Whut It Dew? Just ask Andrew Kenny.

Rapid Ric has pushed more product than Stringer Bell. After a prolific run of underground releases, the Mixtape Mechanic finally dropped his proper debut this year, Whut It Dew: The Album, a cameo-studded effort that's a literal highlight reel for Texas hip-hop. Rapic Ric also produced the video for “PLP,” featuring Lil' Boosie and Gerald G.

The Wooden Birds' Tour Diary
Over the Fourth of July weekend, Andrew Kenny's hosting a backyard BBQ that will serve as the backdrop to Wooden Birds' "Criminals Win," the second video for the new album, Two Matchsticks. Until then, here's his NPR-friendly recent tour diary, documenting a trip to New York, and a free EP, which boasts exclusive covers of Hall & Oates' "Maneater" and Kenny Rogers' "Ruby, Don't Take Your Love to Town." Wooden Birds grace Mohawk on July 20.

Equals, “Electric Blanket”
In lieu of the expected footage of Akina Adderley at the Chronicle's Paper Cuts, OTR dug up this Austin Music Weekly gem of Equals, a promising new instrumental math-rock that will be soon demanding your full attention.

Correction: An earlier version of this post overlooked Wooden Birds' first video for the new album, "Two Matchsticks."
