A new soundclash album from Black Lantern’s MILD MAYNYRD, who brought you the Western-themed hip-hop adventure HILLS RUN RED, and epic beat excursions THE PARALLEL and DEAD HERRING. Previous soundclash albums by MM have seen him take on Biggie, FELT, and The Flaming Lips - this time he attacks Jay-Z accapellas, repositioning HOVA as an electro warrior. Download and enjoy.

If you’re gonna send someone to save the world make sure they like it the way it is… Beyond the valley of the dolls the faint rumble in the distance are the purring engines of your extinction. They are the multi-dimensional men of anger, hypomyth, hard light holographic band members with built in sigmont fraudulent moodswing modulators… They are gallivanting spacemen making music with solar powered calculators… All aboard hail bop and let’s save hip hop no matter how much you hate it.
