Bottom Brick's "The Groundbreaking"
I get lots of emails with asking me to review music. Actually, it's a bit flattering as well as overwhelming. There's no rhyme or reason as to why I open one email and not another. That was the case when I received an email last week about Bottom Brick.

This is a bit of a mellowed out project and I should add that it's not a new project. The fact that it's not new is not a big deal because it's new to me and it sounds good. Add to that that they are home boys - from the buckeye state! Love that.
It's a 16 track package and it did grab my attention from the beginning with "The Stick Up". "The Stick Up's" got a bit of a throwback feel to it. Definitely not like the empty music of today's radio hits. But that's the intentional flow of indy hip hop, right?
I like that I can listen to most of this project w/o skipping tracks. "Science" and "Sixth Sense" are two songs that stood out for me. "Science" had some beats that were ear catching and a tight flow among the three members. "Sixth Sense" has that middle of the road pace w/a little edginess and a sense of urgency in the delivery.
Hip hoppers, show some support for the indy's out here. Give a little, get a little. kfox.
