    Satchuated - Running Down the Rabbit Hole at the Louis Armstrong Archive

    The War Turns Me On - Synthesizers Keep Their Disco Flavor on the Bedpost Overnight

    "You got to start with no fear in your heart." Not a possibility. A.R.E. Weapons are all about the fear in our hearts; their album knows this, even if the lead singer can't quite articulate it. There's the danger guy: You pass him on the street; he's...

    A Great Lost Age of Alcoholic Hip-Hop - The March Of Ides
