If you buy this CD you will not be disappointed, even if you don't think you like Hip-Hop!
Eightrack Mind is a live band with drums, bass, keys, guitar, sax, turntables and emcees. Their diversity has allowed them to share the stage with the Wailers, Wu-Tang, Gift of Gab, Soulive, Michael Franti, Tone-Loc, Digital Underground, Zion I, Crown City Rockers, Hieroglyphics and many others. They’re forging a unique sound that sets them apart from the influx of commercial hip-hop. Their mix of hip-hop, jazz, rock & soul means there's a little something for everyone in the music. “You don’t even need to like hip-hop to love them,” quoted Cactus Records owner, Mike Good.
This is their second release. It features a new lineup that expands the sonic pallet from the first album. With the new members Eightrack Mind bring a musical richness that can't be found on most hip-hop albums. Also featured are Josh Martinez and Brian Koenig lending their rhyming skills on two tracks.
