No. 10: Max Moon -- Urban Outfitters
Neither SMU grad Astronautalis nor former PPT producer Picnic is a man with too much extra time on his hands. Indiviually, each of these talented hip-hop acts boasts a busy schedule: Astronautalis recently completed a Eurpoean tour alongside Tegan & Sara; Picnic, meanwhile, has been working on various projects, not the least of which finds him among Erykah Badu's hand-selected live beat-making outfit The Cannabinoids.
Somehow, though, the two mange to find some time--a little bit here, a little bit there--to link up, often over web cam, and work on yet one more thing: Their collaborative project called Max Moon.
