The new releases chart this week includes a lot of older music: some reissued and some recently dug up and released after the fact. The all new releases include Sixo's The Odds Of Free Will on Fake Four Inc. and the new one from Jacob Snider. Snider is rapper Cas One signed to Sage Francis' Strange Famous label who, along with DJ/producer Figure, this week drops the album So Our Egos Don't Kill Us. Among the older music as new releases this week is the Camp Lo collection of rare and unreleased demos, via Persia Records, that previously had been floating around in digital and tape versions. Aptly entitled On The Way Uptown: The Uptown Saturday Night Demo it is a nod to their 20 year old hip-hop classic Uptown Saturday Night. Included in this new 17 track release of older music is an earlier version of "Sparkle" as well as a rawer sounding demo version of “Krystal Karrington.” There's also the "Sedgwick Ave. Demo" version of "This Is It (Luchini)" as well as such other tracks as "Superfly" and "Coolie High Is Life."
