One woman art-pop trickster The Sexbots is back with a rap album about losing it and becoming a cat lady. This is The Sexbots' Cat Party with kitty go-gos, a cat lady costume contest, and a pet psychic.
Towards the end of 2017, The Sexbots’ Ilima Considine called her work as she walked out of the courthouse with a stalking order against a co-worker. The Sheriff’s Department was going to serve him during his shift the next day. Her workplace responded by cutting her schedule to 5 hours a week- virtually firing her, because, “You’re the one with the problem.” Ilima was so mad that she went home and wrote a rap album about losing all her fucks and becoming a cat lady. Recurring themes of violence, street harassment, loneliness and quietly watching one’s life disintegrate - The Sexbots’ seventh full-length album “I Always Knew You Were a Bitch” is titled after a common response to a sexually unavailable woman or one who protects other women. Like the rest of the Sexbots’ catalogue, there is a surface prettiness to the sound which belies the dark lyrical content. It’s a rap album- but not a hip hop album, kind of like Jhene Aiko meets Serge Gainesbourg. Bell chimes and cosmic sounds tie together tracks from Oregon producers T-Walk, DJ Ceez, Adaptr, and Eugene’s wild child Asol.
Last known, the State of Oregon was pursuing an Extreme Risk Protective Order against Ilima’s stalker. She now has a safer day job.
The Sexbots is an international avant-pop experiment led by Ilima Considine, a queer Asian single mom who sets her inimitable vocals against electronic soundscapes from hiphop producers around the world.
This isn't glitter gay- openly gay MC Elton Cray brings the grit to gay rap, with classic vinyl-sampling, doom-tinged boom bap beats. Vision, hunger, and the perspective of the perennial outsider whose flow lulls with its smoothness until each calculated hard consonant hits like a slap on the side of the face.
Hosted by James Barela
He hosts a comedy night called "Sincerity is Gross" but I mostly follow him because of the food pictures that he posts of Facebook. Dude can eat and I get fat just looking at the pictures. He also appears as the dirty plumber- full butt crack mode in The Sexbots video "A List of Things I've Done Wrong".
Special guest- MIRA DEATH!!!!!!!
