Album Notes
Sonicbloom presents their second completely self-produced, full-length
album Paradigm Lift, on CFO Recordings. Based out of the San Francisco Bay
Area, Sonicbloom is a core group of 5 artists playing the roles of
MC/songwriters/singers, beat-makers, musicians, and engineers. Full of 18
diverse tracks, the project is an intentional, heart-opening, inter-dimensional
soundwave seduction. An upfront and tasteful representation of hip-hop
music that will capture listeners not only with the dynamic range and high
caliber of the beats, but also with the lyrical content and unique styles the
vocalists offer.

Paradigm Lift is a musical masquerade through the fabric of daily life as
we know it. From club friendly tracks such as “Firewalk”, to socially and
politically-riveting ballads such as “Eye of the Hurricane” and “Revolution
Sound” to playful and abstract song topics like “Extra Extra” and “ IMBY,”
Paradigm Lift is a well-rounded sound-scape crafted to appeal to lovers of
lyricism and music alike. No song goes without a touch of meticulous
instrumentation and beat production, which strongly supports the soulful
harmonic vocal melodies and the unique yet complimentary styles of three
seasoned emcees.

Sonicbloom is the full package, and their second effort builds strongly
upon the foundation they laid with From the Get-Go in 2005. Guaranteed to
make you bob your head, move your body, open your mind, and touch that
certain place in your soul, Paradigm Lift is bound to be one of the strongest hip-hop albums of 2008.

Paradigm Lift ˈper-ә-ˌdīmˈlift v. adj. n.
an all encompassing state of spiritual enlightenment, political awareness,
social consciousness, and environmental bliss.

Brad at CD Baby

The Bay Area has always been a hub for a diverse gathering of hip hop faithfuls, and while the scene is too often renowned for its party raps that are proud to be lacking in substance, there\'s never a shortage of artists that represent the flip side of that coin. This group of MCs from The Bay aren\'t interested in dumbing down their sound for anybody, but that doesn\'t mean they don\'t want you to have some fun. When the first (post-intro) track \"Firewalk\" thumps in with a dense and Moog-y bass rumbling and the invitation to \"Move Yourself,\" it\'s ostensibly as club-ready as you can get. But as the vibe moves forward, both through this song and the 16 that follow, it\'s easy to see that these cats aren\'t consumed with simply throwing their hands up. \"Eye of the Hurricane\" gets serious, contemplating and trying to contain frustrations that bubble up from simply trying to take it day by day: \"How long can we keep on living this way?/ What can I do as one man to make a change?\" The beats keep it intelligent and thought provoking as well, adding just as much diversity as the messages that they\'re the backbone for. Whether you\'re feeling up, down, pensive or carefree, this is a record that should help you ease into a perspective that makes you feel right.

Hey Sonicbloom... I just found your album up here on CD Baby, and I have to say that it is a great album that has so much to offer a listener. Get this CD while you can, and go see this band if they are in your area. Very positive lyrics and hittin' beats make this album a must have for anyone who is into underground hip hop... Revolution Sound!
