R.A. The Rugged Man lives up to his rap name most of the time, but every now and then he's not afraid to show a softer side. In the latest episode of his web series Film School on MTV's Film.com, R.A. opens up about films that made him "cry like a f**cking b**tch", including one very surprising choice. R.A.'s new album Legends Never Die is due out later this year on Nature Sounds.
This coming Tuesday, July 24th, Dark Time Sunshine will release their latest album, ANX. To date, the duo, comprised of rapper Onry Ozzborn and producer Zavala, have released singles "Look At What The Cat Did," which features Busdriver, and "Take My Hand," which features Aesop Rock and Swamburger (of Solillaquists of Sound), and today, as anticipation continues to build, Dark Time Sunshine is excited to give eager fans the chance to stream ANX in its entirety via label Fake Four, Inc.'s SoundCloud.
In addition to noteworthy features from Aesop Rock and Busdriver, Dark Time Sunshine enlisted the efforts of P.O.S. (of Doomtree), Reva DeVito, Child Actor, and more, but the real stars of the album are Onry and Zavala themselves, with Zavala's bouncy, percussion-filled instrumentals, pulling from hip-hop, psychadelia, jazz, and electronic sounds, serving as the perfect match for Onry's fast-flowing vocals as he moves from panicked to patient - happy to depressed - touching on topics of trust and betrayal, strength, weakness, and more.
