I think this month was a bit better in terms of quantity with five tracks that I certify 4-stars on my iTunes. Yes I put star ratings on all songs, with 1 stars usually finding the trash and 4-stars and above getting blog attention.
First comes T.I.M.E., an alternative hip-hop group from DC & Richmond, Virginia. They got a soulful sound and reminds me of The Roots. Below is “Da Astronaut” and if you want more of their music, check out their soundcloud.
Next we got Justin W with “I Can’t Sleep” featuring Uno Hype. If there’s one guarantee with Justin W, it’s that the production value of his songs are top notch which is noteworthy since he’s producing most of his own songs. The beat bumps, the flow is good, the hook is solid. Follow Justin W on facebook and twitter.
Sorry to spotlight the same artist in one post but Justin W sent me this in early March, and I didn’t think he would send me two great tracks in one month but I have been proven wrong. “Awesome Sound”, dope production, flow is good and catchy hook. Plus the vocals getting stretched out and turned into part of the instrumentals is clever.
The Rubbish Zoo are an alternative band from Wyoming who recently moved to LA. They have an alternative sound similar to Mouth’s Cradle but not electronic and with great instrumentals that keep you into the song. Look forward to more from these cowboys.
Lastly comes UK Left Step Band, who calls their music “wild style”, which is pretty accurate to me. They are influenced by reggae, dub and old school ska. They have a truly unique sound and interesting instrumentals. Follow LSB on facebook and twitter.
