Deep Concentration :: Lady Valore Drops Knowledge On ‘IRL’

a4280642828_10

In my quest to become the Superman of indie blogs, I think that Virgil Wolfe has become my Jimmy Olsen.  One trip through his timeline, and I manage to keep finding dopeness.  This go-round, it’s SavannahGeorgia-based Lady Valore that caught my attention.  Her latest release, IRL, did all the right things to catch my attention… dope cover, interesting song titles, and a guest appearance by another recent Virgil Wolfe discovery, cunabear.  Naturally, I decided to dive in, and I was certainly not disappointed.

Lady Valore has a very conversational style and delivery, making her come off as the underground hip-hop version of The Ancient One from Doctor Strange.  Her lines of rationale and observation are interesting and thought-provoking, and the production (the lion’s share of which is done by 5AM, with contributions by DRMAMatty MeatloafSunglow and (‘i’s’)) is abstract enough to stand out, but strong enough to support the unique flow.  For a name your price purchase, you really can’t go wrong with this one.

Scary Hours :: Cunabear Presents ‘Sidequest 01’

a1064895580_10

Virgil Wolfe has proven to be not only a man of considerable talent, but a man of good taste as well.  If he recommends a piece of music, it is definitely not meant to be taken lightly.  When he recently posted about sidequest 01, a project from Savanna, Georgia-based cunabear, I was so fascinated by the cover art that I had to listen.  Needless to say, I was not disappointed.  The music is as textured and mysterious as the album cover, and the beats take you to some very distinct places in regards of mood.  Definitely top notch work.
