Bizeeee: “Looking For It” – an out-of-this-world scenario!

What separates #Bizeeee aka #4ez from many of today’s rappers, is his indestructible delivery. Every verse no matter what he is rapping, he relentlessly pound his rhymes into your head mercilessly, with bone crushing stanzas and a ruthless attitude. Every word spoken shows an aggressive mood and seemingly cannot be stopped by anything. With this intensity also comes a very dramatic and cinematic driven production. This intense style is especially shown 4ez’s latest single, “Looking For It”. This song is driven by a rhythmic drumbeat, hissing hi-hats, and harmonized by futuristic and spacey keys. This is a chance for 4ez to step

Quintin Tarintinto: “No Self Pity” – dense articulation!

Tallahassee, Florida rapper, Quintin Tarintinto has his 2019 fifteen track project, “No Self Pity”, out right now. This is the record many of Tarintinto’s contemporaries would love to make, but they don’t have a sufficient enough state of consciousness to draw inspiration from, or truly focus the menagerie of their minds upon. It’s the most topically cohesive, palatable and headily conscious Tarintinto ever been for an entire set of songs. His universal vision makes it all work together in perfect, coalescing, high-tech harmony. A less knowledgeable Quintin Tarintinto might have asked compelling questions and never get to present the answers projected

3Mind Blight: “Make This Right” – transcribes emotions into music perfectly

Let’s begin with the fact that 3Mind Blight doesn’t make music for the fans or the label. In the era of rappers who are doing it for the gram, 3Mind Blight is all about the art of self-expression: he isn’t rich, he isn’t cocky, and he respects those who came before him. His style is not rap focusing on bling or hedonism, instead he observes and tries to teach us everyday lessons about ourselves, but his focus is also knowing he is better now than he once was and only plans to get better, something that should be recognized as

Flo: “Mix in a Water” – all of it is crisp and gorgeous!

James Florio aka Flo, is a Toronto, Canada based producer, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist. His signature style combines diverse musical elements and genres together to create an immersive listening experience. The rich mixture of delicate sounds, booming basslines and silky, chopped vocals will keep listeners coming back for more. His latest single is “Mix in a Water”. Is there any way to describe the music of Flo other than stylistically shimmering, and rhythmically hypnotic? Not really: write down those words and free-associate as much as possible with eclectic and luscious, and chances are you’ll have written Flo’s press blurb. The Flo

Capo 2G: “Pullup” ft. KirkoBanz – a tidal wave of aural sensation!

Capo 2G is a Hip Hop artist currently based in Las Vegas, Nevada. Originally from Lagos, Nigeria, his unique, island fused sound which he defines as AfroHipHop is one of the many factors giving rise to his growing fan base. Capo 2G’s close relationship with A-listers such as Rae Sremmurd gives him the opportunity to learn from the front lines as he prepares himself to step into the spotlight. He begins his first solo tour in Trinidad, Colorado on February 21st. This isn’t exactly a startling revelation, but hip-hop has always been rife with emcees who style themselves as unrepentant

The Bloody Jug Band Release New Album – “Rope Burn”

Featuring 13 tracks including “Beautiful Corpse” and “Dorothy Gale”

The Bloody Jug Band, who hail from Orlando, Florida, have been making music for over six (6) years and have pretty much carved out their own lane as far as jug bands go, and continue to do so with their new album, “Rope Burn” which dropped on April 13th.

With 13 new tracks drawing influences from the dark, dirty south of the 20’s and 30’s, each track  was created using traditional jug band instruments including: washboards, mandolin, harmonica and a washtub bass. Combined with the bands own musical influences ranging from: Tom Waits, Johnny Cash and The Band, the end result is a sound that has been labeled as Roots rock meets Florida Swamp Noir, with a heavy dose of southern gospel and outlaw biker rock.

The Bloody Jug Band consists of eight members and with names like: Cragmire Peace, Stormy Jean, Brian Shredder, Steevil, Bloody Rick Lane, Seth Funky, Big Daddy Jerm and Baby Dingo,  and lyrics that weave tales about serial killers, insanity, and blood thirsty unicorns; make no mistake about it—-this isn’t your grandmother’s jug band.

Lead singer, Cragmire Peace has always been an evocative story teller and does not disappoint on “Rope Burn”. He delivers haunting lyrics with a gravelly voice not unlike Wolfman Jack’s, that lends credence to the horrifying tales he sings about. And yet, its that same gravelly voice that blends so well with Stormy Jean, the female lead vocalist, who’s voice has got just a much grit as it does delicacy. She soars high with heavily influenced southern gospel runs and then kicks you in the gut with her bellowed howls. The musicians in the Bloody Jug Band are top notch and the artistry in their song-writing is so well crafted that you can’t help but to find yourself singing along to the dark and disturbing lyrics the Bloody Jug Band has become known for.

On “VolfKiller” the albums lead track, listeners are met with a crunchy rock track, full of riffs that hook you by the time you get to the chorus. On the contrary, “13 Steps” one of the album’s closet things to a ballad, is fronted by Stormy Jean- who delivers heart-wrenching southern gospel flavored choruses that conjure up dark gothic, folkloric images of the oppressed marching to their death beds.

The Bloody Jug Band’s lyrics have always been heavily influenced by the macabre and “Rope Burn” stays true to those roots. With lyrics like, “I’ve been digging ditches, where your soul switches, on “The Undertaker” and “So they wrapped a rope around my neck for what I’ve done/a cold dead morning shows a blood red sun/” on “Jezebellion,” and “My sweet ole parents, they locked me up when I was just a child,” on “Asylum Blues”, they cover pretty much every dark spot on the underbelly of society—which puts them in their own lane as far as jug bands go.

The album’s stand out track “Beautiful Corpse” is also it’s most disturbing one, lyrically, “ I knew you were the perfect choice the first time you came around/so later on when I took your breathe I was hesitant to put you in the ground/propped you up, put make-up on, put you in a pretty blue dress/had to make sure you stood out from the rest”. However, within about 2 seconds of play, you’re pulled in with Cragmire’s gravelly vocals, wailing blues harmonica and a chorus so punchy, you will find yourself singing along to it, in your car with such enthusiasm, “I knew you’d make, knew you’d make/ I knew you’d make a beautiful corpse/,  that the people at the stop-light next to you will accelerate at much faster pace than normal. Fists will be waived in the air, Some ‘effed up choruses will be sang…and you will love it. “Beautiful Corpse” is also set to be the first scheduled video released from “Rope Burn”.

And while it’s understood that the songs on Rope Burn don’t serve as some sort of confessional for the band’s main songwriter, Cragmire Peace—not without an active search warrant, that is. They are clearly a dark dive into fantasy and not a way of life for him and his band. But make no mistake about it—the Bloody Jug Band is not to be taken lightly. These are seriously talented musicians with an obvious kinship with the gothic-folkloric tales of the dark, dirty south they’re from. You can tell that this is the kind of band that is best savored live and puts a full on production onstage, dressing every bit the part as a backwater- bayou-insane-serial killer.

You will see skulls and there will be songs about the devil. And if Rope Burn is any kind of a peek into The Bloody Jug Band’s live show, than I can only imagine there will also be non-stop foot stomping, hootin’ and hollarin’ and plenty of hand claps from lots of rowdy folks drunk on whiskey. If you claim to love music and have an affinity for roots, the blues, rock and roll, outlaw country or just plain ole’ americana bluegrass, get this album. It won’t disappoint.
