Void Pedal "Void Pedal" EP

Expanding the Backpack, 9/15/10

A new free self-titled EP from the Chicago instrumental hip hop group Void Pedal. I hadn't heard of these guys, but they're being distributed by Fieldwerk Recordings, who have previously put out instrumental LPs from PNS (Molemen), Zavala (Dark Time Sunshine), Meaty Ogre (Qwel/Galapagos4), Grayskul, and others. Fieldwerk have already built somewhat of a small reputation for quality instrumental hip hop music, and this Void Pedal EP further strengthens that reputation, because it's clearly high-quality stuff. Void Pedal has a dark and dreamy atmosphere to their music that wouldn't feel out of place next to some of Dark Time Sunshine's stuff, so I guess it comes as no surprise that they're currently opening for Dark Time Sunshine on their Make a Darwish Tour. You can download the free EP Here. I'm seeing them tomorrow night with DTS, so live show verdict to come! Here are the rest of the tour dates:
