CD REVIEW: Warsawpack
Gross Domestic Product
G7 Welcoming Comittee
Rundown: Most people have probably not heard of Hamilton natives Warsawpack yet, but this band will delight those who are interested in amazing, non-mainstream hip-hop music. If that's not enough, the music itself is complimented by insightful and extremely politically motivated lyrics.
tracks: The opening track, "Year of the Car Crash," sets the entire mood of the album, mixing funky horns with melodic drums and bass to create an angry atmosphere. Other superb tracks include "Attention to Deficit," which addresses addiction, and "Survive," which teems with defiance.
like: Warsawpack sounds different and refreshing. They create mysterious music, aided by a singer who raps, yells and sings his heart out. In addition, all the music is created by real musicians playing actual instruments a refreshing change from the often loathed drum machine. Basically, you've gotta hear it to understand it.
