Episode number art 71

Holy frak! We have Twill Distilled on the podcast!

Twill is a nerdcore hip-hop artist from Columbus, Ohio! You might remember her from the interview we did with Alpha Riff a while back.

Her first album, “Planet Twill” was released on December 7th of this year and is pretty awesome!

We talk about how she got into music and her brief career as a fashion designer, how she found herself in Ohio, and what it was like in New York! She is pretty down to earth!

Since our now Former-Tech Monkey forgot to include it into the episode, check out the single from the new album “Moon and Back” on Twill’s Soundcloud at https://soundcloud.com/twill_distilled/moon-and-back 

Check out the Indigogo for the album at https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/welcome-to-planet-twill-debut-album#/

“You got one minute to say your peace.” -Alpha Riff

When we reviewed Alpha Riff’s Final Fantasy VI tribute album, he told us that he was getting ready to release a full length Hip-Hopera about his persona, Alpha Riff and his companion, MZ. I told him that I definitely wanted to review that when it was ready! The album dropped on November 8th, and due to things beyond my control, this review is posting late. But, by golly, this album is kick ass!

Following the story that was described in an exclusive track featured on Nerdcore Absolution: Volume II called “Digital Champions: Bounty,” this story follows the bounty hunter, Alpha Riff, who is rather well known for his craft. He is accompanied by an A.I. by the name of MZ.
