Pure awesomeness, that’s what. This year’s crop features a number of epic ballads, rap superstars, and more. I think I’ll highlight my current two favorites, but you should definitely go check out the whole bunch or go back and revisit last year’s (particularly Under the Boat (featuring K. Hovel)).
First off, we have the Lobster Rock Anthem, about Aplysia californica’s crazy chemical defense (pdf) against lobster predation. I think this group is fantastic – clever lyrics and great style.
And then the award for best costuming goes to…Key Mesograzers. A rhapsody on Hay et al.’s 1987 classic
Great work, all! Can’t wait to see what they cook up next year!
