Alexander Spit – “Artesia” (ft. Action Bronson)
Like most with the travel bug, my desire to visit faraway places takes a backseat to a lack of funds or time to go anywhere. So I’m glad to have this new song by SF rapper Alexander Spit, who along with Action Bronson, “got the summer planned” and takes us on a train across Europe to eat, drink and flirt around the continent, ending up in Queens and Boise. I love how the end goes all Blade Runner cyberdelic with robot voice effects and eerie keyboards. It takes you on a trip, even if you’re just chillin’ in Artesia, California! His album A Breathtaking Trip to That Otherside is out Jan. 29 on Decon. Check out the recently released "That's Spit" as well.

Their tour kicks off Jan. 25 at Oakland’s Night Light; they’ll be at SF’s Hemlock Feb. 1, Hidden Temple Feb. 16 and LA’s The Smell Feb. 20.
