The Friday MiniTape–4.13.12 Edition

Our first track today comes via a recommendation by Angry Asian Man.

Though her debut album, 4 Years & Counting … was released this past September, Jennifer Chung has been creating a following for herself for the past two years via YouTube; according to her website, she’s got more than 140,000 subscribers, drawn to her via cover tracks. (Her rendition of Adele’s “Set Fire To The Rain,” alongside New Heights, is also worth checking out.) Chung’s debut album is also avaiable online.

Based out of Brooklyn, Mighty Fine lists one of its’ genres as “grime.” And “Black Train,” the first single from their latest album, Get Up To Get Down, should make it clear why that’s the case.

Next one’s going under a cut. Why? It’s a neat little surprise I found digging through YouTube the other day.
