BPMcast: Better Late than Never edition. Our special guest Matt joins the BPM squad to tackle last weeks glut of news including a fresh Lollapalooza line up, a new record from POP ETC (formally The Morning Benders), drama between Prodigy and Havoc of Mobb Deep, and a Justin Vernon hip-hop record. New releases we’ve been listening to this week include Screaming Females, Orbital, Voices From The Lake, Nicki Manaj, Hip Hatchet, M. Ward, Weird Dreams, Mars Volta, and Death and Vanilla. Sadly, no music this week.
