Feb 23 2010, 18:58 di wajzgajHere's some new stuff I've been listening in 2009. As far as hip hop goes there weren't many interesting records. There weren't any great records really, just a couple of solid ones. I haven't followed new stuff from other genres as much. Pretty much just new releases from my old favourites or random acclaimed record here and there.
Themselves - Crownsdown, The Freehoudini Mixtape
Dose One and Jel decided to get back to basics with their material in 2009. Though 'going back to basics' doesn't tell us much coming from these two. I can't say these two records sound like their earlier ones. More like version of their influences i.e. classic rap records from late 80s/early 90s. Dose is in fast rap mode here with occasional singing and all that other stuff he does. Jel is bringing in dope drums as usual. The mixtape came first as sort of an intro to the LP, giving an idea of the sound we're gonna hear on the official album. They've used the opportunity to invite all their past collaborators from the hip hop field to join in. …

Have your say - is Hip-Hop (Alternative / Underground) your fave genre?
Hip-Hop has been a bit flat of late, sadly. Except in the case of this powerful industrial beast!

Gen 26 2010, 18:33 di AlexanderSteele10. The Dead Weather – Horehound
Dark, sexy, and full of Jack White's unique funk we've all come to know and love, the Dead Weather's 1st album surprised me, so much that I dare say they are my favorite of all of White's projects. The White Stripes, though catchy in their cool minimalism, got boring to me quickly, and the Raconteurs, an able attempt at a more layered rock sound, were a bit generic and not nearly daring enough to turn my ear. The Dead Weather cuts a fair balance between simplistic and complex, and adds plenty of dark undertones while doing it.
One thing that may surprise a lot of people, it's not fronted by Jack White. Even so, the Weather's female lead singer (previously of the Kills) has an enticing, jazzy hiccup to her voice, which adds an interesting amount of emotion to her delivery. The entire album is solid, easy to listen to but not without an amount of depth, both to the lyrics and the composition. As a bonus…
Ago 19 2009, 17:31 di AlexanderSteeleIf you've never heard underground NY rapper Chris Palko (better known as Cage) before, I have a pretty good idea what you may think upon first listening to the surprisingly poetic intro on his new album, “Depart from Me.” He doesn't sound like a rapper. You're listening to this droning electronic organ sound, and you hear him drag his voice over those first few lines, which have to be somehow inspired by Edgar Allan Poe, and you wonder how this same guy recorded an entire album, or better yet, 3 albums, of rap music. It sounds a bit farfetched, but after listening to this album, Cage has quickly become one of my favorite rap artists in the business.
Cage is very unique, which is good as long as your only interest in the hip-hop department isn't the “Lil” guys or “Young” whoevers spouting out about their cars and bitches with an auto-tune strapped to their faces. Cage is a rapper who I haven't already heard before, he's not a copy, he's not another Eminem just because he's white. Honestly, he' so much better. …

Mislite da je vama loše? Nezadovoljni ste i depresivni jer vam život nije ono što ste zamišljali? Uživate da pratite emo trend i gledate na sve kao crnilo bez kraja? Pogledajte kroz šta je prošao reper Cage pa ćete shvatiti da vam i nije tako loše. Imajući na umu da je kao dečak bio svedok očeve zavisnosti od heroina, da ga je majka poslala u ludnicu, da su na njemu isprobavali delovanje tada još novog leka pod nazivom prozak što je rezultiralo pokušajima samoubistva i uživanjem narkotika u tolikoj meri da mu je to moglo u potpunosti uništiti život. Ipak Cage je ipak nekako uspeo da ispliva na površinu i postane ikona underground repa. Problemi sa ocem i njegovo loše igranje životne uloge koja mu je poverena deluju kao uzrok ne samo Chris Palko-vih već svih naših kasnijih problema u životu…ili nam je u nedostatku hrabrosti jednostavno najlakše da sve svoje greške prebacimo na druge. …
