Bilal recently sat down with Centric TV in New York’s Time Square to discuss his upcoming album, Airtight’s Revenge coming late summer/early fall on Plug Research.

Georgia Anne Muldrow needs a band. More accurately, Georgia Anne Muldrow is a band, she just needs her instruments. All the time. At every show.
But even without them, she and Dudley Perkins successfully warmed up a frigid evening at SOB’s with just a CDJ and the fOnk. At her first NYC show in six years, they may have forgotten how “cool” NYC crowds can be, even when someone they want to see is performing, as indicated by Dudley yelling “Ya’ll Scary!” after our halfhearted attempts at clapping. “Lets see if you can snap.
