After years as members of the west coast hip hop collective Sweatshop Union, Pigeon Hole release their debut full-length record, Age Like Astronauts, this summer on URBNet records. Their latest creation boasts innovative production from the mc/beatmaker team and a distinctive sound that borrows, bends, and shapes music without regard for genre.
“We made the record using Canadian psych samples, 60′s lounge-pop LP’s, baby drum kits, and homemade cassette tape synths,” says Marmalade, one half of Pigeon Hole. “Mostly we drew from the classic hip hop we listened to when we were young. I don’t know what you’d call it. Boombap-psych rap, maybe?”
The album will be available June 15. You can check out Pigeon Hole on their website.

“Mixtape about Nothing” is what made me a Wale fan. Vacation From Ourselves is one of my favourite songs from the mixtape and I heard it on shuffle the past week and I had to share it with you.

I got an early chance to hear a mixtape that is coming out by a local artist named Casper. One of the songs in the mixtape is about his father and he used this scene start the song. I wanted to share it with you because this is amazing acting.
