[kml_flashembed movie="http://www.youtube.com/v/KamqxWtwzgU" width="550" height="445" allowfullscreen="true" fvars="fs=1" /]

We continue to see Stones Throw Records expand their horizons beyond hip-hop, and as usual, they stray far, far left in genres. Bryant K is another example, with his single “Daisies Grow.” He’s been active on the NYC scene since relocating in the mid-90s from St. Louis, Prague and Berlin, and is known to be the “downtown swinger.” He was also the first to broadcast East Village Radio on Monday nights from 6-8 PM with a show called B-sides.

His 7″ single, “Daises Grow” is now on sale as vinyl or MP3, b/w “Stars”

The Foreign Exchange – “The Last Fall” Video

[kml_flashembed movie="http://www.youtube.com/v/4PanDa2DZ3g" width="550" height="445" allowfullscreen="true" fvars="fs=1" /]

The latest video off their third album, Authenticity, from The Foreign Exchange has left a few fans disturbed, with a much darker story than usual. It might be menacing but it’s still in the style of The Foreign Exchange and it’s just as genuine.
