Clouddead is something ive never really been able to get into, but im giving the self-titled another listen as I speak. Hymie's Basement I never heard.

Overall though from what Ive heard I find anticon to be a pretty average independant rap label, eclipsed by similar offerings from Def Jux, Rhymesayers, and Stones Throw.
I will agree that, at least out of what I've heard, the best releases on DefJux or Stones Throw are better than the best releases on Anticon. The cool thing about Anticon to me though is that the bands have this certain aesthetic that's shared between them but pretty much unique to the label. I love when that whole communal aesthetic thing happens on a label. Totally different style of music but it makes me think of the heyday of Wax Trax, one of my personal favorite labels of all time.

Everyone should cop this if they're in to any kind of experimental hip-hop, there's no validator so you can B.S. an e-mail.

I also appreciate Anticon, though I find some of the stuff a bit too silly for my taste. Or too white, I don't know. Dose One's voice gets on my nerves, most of the time. My favorite Anticon release would be Odd Nosdam's No More Wig for Ohio. I suggest everyone go out and get that. Here are some others I enjoy:

Alias - Muted
Jel - Soft Money
Telephone Jim Jesus - Anywhere Out Of The Everything
Odd Nosdam - I enjoy them all
DJ Mayonnaise - Still Alive (****ty name, good music)
Thee More Shallows - Book of Bad Breaks

The only artist I've heard from Anticon so far is cLOUDDEAD, and I absolutely love them. I'm listening to the other artist you posted and I'm fairly interested. Not sure if I like them or not, I just want to listen to more of their material.

I'll take any uploads you are willing to give as well.

I liked the production of the clouddead video, but the vocal delivery was way too minimal.

But the Why? video totally won me over and I'm definitely going to check him out. What would you say is his best?

Get Elephant Eyelash, Alopecia, and Oaklandazulasylum. I don't know if Oaklandazulasylum will appeal to you at first, but Elephant Eyelash and Alopecia surely will.

Thar he blows!

I suggest starting with Elephant Eyelash, but The Vowels Pt. II is on Alopecia which is drop dead gorgeous as well.
