Hearsay bits: new track from Dent and Fresh Breath, another Dispensary Music mixtape in the works (?) and two bands change names

This Mile High hip-hop really doesn't stop. Hot off the wire: Check out a brand new, hot-off-the-presses, literally fresh-from-the-lab jam from Dent, Flawless and Fo'Chief from Fresh Breath Committee called "Banghop." Ouch, these dudes are killing it. There's something for your ears after the jump.

Oh and just in case you missed it, our boy Big Joe Thunder's got something for your eyes over at BoxStateMusic, with some fresh graf flix and shots from the Company of Artists jam last night featuring Whygee and BrikAbrak, 1984 and Fresh Breath Committee.

Speaking of Whygee: You know that mixtape we've all been telling you about that he and F.O.E. have been working on, Dispensary Music? Seems there's some other local cats working on project with an identical name. Yep, and while we haven't heard it yet (or anything else about it, actually), the YouTube clip below seems to indicate that DJ Quote and one of his proteges, Iman S, are evidently working on their own Dispensary Music project (mixtape?).

Finally, we've received word that two local bands with pretty well established followings have changed their monikers. The first is group, led by Frankie Abbatecola, is Monroe Monroe, an outfit formerly known as the Legendary Beep Beeps. The other is Vonnegut, who will heretofore be known as Take the Oars.

"Surviving multiple line-up changes, and the rising number of groups in the country donning the same name," explains the latter group, which is expecting to release a new E.P. this fall, "there is no better time to embrace it." Monroe Monroe is also expecting to release a new album, recorded at the Blasting Room, later this fall.
