Gangstagrass Album Streaming On Spinner
Gangstagrass joins the likes of The Beach Boys, The Temper Trap, and The Walkmen in this week's AOL Spinner's Full CD Listening Party.
Rappalachia shows off the style that made Kool Keith (Ultramagnetic MCs) legendary on “Western,” ripping cowboy rhymes to a bouncing beat, augmented by banjo and dobro pyrotechnics. “Shoot Dem,” featuring T.O.N.E-z, suggests a hoedown at a Jamaican dance hall, with T.O.N.E-z laying down his usual tougher than tough flow over a big stomping beat. If Jimmy Rodgers could have rapped as well as he yodeled, he might have cut something like “Gunslinging Rambler” which features rapping by R-SON. Rench fills in for Rodgers as R-SON spits out his heavy-duty ranch hand poetry.
