A pop punk rap rock hybrid of the joys of adventure, the need for space, and lots of other nerdy rhymes in the cleverly titled album ...Needs Space. My outer space loving heart has to have a soft spot for the everyman in orbit storyline of opening track "...in Space!". The video game love on display in "Boss Fight" and the clearly Zelda-centric track, "Zeldaddiction". Grab these bouncing jams for download or in the shape of a compact disc for $10 via hiphopmcdougal's Bandcamp page.
I am very happy to announce volume 3 in a monthly series of 5 song "mixtapes" from GM4A. The series is called Hey! Listen! and asks you to do just that! Check out the first mixtape page for info about how this mixtape series works. We are bringing you an extra heavy dose of VG rock on this album from the likes of Chile based ThePlasmas as well as East Coast rockers Rare Candy! Not only that, but we have a great laid back VG remix from all around nerd musician sli, and some great nerdcore hip hop from hiphopmcdougal. We top it all off with a beautiful closing song from NES Rock newcomers I Fight Dragons. All this is wonderfully labeled with artwork by good friend Leo Camacho. Well don't just sit there, dig in!

About the artwork:
The artwork is a remixed version of an art piece titled "The Unusual Suspects." The artwork was created last minute by Leo Camacho (who will be next months artist as well), so huge thanks to him on putting something great together on only a few days notice! Sadly we had our original artist have to drop off the project due to family affairs, but best of luck to her, and hope to have her on a future album!
Thanks again to everyone who checks out this album! Thank you for taking an interest in brand new and amazing music! Thank you to all the bands and artists kind enough to contribute their hard work for the mixtape! Thanks again to Hotdog Storm for hosting duties! Also thanks to any other sites, artists, blogs, or just regular folks who spread the word about these mixtapes!
Recently, the amazingly catchy nerdcore rapper hiphopmcdougal released his latest EP, known as Songs for the Internet. The album is available for free release through his latest myspace blog. The album is seven songs about nerdy topics ranging from asking for internet donations, to Star Wars, and Sega. Definitely very catchy stuff (check my last.fm for how much I have been bumping him lately) from a slightly lesser known musician in the world of nerdcore.
A slightly older release of his came out very recentlt as well. The Time Circuits On EP, which came out in January, is already a contender for catchiest album of the year, at least in my book. Every song on this album blew me away when I heard it. Very recommended!
Be warned that both albums are extremely catchy, I think I sing half of the song Awesome=dr2 every time I buy a Dr Pepper these days, and the track Venomous Vapors is just an epic track about hiphopmcdougal's skill at every game he plays. The track People Don't Forget is one of the funniest minutes I have heard in some time as well. I can go on and on about every track though, just head over and download the albums!
So I have hastily tossed together a quick mix of love songs for all the nerds and your significant others to enjoy! And I hope you do. If you decide to play this for them, definitely let me know how that went in the comments!
Also, since I don't really have permission to be releasing these tracks I will only be having this compilation available until the end of February, so grab the songs while you can! Most of the songs on this mix are free and in higher quality from each respective artist, so definitely check out each artists website!
Sorry kids! The album is now offline! Check out the links below and dig up the songs yourself though! Most of them are free and all of them are amazing! If so compelled though shoot me an email and I might hook you up!
