Baltimore’s Rapdragons have quickly become one of my favorite listens over the last year. With albums like Ten Stories High and Ten Stories Hijacked, they’ve been hard to turn off. Now they’ve gone and done it again, this time in the form of a stellar mixtape entitled Featuring Baltimore. As the name suggests each track on it samples a track from prominent and not so prominent bands hailing from the fabulous Charm City. Arbouretum, Existencils, Lo Moda, Lower Dens, Baby Venom, The Art Department, Blood Baby, Double Dagger, Dope Body, Weekends, Mr. Moccasin, The Agrarians, and Ponytail all get tagged (and tagged well I might add) on this one. That being said, these two really stood out for me:
mp3: Rapdragons - Big Dreamers (samples Little Dreamer by Future Islands)
mp3: Rapdragons - I Went to Her feat. Seven (samples You Came to Me by Beach House)
