Stereo’s urgent, dense baritone delivery coupled with Barfly’s ranging, measured drawl recalls the work of such delightfully contrasting vocal duos as Cypress Hill and the Smut Peddlers. Poetic lyrics and themes that have more in common with Gram Parsons than Nas. Infectious, sing-along hooks that have more in common with Garth Brooks than De La Soul. All of it set to a backdrop of cohesive beat selections which draw from a spectrum of folk, rock and country while never feeling shoe-horned into the rap genre.
These unlikely rap troubadours earned credibility and paid dues within the culture of
hip hop and rap music respectively as members of some very respected West Coast crews. Stereo as a member of fabled L.A. rap collective The Shape Shifters and the world famous CBS graffiti crew while Barfly made his bones as a member of Seattle’s Oldominion crew and with his former group The Saturday Knights. The unusual name and their startlingly un-hip-hop image may give you pause but the music undoubtedly speaks for itself.
