After a year and a half spent lying in semi-limbo, the formerly Atlanta-based Hoss Records, currently located in Brooklyn, has some interesting new releases that are ready to drop. First up Nupping, the debut LP from Baltimore's Dope Body (co-produced by Hoss boss R. Mexico) is set to hit the streets on May 3. The album is a noise rock monster that dabbles in stripped-down art-punk and an avant-grunge scrape while maintaining an undeniable pop sensibility.
Dope Body plays WonderRoot on Thurs., May 12.
Hoss is also reissuing Jones Jones Jones, the debut from Baltimore’s psych-rap experimentalist Jones, with a run of hand-screened LPs that are limited to 500 copies. There will be CD and digital versions as well. Due out June 14.
Douche Chills, the long-awaited debut album from Mexcellent, will also see a release later this year, along with the first full-length from Baltimore’s hip-hop-noise auteur DJ Dog Dick. Stay tuned for more.

Beck and Alabama Shakes...that's about it. I'm sure there's an unknown or two I would…
Well, this years Music Midtown sucks!
I'm pretty sure he was 19.
3 people apparently love handing over an extra 40% in fees for nothing in return…
Dang. I thought they would name some actual headliners.
Forgot to mention that Iggy did a stellar show @ the Agora in the spring…
