Published Jan 18, 2010While you're getting settled back into the workweek, make sure to delve into the latest tracks featured in Exclaim!'s Click Hear section. Here's a little synopsis on what we have for you this week.
First up, there is producer/MC D-Sisive's new single, "Anvil," inspired by the Toronto metal outfit of the same name. His motivation for the track was stimulated by the documentary on the band, Anvil! The Story of Anvil, as well as some serious love for Ryan Gosling's Dead Man's Bones. We then have Jay Electronica, who will captivate rap fiends with his latest number, "Exhibit C." The long-awaited track is infused with a vibrant progression of thrashes, ivories and professing lyrics.
Montreal natives Thee Silver Mt. Zion Memorial Orchestra let loose a new song prior to their February 16 release of Kollaps Tradixionales, with "Bury 3 Dynamos" giving a glimpse into their new album through what we call an "unsteadily mesmerizing piece that builds with dynamic authority." Meanwhile, Sierra Leone's Refugee All Stars's musical declaration, "Living Stone," from their upcoming Rise & Shine album, features a powerful reggae sound with a dash of folk essence.
Also featured this week are indie rockers Surfer Blood, who waved out their garage hit "Swim (To Reach the End)." It's the first single from their self-released debut album, Astro Coast, which hits stores tomorrow (January 19).
