CMJ. This kind of stylistic mish-mosh is exactly what we wish we saw more of at CMJ; for maximum mind-fuckery, we recommend showing up early and taking it all in. You'll hear from inventive, incisive D.C. rhymesmith Billy Woods; Wreck and Reference, a boundary-pushing California two-piece that blurs together noise-rock, industrial and black metal; droll, nasal-voiced Bronx rapper YC the Cynic; local ecstatic-psych pros Guardian Alien; and more.
