Open Mike Eagle "Art Rap After Party EP"

Expanding the Backpack, 2/3/11

Need to pull out my extra, extra late pass for blogging about this one, but when this EP was offered as a free download last year, it was advertised as a limited-time-only freebie. I always figured it would drop in some purchasable format and that I'd write about it then, but seeing how the link for it is still in tact and how there is no sign of any other sort of release of it on the near horizon, I figured this early month of 2011 would be as good a time as any to share it. Open Mike Eagle is a cool MC from the new school Project Blowed group Swim Team, and this short look into his music is a good introduction to his interesting approach and style. The EP has a lot of quality jammed into its 20 minute running time, and features the stand-out track "Haircut," which is probably the funnest Open Mike Eagle song to see live. Tracklisting below. No idea about the production credits, if anyone has them handy hit me up!

1. Everbody's Birthday
2. Haircut
3. Someplace Quiet
4. Four Years Old
5. Last Night

Download available via the Mush Records website.
