ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Liquid Courage is a collaboration between Wax (rapper/singer/songwriter) and EOM (producer/beatmaker/songwriter). The album consists of 17 songs that were written in 2008 by the group. The sound of the album could be described as experimental hip hop, although there is definitely an element of pop sensibility throughout. Lyrically the album touches on a wide variety of topics such as sex, God, alcoholism, whack rappers, love, music, partying, and much more. There is alot of melody and alot of soul on this album.

Pick up a copy today for you or for a friend, family member, loved one, or even for your worst enemy. Wax and EOM appreciate your support!!




It might be good to mention here how Wax and EOM "met". Basically, EOM was sitting around surfing the internet one night and he happened to stumble upon a video of some dude rapping in his car. EOM thought the dude sounded pretty good and he noticed that there was also a large amount of views on the video. This is the video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_7TPcGksW5M


He sent the "driving rapper" dude a beat and MC Safety Belt sent him back a message saying the beat was hot....but he wanted to make an album using his own beats (Wax also makes beats....usually more on the "cheese funk synth" tip as compared to EOM's "soulful cool sample" style). Anyway, EOM wasn't discouraged. After crying for several hours and contemplating suicide due to Wax's rejection...he got a second wind! He spent some time constructing a beat he thought Wax would sound nice on top of and sent that beat to him. Wax listened to it and thought it was beautiful. Wax immediately started humming a melody for the chorus then wrote a song over it: an odd story of an older recently-divorced guy falling in love with a younger stripper. Both Wax and EOM thought the story went really well with the music. ((That song, "The Adventures of Larry and Tina", ended up being the first single off the album.)) EOM suggested that maybe they do some other stuff together and Wax agreed without hesitiation, thinking that EOM would send him another beat and maybe they would record another song. EOM then proceeded to send Wax approximately 35 beats. A little overwhelmed at first, Wax started listening to these beats one by one. By the time he was finished he realized that he couldn't just pick one so he sent EOM a myspace message asking him if he was down to do an album together. EOM agreed and they started working on the album. They assumed they would do 8 songs or so and they would finish pretty quickly.

At this point these two dudes had never communicated with each other using anything other than myspace messages. Wax found that interesting so he suggested the tentative album title "For all I know, he's an Asshole"....a play on the fact that they had never even talked on the phone before. They agreed on the title and got to work. One of the first songs Wax ended up writing and recording was "Sunday in the City" which you can listen to on this page. From there Wax just kept writing and writing and EOM kept sending Wax more and more beats. By the time the album was done there were 17 tracks. At that point it seemed dumb to use the aforementioned title since the album represented more than just the fact that Wax and EOM had never met. EOM suggested the title "Liquid Courage" based on a quote he liked from the movie Dark Knight. Wax was amazed at how well that title fit in with the subject matter of the album and they agreed on that title.

Some people say that the great thing about EOM's production style is his sense of "musicality". This makes it so alot of the songs on the album Liquid Courage could easily be translated into performances by acoustic musicians, rock bands, or even orchestras. This works well since Wax often performs as a solo acoustic act. Wax and EOM hope that this album takes them to the point where they can start doing some live shows...possibly with a band. It's difficult with them residing on opposite sides of the country, but who knows what can happen....THIS IS AMERICA GOD DAMNIT!!!

Classic Album
I listened to this whole album from track 1 to track 17, it was worth all 65 minutes. Real talk. My favs was "The Adventures of Larry & Tina, Solidify, Music & Liquor, and Air Timpani".. All of the songs was on point...Those was jus my fav. The lyrics was dope & the beats was classic. 5 stars!

No line is wasted and no punches are pulled and thank God because this is exactly what the rap genre needs: a savior. Wax and EOM are it. Respect!

Evan Coughlin


This cd is one of the best hip hop cds Ive bought in a while. The beats are disgusting and wax flips it on every track. Music and Liquor is my favorite on the cd. Also Air Timpani is bangin...the beat and the flows are crazy. Buy this cd if you want a complete cd that is put together perfectly.

Marcelo Escudero

This album is already a classic! Wax's lyrics are always krazy and these EOM beats are insane! Definitely better than anticipated.
