Good Children get a Triple Dosage of Medicine

And to all of our valued readers, you've been hella dope. So I will hit you with three, count them three, new artist to check into. Brace yourself, this is gonna be a long one; which is ironically what I told her.

First up, what know ye of Menahan Street Band? Know ye little, yet ye know much.

Sound familiar? Well, it should. That little ditty was the primary sample for Jay-Z's Roc Boys. Infectious beauty if I must say so myself. Well, the collective eclectics hail from New York, Brooklyn to be exact; and mix a interesting blend of Funk, Soul, Jazz, Afro-Beat, and Hip-Hop to name a few in an effort to visually paint their aural sensations on the canvas of your mind. Furthermore the group is a amalgamation of several other bands; Sharon Jones & the Dap-Kings and The Budos Band to name a couple of them. The band was brought into inception to shine a light on the talent that the various young musicians themselves actually have. Dopetastic. Want more from them, you know I holds it down. Peep the official.

Moving along, What do you know of Luv Bugz?

You clicked the image didn't you? Don't feel bad, we're laughing with you...promise. Well, these two hail from Houston, Texas and they describe their sound as a mix between New Wave and R&B. You can clearly hear the influence from such artist as Prince in their songs, if nothing else however, they definitely offer some dope lounge around music. Want to hear from them, click here.

Ha aha, ok, we're done fucking with you. This link is for real, click here to peep the official. Promise, for real this time.

Finally, Rodrigo y Gabriela? Ring a bell, no? Well, you know what it is.

The two guitarist actually met while playing in a Thrash Metal band, but decided to give it up in an effort to move to Ireland and to do simply acoustic shows as traveling musicians. They haven't looked back sense. They've received an ENORMOUS amount of reception for their talented picking and strumming and because of such have headlined numerous festivals and sold out the an equal amount of shows of their own. Their album, entitled Rodrigo y Gabriela, not only features their own pieces but covers of such great rock songs as Orion by Aerosmith and the legendary Stairway to Heaven from Led Zeppelin. Insane. Added reinforcements, you got them.

Werd! Peep the official.

That is all for now kiddies,
