I’m so glad I downloaded the SXSW 2011 Torrent because if I hadn’t, I might have never discovered the hottest hip-hop act from Australia, Bliss N Eso. They have a huge following outside the US, but I’m hoping to change that with some upbeat rock & roll/hip-hop tracks below.
They have an alternative hip-hop feel, much like Atmosphere and Macklemore but more rock & roll and like Cage the Elephant with more hip-hop. Bliss N Eso did a tour in USA & Canada back in 2009 and did a 26-date tour in USA in late 2010. Here’s five tracks to show you how talented and dope Bliss N Eso is.
Down By the River
Where The Wild Things Are (ft. 13. Mind Over Matter)
The Sea Is Rising
Bullet and a Target Ft. The Zulu Connections Choir (Acoustic Version)
The first three songs are off Bliss N Eso’s latest album, Running on Air (July 2010), and the last two tracks are from their album before that, Flying Colours (April 2008).
