Psst—over here! Looking for that Attack of the Blogs Part 2 cut? If you’ve got your eye on that $1,000 Karmaloop.com gift card, it’s a good bet you bookmarked all 20 participating sites last night and are hopping from one to the next as quickly as your browser can carry you. Once you’ve collected the entire tracklist and sent the screenshot to firstname.lastname@example.org, be sure and take a moment to sit back and listen to this record, which finds AC teaming up with the Booth’s other favorite dual-letter emcee to detail two high school Crushes gone tragically wrong. After AC‘s vivid account of an initially-innocent dream date that lands a teen girl in hot water, Wichita up-and-comer XV steps up to the mic for a less clear-cut cautionary tale, warning that good intentions alone aren’t enough to render young lust consequence-free. Backed by Metaform‘s fittingly pensive sample work, Crush is a bracing record that raises quite a few big questions. If you’re looking to take home that grand prize, though, best not to get too lost in thought—there are 19 more tracks to go!
