Asthmatic Kitty is pleased to offer the masses Grampall Jookabox‘s Rill Bruh EP which is now available on the Asthmatic Kitty website for free download.
Rill Bruh, released in collaboration with Joyful Noise Recordings, is the most convenient and cost-effective way to become familiar with the sound of ghetto-folkster, Grampall Jookabox. This free digital EP contains several remixes and out-takes from two or so years of musical development leading up to Grampall Jookabox’s second album Ropechain. In addition, Rill Bruh also contains one compelling selection from the said album, titled a “The Girl Ain’t Preggers.”
Possibly more than any other track on Grampall Jookabox’s Ropechain, “The Girl Ain’t Preggers” has the absolute sincerity and unselfconscious authenticity of an old time blues song, yet somehow regurgitated in a way that sounds more akin to the club music of the future. The elusive tribal, trashcan-banging musical accompaniment to the song’s story smacks of raw, primeval tang. Old time handclapping and hip-smacking drive the percussion over which the strings and vocals flow and flower in unpredictably pleasing harmonies.
