KERBLOKI: Self-titled: CD

Oct 16, 2008

Sweet! Something good! It’s the Beastie Boys if they were more like classical music majors or something. Smart music, smart and creative lyrics, and three handsome white boys named The Chip, Kobra, and Urban Myth. I’m not very rap savvy, even though, like any good punk rock kid, I always loved Public Enemy and the Beastie Boys. It’s such a chill out record, with a tight old school Blaxsploitation feel, and even a wicked synth/electro feel. I’m digging the catchy dance track, “Please Don’t Die in the Ice” (or should that be “Da Ice?”), with its wicked layered synth beats and catchy chorus. This is the song those electroclash kids would be break dancing to. The nice thing about this album is that it goes from live drums/guitar/etc, to drum machine/synth in a matter of tracks. “I.T.U.” is a remarkable cool and chill-out instrumental that reminds me even a bit of Looper. Just you wait. In a year everyone will be wearing Kerbloki.
