Lila – A group that uses hip-hop to motivate and accentuate the qualities of the other genres we love, LiLa shies from no sound. They are proof that hip-hop can take any direction and be successful while still staying true to the integrity of quality music.
The Bronzed Chorus (Hello Sir Records) – “So Many Dynamos make MAGNET a mixtape: The Bronzed Chorus “Overpass Sunrise” Wasoba: The Bronzed Chorus are two people that sound like at least four, but this song is so perfect that it completely transcends that limitation. As soon as that guitar hook comes in, it just makes all the sense in the world. Stovall: Although their record is full of “I can’t believe only two dudes are playing this” type of moments, this song is the obvious jam. Seeing them play it live only makes you appreciate it that much more. Kay: The drummer plays keyboards without missing a beat. It’s really impressive. ” Magnet Magazine
