Get Ready To Blackout

Watch out for a new album on San Francisco's Clocktower Collective label called Who Killed Jiminy Cricket from Midwest / West Coast Hip hop crew Blackout Sands.

Dusty melancholic, Blues ridden production def-juxtaposed with razor sharp rhyming that thankfully comes off poetic without being pretentious. For us the stand out tracks are its less moody affairs such as the relentlessly pile-driving Blackout or the dubbed out Blues bounce of Rhythm In Your Soul, but the album works as a whole (which is rare these days) and is definitely worth a listen in its entirety.

Check the opium funk and inner city aggression of this track from the album.
