Bishop Nehru – Me & My Thoughts
Bishop Nehru just released My Disregarded Thoughts on November 8th! Recorded and engineered in DJ Premier’s studio in Queens, with production from Premier, MF DOOM and Bishop himself, the album is grounded in trap-leaning bombast, orchestral diversions, astral jazz, spaced-out funk and the sample-heavy beats of Dilla and Madlib. Any thoughts?
TTRRUUCES – Sad Girl
“Have a little patience, you may find just what you’re looking for.”
TTRRUUCES’ amazing storytelling style fixed to their unique sound through touching animated video is really like no other! It’s the best debut video of the year out there! Taking us strongly back to the 60s-70s psych-folk era. Zappa, Queen, Bowie, and Nirvana are proud! The protagonist of the videography – Sadie – will melt your heart and brains out. The track constantly shifts into an individualistic amalgamation of other genres and sounds, taking in choral-style vocal harmonies approaching freshly served rock opera concepts.
On Man – United
United. A fully realized audio-visual contemplation of human relationships, the push, and pull of commitment, the unsettling imagery a question mark of a sort – why is this happening? who are these people? how do they relate to each other? The perfect partner to a soundtrack of disruption; disconnected echoes of voices and repeated phrases. It’s breathtaking in every serious electronic way!
