LISTEN: Rudy and the Rhetoric - Lucid + Blade Runner ft. Grayskul
DOWNLOAD Rudy and the Rhetoric - Lucid (MP3)
Seattle's Rudy and the Rhetoric has a sound that they themself describe as 'Angels on PCP'. I'd add an indie feel a la Rhymesayers and a mellower Def Jux with a bass line type vocal flow. 'Blade Runner' features Rhymesayers rhyme fiend Grayskul and wouldn't have been a bad addition to the more apocalyptic El-P records. 'Lucid' has a melancholic beat with an unexpected bleepie synth melody backing the slow groove. Recommended.
