I realized when I started this blog it would be different from my others. This one would be more “family friendly” now that I’m a mom.
Then something amazing happens that I just have to share. So I’ll admit, it might not fit this blog, and probably will not be considered “family friendly”. Though if you were a child of the 90s, you just might enjoy this.
Growing up a half hour outside of Washington DC, one of my favorite bands growing up was Fugazi. I remember just going up and down the driveway on my awful NASH skateboard listening to them through my yellow Sony Walkman. They were this genius local band that was able to gain success around the world, but keep their DIY attitude when it came to music and business.
Then later, when I was 10 years old, I got my hands on an album called “Enter the Wu-Tang (36 Chambers). Not necessarily a “rap” fan by any means, I couldn’t stop listening. This group was unique, creative, and just awesomesauce.
These two groups, though on different ends of the spectrum, easily became two of my favorite acts to listen during my “school age” years. This year, producers Cecil Otter and Swiss Andy came up with the smart of idea of honoring these two genius acts by mashing up their songs. What they came up with is 13 songs with originality composed with extradorinary precision. They appropriately titled the album 13 Chambers.
Ghetto Afterthought, Forensic Shimmy, and Sleep Rules Everything Around Me are just three of the songs I’ve been playing nonstop. I’ll admit, it was a little fun to read the song titles first and then guess which songs would be mashed up together based on the titles.
13 Chambers was released yesterday for FREE.
This is 100% my own honest opinion. No one has influenced me otherwise and I was in no way compensated for this review. This review is solely based on my own experience with this product.
