Written by on 2014/04/04 in New Music with 0 Comments

In 2012 Paste Magazine listed Milton Hall as the #3 artist to know in South Carolina. It was a kind and most likely unexpected nod to the underground artist who played hook laden lofi pop. This is Paste Magazine after-all. The ranking was however deserved. Numb World was an adventure of a listen where unintelligible backwards […]

Written by on 2014/03/28 in Hip Hop, New Music, SC Hip Hop with 0 Comments

While some of my fondest musical memories from high school are from Lollapalooza, the momentum […]
