The Flobots

Okay so now we're getting closer to some hiphop oddness.

The Flobots are an alternative live hip hop band from Denver with 2 emcees/vocalists, viola, guit, bass and REAL drums. Caleb, a wicked cool listener, sent me this suggestion and what a cool one it is. Check out:

from their 2007 release "Fight with Tools" - mostly in 7/8 with a bit of 9/3 & 3/8
"Jetpack" from their 2005 EP "Flobots Presents....Platypus" - solely in 5/8! right on...

Its nice to hear real drums and emcees in the same recording and with the viola, very creative.

Check em out... and of course they will be on the Odd Time Obsessed radio playlist....

Keep the suggestions comin',
