Brother Ali is back to doing what he does best; making hip-hop music with some substance. His newest album, Us delves into the deep issues of the human condition; the strengths and flaws that make us all human. “Breakin’ Dawn” is the second official video from the album, which was released September 22, 2009. The video is an epic five-minute tale, beautifully drawn by animators Rob Engle, Dave Irion, and Evan Sheldon. You can also find Brother Ali on the “How the Grouch Stole Christmas Tour” with The Grouch, Eligh, and Los Rakas.
Sounds of shock, wonder, and ecstasy are easily mistaken for one another, and it’s this type of mystery that the Moon Wiring Club feed off of.

New York may be well known for its plentiful hardcore scene, but with so many musicians clinging to the minimalist nature of hardcore in one area, other bands will undoubtedly attempt to adapt that simplistic style into something more complex and forward-thinking over time. Tombs, the new project from ex-Anodyne frontman Mike Hill, is one such band, drawing on their roots and multiple outside influences to create a unique, appealing sound. The “minimalist” aspect of their sound comes from their raw, uncut production, similar to seminal hardcore bands like Black Flag and Minor Threat, and even approaching the levels of black metal artists such as Darkthrone at times. However, there is nothing simple about their compositions, with sound like the darkest nightmares of Gojira or Mastodon. To put it another way, Tombs is the bastard child of noise-rockers Unsane and post-metal visionaries Neurosis—raw, heavy, progressive, and unrelenting across the board.
Check out the track “Course of Empire” after the jump, taken from their upcoming collection of early and unreleased material, entitled Fear Is the Weapon (November 9th, Relapse).
