Jamaican Queens – Kids Get Away

Michigan’s own Jamaican Queens could be one of the biggest things to come out of Detroit since Dale Earnhardt, Jr. Jr. With a unique mix of indie and electronic elements, JQ comes across as a blending of Hot Chip and dubstep. Their music is a pretty good representation of just how weird these fellas are, and if you’re really interested, check out the website (it’ll throw you for a loop). With their self-titled album being the first release in what will hopefully be a long career, the band has nowhere to go but up. Check out the video for the track “Kids Get Away” from their self-titled album below. Read More…

The Mowgli’s “Waiting For The Dawn” Album Review

These days, many artists tend to put most of their eggs into one basket; they exert most of their effort into the hit singles that will appear on an upcoming album.  This often leaves the album cuts lacking, which are often the hidden gems of a truly great album.  With that being said, I was somewhat apprehensive when I put the latest album from The Mowgli’s, Waiting for the Dawn, into my car stereo and pressed play.  I had heard the initial track off the album, “San Francisco,” several times before, including on THE IMPACT, and I instantly knew it was a good song.  Actually, I didn’t think it was merely good, I thought it was great; I rarely feel this way listening to a song for the first time.  So, I had good reason to be worried that Waiting for the Dawn would be, like many other albums of the Digital Age, centered on a few good individual songs and fail to create its own identity as an album.
