Mood Ruff's new studio album called "I Do My Own Stunts," a classy collection of Hip-Hop filled with fine malt lyrics, butter beats and off the wall tactics. Singles include Rocketship, a cool breezy blend of funk and jazz that makes it the feel good song of the year; and Blow The Bins, the essential throw-back tune geared to keep the attention span of any age with an 80's style and today's flare. The entire album is ram packed with personality and an abundance of musical flavors.
Three years after releasing debut album "Pilotinstaller," Slovenian extraordinary Ales Uratnik a.k.a. NON FINIRe mai, produced a new masterpiece entitled "Katzenjammer". It's inspired in part by the Rudolf Dirks comic The Katzenjammer Kids. The Katzenjammer Kids from 1897 featured Hans and Fritz, twins in the battle against any form of authority. The extended meaning of this word today is unhappiness, depression, the more general sense of what one might call a case of the willies. Alternate songs present computerized and complex compositions without musical barriers and genre fixations. With electro acoustic compounds, NON FINIRe mai is a true trail blazer of free form sonic art. The album features experimental drummer and percussionist Adam Kriney (ex. The National Blue) from New York City as well as mastermind Camden Chamberlain (Deliccato) and his lovely wife Vanessa (Geisha Glory) from Salt Lake City. This CD presents a cocktail of avant rock, electronic, jazz, industrial, folk and experimental music. It's beautiful, darkly seductive and absolutely brain busting.
