Step Into The Marina (#noschool)
EP Released: 21 Apr 2012
With over twenty records and countless tours to their name, Talibam! are rightly acclaimed as one of the most innovative and hard-working underground outfits around. The duo's genre-blurring creativity reaches a new peak on Step Into The Marina, the vanguard release in their "No School Rap" style. Here Matt Mottel's keys bounce joyously over Kevin Shea's beats, while lyrical blasts are delivered to corporate America and its ecological impact. It's a glorious thing to behold and on the B things get even more catchy, raucous and downright weird with Party Like A Star. Piano jams smack up against hi-hat abandon and tongue-in-cheek rapper excess before the whole tune dissolves into amp buzz. How can you not love this?
