Album Notes
"...slinky dance beats, Beach Boys-like group-vocal harmonies, and touches of many styles..."

tight friends since pre-k, thing-one has had birthday parties at playground McDonalds... watched Ghostbusters on VHS and cried when they killed the marshmallow man... sang along to "You're the Best Around"... thought they were Goonies(Joey still thinks he is)... cheered when they finally beat the second Bald Bull... played recorder in 4th grade... and then formed a tight band.

more recently, thing-one has brought sold out crowds to NYC's knitting factory, mercury lounge, and pianos... they've had a blast opening for MATISYAHU at Syracuse University... gotten into deep conversations about legos while traveling up and down the eastern seaboard, stopping only for gas, nacho doritos, or the love doctor's bladder problem... and pushed themselves to the limits of sanity driving to Penn State and back every Thursday last semester.

but they just keep going, and do this for no one but you my friend. come see, come hear what post collegiate children are yapping about over London Calling and RC PRO AM.

"supreme trip-hop with elements of jazz and funk that seem to hearken to Miles Davis as much as De La Soul or the Wu Tang Clan... they are exciting."

Miles From the Road
These rappers really got skills ;we like the beat.


Solid beats with a heathly helping of hip hop
This CD is solid from start to finish. Takes some risks but pays off with the smart production and musicianship. The contrast between the male-female vocals is very effective as it pushes the songs from track to track.

This is a good recording with a lot of promise.

Si Aura aka Killah

Thing One Is Unique at every point
I like that track Walk Away. The smooth jazzy feel to it is unique and the singer on the chorus does it nice. Overall heat 5/5* . Visit me at . Peace...Si Aura aka "Killah" .


All tracks are great, like the chili-pepper esque track, guitar solo on #6, percussion on # 8 (i think) cowbelll! and #10 is my favorite of all.

Laura Hartin aka LaLa

It's hard to believe that this is their first CD. The quality of the CD and the music on every track is flawless and funky-fresh. I've had it playing on REPEAT in my car since I got it. I'm addicted to both of their CDs and if there's a cure for this, I don't want it...I don't want it! BUY THIS CD...You won't be sorry!

Eminem meets Mingus and it works.
It's Eminem meets Mingus and it works. This CD is the most musical hip hop I've ever heard. Like my bro Rufus always says, "white guys can't compete when it comes to bling bling --so they gotta go strong with the sing sing." Cool harmony ...very original.

Martinez the Gallic Phez

Truly Refreshing
Good blend of styles and instrumentation. Very strong selection of songs.


viva la jersey
These guys are mad talented, with vibes that are reminiscent of a few from the past (Tribe, UDS) but with very original and authentic lyrics. The whole album is easy to listen to without sounding weak.
