Crabs in a Bucket Premier

Thanks to Emerging Indie Bands in the UK for premiering Crabs in a Bucket and saying nice things about us. They know the deal.

E. Grizzly – Crabs In A Bucket – Audio

The US alt-hop creator E. Grizzly in collaboration with Scott Labenski released the LP Felipe Pupo on the 20th.

E. Grizzly

The approximately fifty five minute – thirteen track album, threads across stages of calypso, metal hammer and hip-hop with each piece offering something different. Whilst, as a result, each piece can be played in isolation – allowing Felipe Pupo to run its course finds the listener having been taken on a wide reaching journey with the different ideas that appear during the course of the album and more fully appreciate the conceptualisation of the release and thereby providing the complete context.

My pick of the release is the fifth – Crabs In A Bucket which brings in many themes from Felipe Pupo (which is available on bandcamp).

Felipe Pupo is here

So if you don’t know the story I was supposed to do this project with my good friend and bassist Jason Pupo. We wanted to do a live set that was the most fun possible. We obviously went with a Synth Calypso Punk set. We were talking about it for months and a day before our first practice Pupo passed away. This project was on the shelf for a while but then fellow anti hero, Scott Labenski, came through and nailed the whole idea. It came out sounding like english reggaeton punk which I’m totally down with.  And even though Pupo is gone he is still very much a part of this band. Kind of like phantom limbs he is our phantom bassist. Which puts this project in the middle of reality and some where else. So to Scott and Pupo. We finally finished it. Congrats! And remember 2 drink max before shows.  The online release shows will be in Seattle and Miami. The physical release show will be in Philly. Details coming soon. Happy Dia De Los Muertos!

New Grizzly Video

So this is the new video I did with Ronin of in Brooklyn.  Make sure to check him out.  His art and video is sick.  We decided to release this on Vimeo because the past few weeks I’ve been the target of some serious professional hacker sabotage.  Not to sure who would go through such measures to delete my videos on Youtube and my e-mail accounts on G-Mail but hey, maybe it’s a positive.  And of course Vimeo doesn’t have the right HTML for WordPress but it’s all good.  You can click the link below and I’ll be posting this on Tumblr, Facebook and a few hip hop blogs already have started posting the video.  I appreciate the love.  Always.

Waterwheel² – E Grizzly [music video]

Our homie E Grizzly, reppin the Philly Kid Grafix crew (Girard/Fishtown, Philly), has just released a dope new video featuring the ‘Waterwheel²’ track which is off of his latest mixtape – Generation 01000001 (Generation A). I’ve met with this dude a couple times already, so I gotta say that he is not only a talented performer, but this dude keeps its 100% with real hip-hop as we love it. It’s raw, unpredictable at times and always brings a new flavor to your palette. Definitely peep his mixtape, Generation 01000001, below. The entire project features the production of RJD2. Now, dig in!

Here’s a clip from his camp’s press release…

“PKG artist E. Grizzly has released his new music video for “Water Wheel²”, the forthcoming single from his latest mix “Generation A”. To view the clip from the Indie Hip Hop Award winner, click the link below. The original song comes from an RJD2 instrumental called Water Wheel. E. Grizzly is known for his dark poetic lyrics but lightened the mood a bit with this song that he wrote for all his friends around the country.

It is part of a series of videos that will be released by PKG and E. Grizzly called “Generation A”. All the videos will transition together as one story but it will be up to the listener to arrange the videos in any particular order they choose. The Water Wheel² video features E. Grizzly riding through the streets of Philadelphia at night. It was directed by local film maker Alex Halpin and edited by 9th Element at PKG Studios.”
