That show will feature live graffiti along with performances from ADAM, Awol One & Factor, Cadalack Ron and more. Two incredible bills that will be the talk of SXSW in the weeks after. If you are in Austin that week, make sure you post up at both venues.
We will also be on the ground with the official Uncommon Vs. SXSW Sampler CD. The CD is limited to 220 copies and will be handed out free at these performances exclusively. You can also get the sampler online digitally for free, but it will only be available on the days of SXSW (March 13-18) at our online store. The CD features unreleased upcoming music from the Uncommon roster and is mixed by Elmattic. More details on that to come.
Uncommon Records presents the debut (FREE) release from Adam Warlock, Dark Weapons (from Mars). Adam and his wife were the victims of an apartment burglary, causing every object that was left behind to be seen as a weapon for defense a week later. If you've ever been the victim of this sort of crime, you realize that normal items like that old baseball bat, the set of steak knives and that rusty hammer become your best friends when you're afraid of return visits.
Producer, Nasa turned to music that could provide both the comfort level needed and the energy needed to capture what Adam was experiencing. For this, his source material was exclusively from The Mars Volta. Nasa and Adam, both being big fans of the group, were able to take TMV's music and turn it into something totally new, and directed it toward the stress of the situation at hand. There are no TMV remakes or tributes on this album, everything is original. TMV simply provided the paint that was used to illustrate a brand new work of art. The track, Serpentine Steak Knives also features friends Subtitle and Elucid.
Throw in all the rage, sadness and shame that comes from near compliant neighbors and inept cops and you've got a compelling true life story. All of this eventually lead to Adam having to pick up and leave a neighborhood that he once loved. This album is a release of Adam's pent-up emotions from that incident. Dark Weapons is a powerful, personal, dramatic and passionate recording, and it's dedicated to all the victims in this world.
The album is presented for FREE at Uncommon's Online Store.
There is also a CD version for pre-sale that includes all the instrumentals, a poster and limited edition sticker.
Go pick up Subtitle's new LP, Shark B.R.I.E.F. over at the Get Crev Bandcamp page.

It's also got Gajah from Acid Reign and Uncommon collaborators Megabusive & Elucid, among others. This album is a raw peek at what will eventually become Shark BAIT which will be released later this year.
Our friends at Briefcase Rockers have dropped a new compilation called "Stealth Voltron". It features Uncommon emcee, Adam Warlock on a track produced by Nasa.

"Uncommon PSA" is just that, a Public Service Announcement and alert that Uncommon is here to stay. Enjoy Adam's anthem along with tracks from Labwaste, Gajah, Subtitle, Alpha MC and many more!
