After completely clearing out our submissions inbox, this 7-day old offering from Mic Capes and Drae SLapz made its way through the pipeline. As always, I prepared for the worst… but I was thoroughly relieved when I hit play. Puurple World directed the menacing, compelling visuals for “Well Known“; the record is from the Sheesh EP which will surely find its way to my car speakers the next time I hit the road. The combination of wax and film makes it easy to imagine how the Portland artists live day to day and the struggles they have to face, especially in St. Johns neighborhood. As I have been playing this on repeat since I came across it, I hereby give it two thumbs up. Thank your water and catch the vibe:
