When you gonna take a seat, dead queen?

In case you STILL haven’t check the 5 O’Clock Shadowboxers’ debut The Slow Twilight, fear not sleeping hip hop listener!  The good folks at Bloggerhouse have done you a favor and went ahead to list the track “Dead Queens” featuring Nico the Beast among the top 100 songs of the 2009.  Coming in at a cool number 77 (Ray Borque’s number to all 9 of you NHL fans left!), “Dead Qeens” along with the rest of the album is available for full streaming and DLing over at the 5 O’Clock Shadowboxers’ Bandcamp page.

Not to be outdone with just a simple mention of the Shadowboxers track, Dart Adams of Bloggerhouse penned an insightful essay on the Emergence of the Free LP and mentioned The Slow Twilight as the future of what “artists and bloggers are capable of bringing together” and how this means “deep shit” for record labels.

PS The long awaited video for “High Noon” off The Slow Twilight drops THIS WEEK!  It will premiere here at Beat Garden Site as soon as it’s ready!!!!
