Hip Hop Heads
As Look Daggers brow-furrowed frontman 2Mex raps with characteristic sophistication over the psychedelic punk-jazz soundtracks deftly helmed by keyboard auteur Ikey Owens, you may find yourself experiencing a particular sort of maximal moment. To be specific, its the same rare energy that once hovered around the high points of everything-is-possible bands like Talking Heads, A Certain Ratio or those mattress-melting experimentalists Can, whose commitment to rhythm über everything find a complement in one of the only bands to marry rock and rap without morning-after regret. A hip-hop hybrid for the head case in all of us.
