Album: Mosh – “Monarchy”

Bandcamp touts the ability to “tag” your music so that people can “find” and “discover” music, and to be honest, I’ve never used this feature. I also doubt many of you have gone spelunking through BandCamp tags. However, tonight I was actually trying to figure out if you could still steal non-downloadable BandCamp songs by exploring the cache after playing them. I needed a test album… and somehow I arrived at Mosh’s debut instrumental album “Monarchy.” Bad News: You can’t steal the mp3’s off BandCamp anymore. Good News: I found Mosh’s debut album “Monarchy.” The intro track hit me immediately and a listen through the rest of the 11 tracks proved to mirror my initial reaction– Dope.

I applaud Mosh’s self-description of his music: “Blending hip-hop, electro, and punk elements, Mosh delivers a sound that is as malicious as it is imposing.” Much better than the usual “Raps with the insight of Mac Miller with the sage introspection of Mike Studd but keeps it real like Rick Ross” garbage a lot of these “musicians” send us.

Couldn’t find a Twitter account for Mosh, but here he/she/they are on Facebook. Here’s to hearing more from him/her/them in the future.
