EVERGREENONE AND TODD SYKES CD RELEASE >>>

Remember CD listening parties? We would all gather at a local club, listen to every track while sipping tasty beverages. Ah, the 90s. I was a bit disappointed to hear EvergreenOne and Todd Sykes didn't schedule a listening party for Milk on Wax, which dropped this morning. After listening to the album, three times no less, I'm even more disappointed. The album is fucking great. Kicking back with beers in Hell's Kitchen's back lounge with locals, including the two Tacoma hip-hoppers (check that: three including their resident DJ, Slimrock) responsible for these 12 dope tracks would have been righteous, raising a Pabst high with every T-Town reference.

Hip-hop has always been derivative, sampled. Elements of pre-slavery African tribal music, slavery-era Negro spirituals, Mississippi Delta blues and Motown soul and R& B imbued the earliest forms of hip-hop. But this is less true as the style is reduced to its simplest terms for entrepreneurial interests. The musicality, at some point, vanished. That's not the case with Milk on Wax; it incorporates jazz, blues and funk in its sound. Every word, with every verse contained in every song, is meticulously placed together like Frankenstein manufacturing his monster.

Download EvergreenOne and Todd Sykes' latest here. Then, call up your homies, invite them over for a barbecue and host your own listening party.
