Expanding the Backpack, 11/8/10
New free EP from Jordan Miche, one of the core members of Ecid's Minneapolis hip hop crew Fill in the Breaks. This is pretty much my introduction to Jordan's music, and I must say that tracks like "@!^* You" and "The New Era" highlight some very clever lyricism and stylistic prowess that offer a fairly original approach to the genre. Ecid handles the production side of things, and brings an avantgarde jazz atmosphere to the project that compliments Miche's stylings nicely. This download is offered in promotion of the Ecid/Noah23/Jordan Miche "Attack of the Vampire Mermaid Tour," which is currently making its way across the US and which will get a San Francisco show review here shortly. A physical version of this freebie with a bonus Ecid & Jordan Miche EP "Dead Trumpet Demos" is also available for sale on the tour. Download the EP HERE and check out the show dates listed below.
