The eponymous LP was released recently which showcases a spread of moods some music of protestation, others of party mood, with compositions ranging from rock derivations, to deep-soul, yet all with a hint of Caribbean flourish and urban rap contained within.
The middle of the bakers dozen tracks is Equal Opportunity.
The US alt-hop duo Stop Resisting! released the LP Symbiotic on the 30th of November.
The name of the duo gives a clue as to the nature of their material which directly confronts state sanctioned injustices and social divisions which are endemic in much of the world.
Rather than taking a grenade to the party, Stop Resisting! create music which quietly reaches out an arm to all, in a call to resistance against the system rather than the irrelevance of what the 1% direct are those at fault, in a cohesion of electronica, guitar and harmonised vocal.
Most recently to surface – the track The Metaphysic Unseen, which neatly sidesteps all preconceptions of the genre and also features a music project longer stay readers will recall – The Sexbots – in a track that has an exploratory air to it, leaving the listener delighted they have found yet another iteration of urban rap that breaks the normality.
The US alt-hop creators Afrovelvet and Nate Gski collaborated to release the three track single Not Just A Body on the 31st.
Afrovelvet and Nate Gski
Delivering a message of changing a societal normality in the USA where not being White instantly results in discrimination, preconception and marginalisation.
In Not Just A Body (available on bandcamp) Afrovelvet + Nate Gski don’t rail in a rage, rather approach the quandary with an ethereal grace which, for its delicate feathering, leaves the listener in contemplative mood.
