album: Red Pill – Look What This World Did To Us

Red Pill personifies his hometown of Detroit so well that all he is missing is a Faygo pop and a bag of Better Made potato chips. As a solo artist and a member of the Mello Music Group trio Ugly Heroes with Apollo Brown and Verbal Kent, he uses music to reflect the struggle, passion and resiliency of the Motor City – and the rest of the tough, blue collar folks that hold the world together.

On his album Look What This World Did To Us he personifies what it means to try and make your way as a young adult in today world. The album can best be summarized in his own words.

“This isn’t just hip-hop, this is an attempt to distill the disillusion and cure the hangover. It’s both a brilliant mission statement and a jazzy funeral for what was promised but never delivered.”


track: Grouper “I’m Clean Now”

Grouper creates an ethereal ambiance that drifts along to her voice in her new track “I’m Clean Now” which is out on her new 7″ Paradise Valley. While the picture accompanying the song is bright the song isn’t necessarily upbeat or glowing – but I’d say your mood will determine your take away on the song.
