PR: Curating a Sound Museum With Parallel Thought


From Adam C:

Curating a Sound Museum With Parallel Thought

Fresh off their latest album Attractive Sin with Del the Funky Homosapien, Parallel Thought  releases their first true solo effort, Art of Sound.  This full-length project is produced by all three members Drum, Knowledge, and Caness, who doubles as the groups main emcee. Art of Sound is a sound museum curating lush landscapes that not only stays true to, but also builds upon the integrity of Parallel Thoughts earlier works, featuring “classic sounds with rich layers of funk, soul, jazz, blues and rock sampling that honor the genre-bending experimentation prevalent in '80s and early-'90s hip-hop."

Mr. Genre - "(HWD)/Happiest Day of My Life"

Happiest Day of My Life/ HWD. We're looking to
get this to as many people as possible.  Put on for your city if you feel it, than play
it in as many places, as many times, as you feel the need.  It's positive and safe to do so, so you can play it anywhere.
In front of the kids, church, at work, on twitter, facebook, the youtube link, email blast, etc. Celebrate simply being alive. Because, it was a rough day around the world in the news yesterday.

Video: Timothy Rhyme x Phil the Pain - "Grown Man"


From Arab @ First Dirt:

Video: Timothy Rhyme x Phil the Pain - "Grown Man"

"In my long search for non traditional rappers, came an angel of sound. With a smooth voice and proactive, positive message, Timothy Rhyme gives us hope that rappers haven't lost the roots of Old Skool sound and morals while 'spitting' lyrics of today's personal issues and concerns. In Grown Man, the single release from Vintage to be released July 3, a story of a young man with an old soul evokes the power of rap. His rap tells us we need to stop hitting the snooze and do something that we can be proud of. I'm grateful for Tim's talent and ability to tell us that we need stop crying about our problems and make better decisions." - Tomera Wineland (UK)
