Download: Audible Mainframe, ‘Anybody Else’

We don’t process a lot of hip-hop here at Buzz Bands HQ [go here if you don't already], but with a big show headlined by fast-rising U-N-I coming up this weekend, I figure it’d be a nice time to introduce Audible Mainframe. The Boston expatriates’ rock- and soul-infused rap has gone down like a happy pill to a lot of local fans, and the six-piece ensemble scored big earlier this year when they took top honors in the AirWalk Unsigned Hero Competition. The victory earned them cash, a bunch of gear and a slot to perform on Spin’s stage at South by Southwest in March. The group’s sophomore album, “Transients,” was released Aug. 25, and “Anybody Else” kicks it off.
