'s accompanying mixtape later today. It will feature Lil B, Alaska's Droski Boyz, and Pep's longtime collaborator Temolja.

ANTS Podcast #009 & #010


SUBSCRIBE: iTUNES, RSS, SOUNDCLOUD, MIXCLOUD, TUMBLR

ANTS has been on hiatus for a number of weeks now since my MediaFire account got suspended on some bull. I'll be seeking new hosting shortly, but all MP3s within the ANTS feed are down for the time being. I'll be re-upping all episodes with new links, but in the meantime you can download them all from the ANTS SoundCloud set.

Here's a double dosage to make up for the delay. I rummaged through my recent dance charts and pulled out some house gems of the gentler variety for #009 and got more aggressive for my #010 selections.

#009: Subdued House


#010: Return of the Banger

607 - "AR-tillery"

photo by Dero Sanford
Our favorite retired on-hiatus Arkansas rapper 607 has just dropped an unreleased track from the sessions of his yet-to-be-released album. He's currently making moves to secure a budget to market this material, so best of luck to him.

Regarding "AR-tillery," 607 puts it best: "If you don't shoot guns, you won't feel my new song." I've found that to be not entirely true, but this joint does go hard:


More 607 after the jump, including a re-up of his recent Flip Pack.

The End of an Era: Little Rock's Cool Shoes

RSVP on Facebook
It was announced just last week that Cool Shoes, a four-years strong and much-cherished Little Rock EDM monthly, will be throwing its last party tonight. AiMT has been loosely affiliated with Cool Shoes for a long time, so it's definitely sad to see it go. Luckily the Fayetteville chapter of Cool Shoes is still going strong and will be throwing its seventh party tomorrow.

If you've ever had a good time in Little Rock at a Cool Shoes, tonight is your chance to do it one last time. Don't miss it!
