With a forthcoming album on the horizon, newly announced set of tour dates, and a return to the Tru Thoughts label that introduced her to the world, Alice Russell sent us a treat to keep her in our ears. (Like, we even needed that.)
Hot of the heels off the Steve Glashier helmed video for Heartbreaker, comes Heartbreaker Part 2, an A Capella joint with a full Gospel Choir video directed by Bertrand Vacarisas, mixing up the sounds of Gospel spirituals and her own powerfully emotive takes on ‘broken relationships.’ Visually pairing the track with the Gospel sound, almost lends a different sort of subtext to the …
Although the image may seem funny, just look at Kosha Dillz’ face as the head of Moses, separating the trash instead of sea. His hard thoughts of anxiety and angst come forward on Moses Wasteland, an agressive and violent drug induced take that mixes odd future like lyrics with the original vibes of his “chainsaw music/Hairy Chest 2 Hollywood” EP released in 2005 on 12” vinyl.

The music is more emotional and resonates to a different side of Kosha, who recently gained notoriety on NYC’s CW/WPIX channel 11 Morning Show while freestyling with a tap dancer that is “Jewish, but …

The Rip Tide, according to the press release, is introspective and something about being places where we’ve been; I wonder if that includes the back room of Kmart where you were taken because you got caught stealing some makeup. “Santa Fe” kinda sounds to me like a more soft pop/Natalie Imbruglia-esque “pop” song. Catch the tour dates after the jump.
If you don’t know how to party, make sure you pick up real quick on the status of The Knux. This bad ass group of party rappers have taken the sweaty Animal House revolution to your actual home and frat house, raging out with the locals. If my research is correct, they are the first group to pull off a house party tour on a major label.
It goes to show up that the power of music is in control of the people, and if they can’t make it to the venue, we might as well all bring it to their backyard, literally.
