DBD 5.31.12 Home Brew Crew

DISCLAIMER: Contains no materials regarding the domestic manufacture of beer. Contains higher than normal quantities of hip hop geekery. Caveat lector.

It's been a while since I've properly geeked out over hip hop in DBD form, and since I don't have anything particular on my docket tonight I thought I'd get a bit evangelist in support of my favorite group of the moment: Home Brew. Essentially, they're a bunch of mates from New Zealand who make dope raps, ostensibly in exchange for money but I think mostly just because they really love hip hop (because I'm pretty sure they aren't actually making any money off this shit). Their oeuvre as of writing consists of four EPs and a double LP, but look, let's just talk about Last Week.

Home Brew - Thursday

Last Week is Home Brew's third EP, but I think it'll always be my favorite. It's a seven track concept album without even a hint of pretension: hey, here's seven songs about last week, one for each day. In conceit and execution, the EP is seamless and tighter than a nun's anus. It's normal life set to mid-70s soul samples, cool keyboard riffs, and flute loops. It's music about trying to find the joy in everyday life when you're broke, hate your job, and don't want to get up in the morning--usually through combinations of music, booze, and weed.

This shit? It's real as shit.

I could talk about any of Home Brew's offerings in length, but if you give Last Week a quick listen and don't feel a little bit compelled to go a little bit farther down the rabbit hole then hey it's probably just not your thing.*
