University of Illinois MC Ausar just released his first new track of 2018, "Familiar". The move comes at an auspicious time for Ausar, who has had a quieter year content-wise, but has played a lot of shows (including Pygmalion). The track also hits listeners with a different vibe than usual, ducking out of his boom-bap flow in favor of a more melodic, moody sound. Check it out for yourself below and be on the lookout for more coverage of Ausar on Smile Politely this week.
The SPlog is available to our community of readers and Editors to get the word out about upcoming shows, events, ideas, quick opinions, photos, videos, overheard quotes — anything really, provided that it doesn't break the law.
SPlog posts aren't meant to be read as full articles — most often, they are short, quick bits of information about something that doesn't necessarily warrant a full article, though are worthy of posting.
Smile Politely also allows businesses who advertise with the magazine to access the SPlog to promote most anything and everything that's going on with them in their world.
Ultimately, we monitor the SPlog closely, so if we don't post your submission, we'll get in touch with you and discuss why. If every submission got posted, well, things would get messy in a hurry. We hope you understand.
Editors' note: Smile Politely maintains the right to edit all SPlog entries for grammar, punctuation, and syntax, but will never change the meaning or content of any submissions.
