Un Usper
In this modern day of age, it's not uncommon for a band to practically give you their music and ask for you, the listener, to choose how much it's worth to you. Well, XBXRX is no exception -- they, like Radiohead, NIN and many smaller bands -- have put their newest record up on the web for a suggested donation.

XBXRX - "See Skies"

Un Usper is the fifth record from Oakland's collective unit, who wrote, produced then released the record themselves earlier this month. Not far from the seed Lightning Bolt planted, Un Usper unveils itself as 12 songs and 23 minutes of freeform cyber punk with exuberant rhyme. And, does the ambiguously aquatic cover design not call to mind the fine literature of Eric Carle?
