Tour Review: Asher Roth

Tags: Asher Roth


Pennsylvania’s Asher Roth took over Brooklyn Bowl last night in NY. The celebration was in honor of the release of his album Pabst & Jazz, which you can download for free from his official site. This dude can really rap. Lyrically, well it isn’t about loving college anymore (although you cannot help but love that song).

Jazz artist, Jonathan Batiste opened the show with the Stay Human Band. He recently released a new CD/DVD “MY N.Y.”. They were one of the more unique openers I have ever seen. Batiste stated that  they performed and recorded the album in subway stations and on street corners throughout NYC. Besides performing original music, Batiste and Co covered Lady Gaga’s “Just Dance”, The Fugees’ “Ready or Not”, “Somewhere Over the Rainbow”, and Stevie Wonder’s “Isn’t She Lovely”.  I recommend checking them out. Very uplifting.

Hassani Kwess, who is featured on the title track “Pabst & Jazz”, got the crowd pumped and ready for Roth’s performance. Asher Roth, who just signed to Def Jam, certainly knows how to work a crowd. The album was released on Tuesday, but there were several fans up front singing the lyrics with Roth. Roth instructed the crowd when to light up their joints and asked people to crowd surf. I am sure the owners of Brooklyn Bowl were very happy about this. The crowd fed off Roth’s energetic performance and he definitely established new fans. Action Bronson joined Roth on stage for “Choices”. One of the highlights was the performance of “Dope Shit”, which had the packed crowed yelling “they want that dope shit!” Read more

Today we have our site owner, dscanland, take a look at his favorite albums of 2011.

Damn, I feel like I’m getting old. I had absolutely no desire to check out new music this year, let alone review. But old habits die hard and I still like to experiment with my music. Sadly, it’s on other peoples recommendation instead of just trying something new. I’m not dead yet! And truthfully, year end lists are one of my favourite times of the year to get caught up on good music. I’m still listening to some albums I found out about with last years lists. Here are some 2011 albums that you definitely should not miss out on. In no particular order.

Recs From Young Buffalo

One of my favorite releases this year was from a band I was only introduced to this year, Young Buffalo. The young Mississippi group signed to Fat Possum, toured opening for Arctic Monkeys, and released their phenomenal EP Young Von Prettylips. They were originally scheduled to play CMJ, but one of their members left the band due to his wife having a baby. More recently they gained 2 new members for their live set-up, and released a new song, called “Baby Demons” (see this link). By the way, in case you didn’t know, member Jim Barrett is the brother of John Barrett, the frontman of another Mississippi/Fat Possum band, Bass Drum Of Death.

Here is a list of what they are currently listening to, and have been during 2011. There are also some of their all time favorites listed here as well: Read more

Artist Update: Mac Miller

Even though I’m a huge fan of Mac Miller, I don’t think anyone, even Mac himself, could ever have predicted how great of a year he has had. He’s been gaining attention everywhere lately it seems, after Blue Slide Park was the #1 record, moving over 150,000 copies in its first week. The most recent place he has received attention is at Forbes. They pose the question: is he indie music’s Savior?

As a featured person on the 2012 Forbes 30 Under 30 list, the legendary institution sat down with Malcolm for a brief interview. Watch as the 19-year-old rapper reveals the secrets behind his rapid rise, the inspiration for his music videos, and why he doesn’t want to sign with a major record label any time soon.  You can read the article here.
