  • Capybara, petting a terrifying creature that may or may not be a capybara.
In our crusty old print edition this week, our music feature is on Saharan Gazelle Boy, the solo project of Capybara member Darin Seal. I wrote it! Read it here

As we've reported on the blog, Capybara is doing some reuniting in 2011, with plans to spend the year holed up in a house making music. But apparently they've gotten an early start on things, because yesterday they gave unto the internet a new song.

New SSION track on BUTT magazine's BIAS mixtape

Posted By on Mon, Dec 27, 2010 at 2:32 PM

l_d6a3029f472c460c9c41f7f39dbd8617j.jpg
For the record, all of the capitalized words in that headline up there are grammatically correct. Anyway -- BUTT, the magazine for hipster gays, does these mixtapes that it gives out at weekly parties in San Francisco. Along with Honey Soundsystem, they've put together a new one, called Happy Holigays!, that you can download for free right now on the internet. 

Typically this would not be blog fodder here at Wayward except for the fact that SSION has a brand-new song on it. It's called "Earthquake." Check it out here

He's an underground dude, so it's kind of surprising that Tech N9ne hasn't released, like, a hundred mixtapes already. Just before Christmas, he finally dropped his first one, Bad Season. You can snag that shit over at XXL

And in a recent interview with Hip Hop DX, Tech talked about hanging out with Lil Wayne in prison. It's good stuff.
