Instrumental Hip Hop from Doomtree's Paper Tiger
I’m a big fan of instrumental hip-hop, particularly from Minneapolis’ own artists like Big Cats! and this solo debut release from Doomtree producer Paper Tiger called Made Like Us.

We Are the Willows' Midwest Song Map
I wrote about the new We Are the Willows debut LP, A Collection Of Sounds And Something Like The Plague back in October, and I’m still digging on it.
Check out this cool map Amble Down sent over:
Recorded in a basement and all over the city of Minneapolis (where Miller currently lives) with nothing more than a laptop and a couple of microphones, A Collection of Sounds And Something Like The Plague is directly constructed from and inspired by the noise of one’s surroundings. Miller captured sounds like the brakes on a train, conversations at a local cafe and stones being . . . → Read More: We Are the Willows' Midwest Song Map
