Blue Scholars fans!?

I am one.

And two great things just happened to me on the internet vis-a-vis Blue Scholars.

First, the Blue Scholars shop has 1st pressings of their first album:

When we closed an old storage unit, we found a couple boxes of the original “Blue Notebook” version of our first record.  Pressed in 2004 and packaged in a plastic jewel case (seriously?), this version contains 11 tracks, starting with the original 1st version of “Solstice.”

This is a deadstock item that will never return.  Better grab one if you’re still working on your title as “Best Seattle Rap Archivest.”


AND, their latest album, Cinemetropolis, is sold out on vinyl from their webstore BUT is available from fifth element/Rhymesayers

So, go build your Blue Scholars collection now.

P.O.S. | We Don’t Even Live Here
PREORDER STARTS NOW. 
cd! vinyl! deluxe packages! posters! shirts! books! stickers! autographs!

We Don’t Even Live Here is the fourth solo album from Doomtree co-founder, punk philosopher and lyrical bomb-thrower Stefon Alexander, aka P.O.S. It’s a tight, bombastic record that builds on the Minneapolis-bred rapper and producer’s penchant for grinding beats and radical lyrics. But at the same time,WDELH marks a change — in sound and in attitude.

OTHER HIP-HOP relaunch!

It’s been a solid year, both online and otherwise, for OH-H, and I’m extremely happy with what I’ve accomplished. That said, I’ve noticed I’ve hit a bit of a wall recently. I’ve been covering shows less frequently and it’s taken longer and longer for me to get videos and interviews turned around and posted on the site. In part, that’s due to a simple lack of resources (namely: time), but I also know myself well enough to know that, when motivated, I tend to get things done. And, as it stands, I’m not motivated to continue this site in the current direction. There’s plenty of music blogs out there that have more time, writers, photogs, access and geographic advantage that can do a better job of what I’ve been doing, here and elsewhere, for the last three years.

The good news, if you’re a fan of the site, is that I’m not content to disappear completely. Rather, starting today, you’ll notice that things are pretty different around here.

As a detail-obsessed, prone-to-reminiscing music journalist, I’ve spent far too much time scouring message boards, tour announcements and out-of-date myspace blogs looking for details on past show dates, limited-time-only album presales and other obscure facts that tend to get lost as the internet marches on. In response, I’ve decided to refocus OH-H as a sort of indie rap archive of these details. On this new site, you’ll find plenty of past tour dates, comprehensive links to past interviews, official music videos and so much more. My hope is that it will be of equal use to music journalists looking for information and music fans trying to settle an argument about whether some show happened in 2005 and 2006. (I’ve experienced frustrations as both.)

With all of that said, thanks so much for reading.

Welcome to the only indie rap archive on the web.

— Tim
