The usual sunny-blonde MC Lars has dyed his hair black in support of his latest project, The Edgar Allen Poe EP. The post-punk laptop rapper is tackling what he passionately refers to as, “Lit-Hop.” In the past he’s released several songs about Edgar Allen Poe: “Mr. Raven” (with a Brand New sample) off his free 2004 The Laptop EP and “Annabelle Lee R.I.P.” (with a Tegan and Sara sample) off the free 2011 mixtape, Indie Rocket Science.
The Edgar Allen Poe EP will be released on June 27th, however you can stream the whole thing and purchase the digital version immediately on bandcamp.
Wired Magazine thinks MC Lars is one of the 100 Geeks You Should Be Following on Twitter. I think he’s an artist you absolutely must see live! Also make sure to grab those free albums. He’s got a handful of shows coming up:
