This Sunday morning we are bringing you some new Springfield hip hop! Here is a brand new release by artist “Renegade” aka “Ren” who is one half of the local hip hop duo “The Co-Pilots“. Ren just released an EP of solo material entitled Flowers EP, which you can find streaming on the player below. The EP was released last month and features six brand new tracks. The EP was also reviewed in the October issue of Activator Magazine.

We are not sure of any live shows Ren or The Co-Pilots have lined up at this point. Yes, we are adding this one to our Springfield album archive page which brings us to 45 releases catalogued and featured on our site so far for this year.

The Dixie Narcos: “Tinder Folk”


Psychadelic Rock group The Dixie Narcos based out of Jacksonville Illinois are back with yet ANOTHER album! Amazing!! This is their second album to be released this year, and it is called Tinder Folk, and you can find it streaming on the player below. It’s a whole thirteen tracks. Check out their Spotify page where you can also hear it all. Or find the album right here on bandcamp. According to Spotify this is the band’s seventh full length album (we could be wrong on that), and even according to their facebook it looks like they are working on yet another album.

The Dixie Narcos also released the album Soda Pop earlier this year. They played one show inside of our show space earlier this summer and as far as we know it’s the only show the band played this year?? A band that has released more full length albums than shows they’ve performed live?? We are adding this one to our Springfield album archive page, bringing us to 43 releases featured on our site so far this year.
