  1. Single Servings: The Bones of J.R. Jones – The Wildness

    2 Comments

    I randomly stumbled upon The Bones of J.R. Jones thanks to a tweet in my feed (thanks Annie!), and I was immediately drawn into J.R.’s ramshackle, rustic grooves. The Wildness EP consists of seven bluesy, sparse, floor-board stomping country-folk jams that are as timeless as they are impossible to resist. By and large, these tunes are completely stripped down and made all the more cozy and beautiful by their rootsy simplicity. Definitely recommended.


    Go buy this album from Bandcamp NOW.

    Listening to Phonte rap is like breathing in a deep breath of fresh air. He brings you something original, clever, honest and on point. Phonte tells it how it is, nothing over exaggerated. His word play is second to none and keeps you engaged in what he is saying. But if y’all had payed attention during his stint in Little Brother then y’all already knew this. Tigallo has quickly become a bright star in an already impressive galaxy of MCs that have graced my headphones over the years so check out this latest gem featuring Median.
