Blocsonic recently launched a brand new site redeisgn – I’d say two weeks ago? In any case, if you weren’t familiar with Blocsonic before (how could you not be if you follow this podcast?), it is a great netlabel that focuses on both original music and deluxe re-release editions. Most of the artists found there will have a hip hop angle to it, but not everything; it’s also home to the infamous netBloc, a compilation of various Creative Commons tracks around the Web.
Nic Falcon’s Playing Fair EP was released back in March, but I missed it the first time around. A shame, since this two-track album is pretty great. It’s more of a pop-rock sound and the title track is my favourite here. These tracks are actually part of blocsonic’s “fortyFive” series; the full listing of the series can be found here. There are some other gems in there that will find their way to the podcast!
