Also released today: an 18-track independent hip-hop collection, "The Courage To Be An Absolute Nobody (An Ode to J.D. Salinger)," compiled by local digital label and distribution outfit Audio Recon. Absolutely free as a stream on Band Camp (and posted here), with a name-your-price option to download in just about any format you fancy. Featuring the talents of a bunch of dudes in the Audio Recon stable (s.a.i.n.t. Recon, Whois Louis, e. Brown, Yeti One) as well as some folks from farther afield (Los Angeles emcees Naila and 2mex, for instance).
