Tuesday Tip-Off: Kali Masi

Well, well, well – looks like those Kali Masi boys have all kinds of tricks up their sleeves. Not only is the new single “Trophy Deer” a more melodic and reflective indie rock song ala Weakerthans than the more pedal to the metal post punk barn burner of the first single “The Stray” (see below), but the video was also animated by bassist Anthony Elliott (aka Royal Dog aka Capital T). Ugh. Talented people, amiright? Both songs rip and have us excited for the upcoming album [laughs], dropping March 26th and available for pre-order now.

The B-Side: Sadizzy

Welcome to The B-Side, our column where we bring you a bonus song to check out, fall in love and live happily ever after with.

“My Hype” by Sadizzy takes us back to the glorious boom bap days of 90’s era hip hop with a perfectly minimalist beat, a simple twinkling keyboard melody and just the right amount of tasteful turntablism. Sadizzy has a flow that is reminiscent of a less gravelly Sticky Fingaz of Onyx, and in an era where trap still dominates most playlists it hits like a breath of fresh air. If hip hop is starting to look back to it’s finest decade for influence (which we truly hope it is), than Sadizzy is poised for big things.
