PR: Vote For Your Favorite Eyedea Lyric

Hope summer has been treating you well. As always, we've been busy, but will try to keep things brief.

-A few weeks back we asked all of you to submit your favorite lyric for consideration to be put on the picnic table plaque in Cherokee Park this October 16th.  We had an incredible response, receiving nearly 300 submissions. We then narrowed it down to the top 8, which you can vote on until midnight on Monday, August 15th. Go here to vote - https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/DDN2DCL .

As you've likely heard, we will be holding a park bench dedication ceremony will on Sunday, October 16th in Cherokee Park. There will be performances and stories all day, and the public is welcome to attend. We're working really hard to make this a free event, but we need your help.  Here are a few ways you can help us out:

-All sales from the Micheal Larsen web store go toward this event. We're constantly adding new CDs and products, including releases by No Bird Sing, Kristoff Krane, and Educated Consumers - http://micheallarsen.com/products-page/ .

From Park Street PR:

Video: River Nelson - "Old Times & Good Wishes"

"Old Times & Good Wishes" is the new single from acclaimed US emcee River Nelson, where he recounts his early days in the game, sending shouts to the crew he came up with, remembering their innocent love of hip-hop, complemented by suitably nostalgic production from Beat Thief and an ingenious video from director Eric Hudson which weaves video and photos from the 90's, including classic footage of the Boogiemonsters, to poignantly capture the track's mood.
 
This marks River Nelson's first release with DowntownSoul, ahead of his second album with legendary hip-hop producer Lewis Parker, which they are currently recording in New York; due to be released by DowntownSoul & A World of Dusty Vinyl later this year.
 
River Nelson will also be performing live at Strawberry Fields Festival in the UK this August Bank Holiday (26th-28th). For more information visit the website at www.strawberryfieldsfestival.co.uk />

MP3: Dustin Prestige - "Rise"


From Audible Treats:

MP3: Dustin Prestige - "Rise"

The Song:

If you've been paying attention recently, you may have noticed things can get pretty tough, frustrating even, for an up-and-coming artist – and especially for an artist who's style isn't exactly the sound du jour for the city from which he hails. Dustin Prestige understands all these things, but rather than bitch and moan, the Mo. City, Texas spitter has embraced his differences, and no where is this more apparent than on his new project, The Kelly and Jessie EP, or it's latest single, "Rise."

"People in hip-hop always act like the ascension to notoriety isn't a constant struggle," explains Prestige when discussing the inspiration behind the new single. "It seems simplistic material is promoted, often at the expense of others, and it's the 'new' MC's that find themselves having to 'rise' about that." And for a single titled "Rise," the song kicks off, and runs through, with a strong dose of emphatic, aided not only by Dustin's mix of singing to go along with his boisterous raps, but also Chris Rockaway's driving production. Rockaway, who produces throughout The Kelly and James EP, brings a rolling guitar lick and percussion heavy drums for Dustin, who asks on the hook, "Must I fail before y'all feel me?/ Must I vanish before y'all see me?/ Will I always be waiting in the wing... Or will I rise?"
