The Daily Krapht- Mr.Lif & Brass Menazeri- “Rebirth”
In 2010, a meeting between underground hip-hop legend Mr.Lif and the San Fran area Balkan Brass band, Brass Menazeri resulted in a seven year collaboration and friendship. The final result? An album called Resilient which is the text book definition of a labor of love. A lot of blood, sweat, tears and years went into the making of this album, and taking a sneak peak of one single is enough to tell us it was well worth all of it.
“Rebirth” is the second single released off of the yet-to-be-released album. The track is enlightening, and will make you move. Between the positive and poetic lyricism ( “I’m sending only positive vibes when I spot y’all the simple things in life my humble aspirations man, you healthy & safe? Damn congratulations!”), jazz horns and percussion you will be powerless against the music. Give in, play it loud and often.
Resilient will be available November 3rd through Waxsimilie Productions. You can still pre-order through their bandcamp page, links to connect will be at the bottom of the page.
