Kids These Days – Hard Times EP

Chosen by Complex Mag (anybody still reading that?) as one of the Top Twenty Bands to look out for and praised by fans and critics alike for creating an own genre or at least the first good jazz/funk/hip hop band in ages – this 7 piece band from Chicago released a 7 piece EP last year, that went by mostly unnoticed. Out of several k’s of possible facebook connections with my accounts only 2 people i know liked them, hmmm? They definitely deserve better.

>>> Hug them here >>> Get them here >>> ps my fave track of the Ep is a track called “Summerscent” (of course that was my choice) which is somehow very reminiscent of the early hip hop / acid jazz collabos of the early 90ies in NY and London and it reminds me of a certain sound Pharcyde were known for, before music history tied them down to 3 of their hits. Feel good and proper music by this fresh new band.
