Three NEW tapes comin' at you this weekend!

mp-115
Bottled Up "BU2"
The second Maximum Pelt tape from Washington D.C.'s Bottled Up. Amped up and angular and full of nervous energy, Bottled Up's frantic surfy indie pop is highly recommended summer beach boom box listening. 



mp-116
Brother Tone & Levi Stress "Once Again"
Maximum Pelt all star beat maker, Brother Tone, has given us three instrumental gems over the past few years. Here he is, back once again, this time on the decks and also on the mic along with fellow MC, Levi Stress. Super jazz sample heavy, laid back posi rhymes, this tape is best listened to on your boombox in the basket of your bike. 


mp-117 
Fess Grandiose "Front Room Methodology"
Chicago beat maker and DJ, Fess Grandiose keep the vibe strong on "Front Room Methodology", seamlessly blending organic hip hop beats with house, tribal, and edm. The cup runneth over with super groovy energy that is best listened to at a hot after hours club on a Saturday night. 



All tapes are available now here. Catch Maximum Pelt this weekend in Chicago at Pitchfork Music Festival in the CHIRP Radio tent!
