After much fanfare and many a free download, The Pseudo Intellectuals newest record, Dope Grindwork, hits stores today. Digital downloads are available through iTunes, Amazon, and Bandcamp. The physical CD and artwork (100% Eco-packaging) can be purchased at Amazon and - for a lmited time - directly from DTR.

Dope Grindwork features an amazing sound-scape provided by DJ Cutler and Tone Atlas, juxtaposed against a multitude of talent - from Jazzmatazz trumpeter Brownman, to emcee extraordinaire A.L. Third, to the unmatched vocal stylings of The Fresh Sisters - so be sure to head on over and support independent artists who think locally yet act globally. In the words of Irv Funkenstein, "The Pseudo Intellectuals are the epitome of fine music, made from records and beer." So be sure to check them out.

Thank you for your continued support,
Tony Caferro, DTR45

Launch Party this Friday 11-11-11. $11 before 11

On Friday, November 11th, the Pseudo Intellectuals, DTR45, LoDo Industries, and The Good Neighborhood will gather nearly all of the players from the album and a few special guests to release the album on the sly, at a downtown Buffalo location to be revealed before the event but remain beneath the radar. Emceed by Shane “BBoy Depree” Fry and Seamus Gallivan, the 11/11/11 throwdown will charge $11 admission before 11pm, which includes a choice of either a Dope Grindwork CD, commemorative Pseudo pint glass, or Pseudo coffee mug.

This just in from LoDo chairman Irv Funkenstein: “The compositions on this album are, for the most part, functional rather than developmental. Tone’s usual polyrhythmic beatsounds and Cutler’s stylish scratchthings are further propelled and fortified by the desirable guitar work of young VJ Brown, the vital new link in the six-stringed lifeline from Charlie Christian to Barney Kessel to Kenny Burrell and Grant Green.”

MP3: Has-Lo - "Face In Disguise" (prod. Exile)

MP3: Has-Lo - "Face In Disguise" (prod. Exile)

Courtesy Mello Music Group.

Critically acclaimed new artist Has-Lo is back with a re-envisioning of his debut In Case I Don't Make It. The noteworthy project comes out officially on November 15th, but iTunes has teamed up with MMG for an exclusive early release of the star-studded Conversation B. To encourage everyone to support the album, we're giving away a free download of Has-Lo "Face In Diguise" produced by none other than Exile.

"Face In Disguise" is Build Jewelz reconstituted by Has-Lo and Exile. The producer has crafted music for Mobb Deep, Akon and Snoop Dogg, not to mention his classic long player with Blu: Below The Heavens. Exile lends this track an intense musical backdrop full strings and monastic chanting that brings out a religious tone that matches Has-Lo's lyrical prose. Hope and faith are pitted against an unyielding external reality that Has-Lo depicts with the wordplay of a virtuoso.

"My grandmother says "you need to put your faith into Christ"
And yet, waning in faith, I hate her advice
An atheist right? To pray in the sky, a face in disguise
Well beyond saying I'm blessed to say I'm alive
Awaiting a sign from god, meanwhile failing to rise
And what's the point really? I spend the week
Plotting a scheme to get filthy, or let the stress kill me
If I'm cutting you off the love that I had was built cheap
You holding a grudge? Feel free"

About The Album:

Has-Lo, the Philadelphia based emcee/producer who brought you the critically acclaimed album In Case I Don't Make It, is back! Conversation B is a complete re-envisioning of ICIDMI. Exile, J-Zone, Oddisee, Kev Brown, Eric Lau, Apollo Brown and more lend their extensive production powers to the project. It is eclectic, melodic, chaotic, bleak and brutal all at once. The journey of a man at the tipping point continues...
