off the group's bandcamp site without spending a penny! "It took a lot of time," laughs Fawksie 1 reflecting on the process.Audio Therapy
, officially released on October 22nd, proves to have been definitely worth the wait. Re-mastered tracks that honor the work of the former members in addition to all new songs anchor the effort. Skillfull rapping, singing, turntablism, dope beats and well-crafted interludes are all on full display. From the onset, the title track, 'Resisters' and 'Fox Camouflage' set a powerful tone for the album whose spiritual and political rhymes define the message throughout.
Fawksie 1 notes that a Las Vegas album release show is in the works as well as another date in Berkeley. Hopefully, Audio Therapy will see its way to OC.
