  • Sam Reed – “This Is Love” (Release) | @samreedrva @DJHarrisonRVA @JellowstoneRVA

    Richmond, Virginia native, Sam Reed, has dropped her debut album, titled This Is Love, which is produced by Jellowstone Records label co-founder, DJ Harrison. The album is a strong debut that runs the gamut sonically in both production styles and vocally. The production spans from free-jazz to funk to hard rock style guitars, while Reed shows vocal range in the forms of spoken word, smooth R&B ballads, and powerful rock-esq anthems. With a recent co-sign from Questlove, DJ Harrison has turned heads seemingly overnight. Expect Sam Reed and fellow Jellowstone members to gain similar credibility very soon. If you’re not up to speed with either of these artists, now’s the time to get familiar. Stream and purchase the album on Bandcamp and iTunes.

  • Georgia Anne Muldrow – “A Thoughtiverse Unmarred” (Release) | @JahJahMuldrow

    The multi-talented Georgia Anne Muldrow has officially unleashed A Thoughtiverse Unmarred, her first rap album entirely produced by Chris Keys. The 12-track project has no features other than Declaime and MP Is Free, and is a great soundscape I highly suggest listening to. You can read a bit more and stream below, and after you dig that go ahead and head over to Bandcamp (or iTunes) to purchase the digital album.

    Past is prologue. The sins of the father are visited on sons and daughters. The madness of the world only abates when you stop the cycle—when you seek something beyond the mono-cultural and the corporeal.

    Georgia Anne Muldrow is a seeker and truth-teller. The words on her first rap album—produced entirely by Chris Keys—balance a beautiful delivery with brutal honesty. These are the honest confessions of a mother who refuses to turn a blind eye to immediate and ancestral misdeeds. Her rhymes are conscious, but more importantly, they speak to our deeper conscience.

    The prophetic soul artist offers a singular voice, yet belongs to a storied lineage. Listening to this record, you can hear the echoes of past oracles: Billie Holiday, Alice Coltrane, Erykah Badu, and Lauryn Hill. But the wisdom and narrative reflect Muldrow’s most personal revelations.

    From the album’s inception, we find her analyzing the patterns of her life in the constellations, rambling down dusty trails, pledging to jot down these crystalline thoughts in her mind as a north star for the misguided youth. She holds her head high, not in the vein of superiority, but as someone who “used to roam wild on a one-way street.”

    The evils of the world are given no quarter. She indicts corporate thugs and warmongers, the shamelessly materialistic and musicians who refuse to offer a modicum of substance. Her motivation isn’t to brow beat, but to challenge you to do better—it’s the type of record that can trigger resolutions on any day of the year. It’s a document of racial solidarity and pride, but one that offers an olive branch to anyone down for the cause.

    The beats are dusty and suffused with warmth so overwhelming it practically radiates Vitamin D. The gritty drums and hypnotic loops are minimal enough to let Muldrow’s mineral-rich voice fill in the gaps. There’s a timelessness in it’s questioning of age-old human problems, yet it tailors the inquiries towards the issues we currently grapple with on a diurnal basis.

    Muldrow uses music as a vessel to inspire hope and propel people towards a better future. Beyond identifying worldly inequities, this record details one woman’s quest to improve things for herself, her children, and everyone else. It’s about finding universal truths, while staying true to one’s essence—transcending the hate and slowly starting to heal.
