LAMEBOT "Crunk Whomp"
Another regular on the blog has just released a new project, this time it is LAMEBOT, who has made some very dope spaced out, funk/hiphop/house/ or whatever you want to call it music that is infectious and able to take you out of your comfort zone and let you freely roam the sonic domain (that might be a bit convoluted.) This time, LAMEBOT has taken on a rather surprising genre...crunk. This is one of the more intriguing albums I have listened to, my first reaction was, what the hell is going on here. The vocals are exactly what you would expect and through first listen that is all I was able to focus on. Luckily, LAMEBOT has included the instrumentals to the project as well which are incredible, as you would expect. After absorbing the instrumentals, I went back and checked them out with the vocals and it all made sense. This is one of the more risky albums in recent memory, because LAMEBOT is using a genre that I assume, most of his fans are not very fond of, but brings us into that world, and makes us understand and even appreciate crunk a bit more, very impressive. Check out the album and give it a few listens and make sure you keep an open mind and ear...it will click and you will see the dopeness of this album.
