This week during my waking hours, while eating some cereal, making Deutsch study, and listening to The Current’s morning show I became privy to a local gem. Apparently, these songs have been out some 6 months yet they remained under my radar. I thought I would share something new, something innovative, and something with a sound so familiar and creative you might just be surprised. I introduce to you And The Professors…

 

Immediately one notices their multi-layered sound, the intense wall of sonic power that flows through these individuals. I am impressed with the difference and intelligence they present. And The Professor added a new level of noticeable quality to my morning. It gave me that feeling I had when I first heard ‘A Day in the Life’, The Beatles. And The Professor takes a classic concept and makes it anew.   One of the best things about this feel-good listening is that it is local, great for Sunday mornings and coffee. The song I heard was: See Through Brain, it lent a bittersweet nostalgia of yesteryear, how I felt young again to hear this melody. I hope it does the same for you. Lend yourself a listen.

Sometimes I think things need to happen.  This needed to happen- I found a video today through a friend on Facebook, C.M.J himself, that made me act.  C.M.J is part of the local Minneapolis underground hip hop movement.  I met him a few times a few summers back, he threw me a dope CD.  This video is full of excitement, and I must admit the beat and flow leave me on the edge of my seat at the library (I am studying).  Smooth.

I must run to class (a more in depth post to come later).  This is worth a listen, don’t waste your time!  Get on it!

Make your day and this song happen.  Listen locally.
