I can't listen to this music too loud because I am sitting at a gate at the airport waiting for a flight to come in. I don't have my headphones on me, so I'm playing it out loud amongst a bunch of people. It's pretty coarse, ruthless sounding stuff, and I don't think people around me would like if I were blasting it. Although I'm pretty sure the people that are having a stressful layover have this music playing in their heads right now as they curse the airline for all their problems. Also, I didn't notice that guys mouth on the album cover when I first looked at it; it made me shit bricks when I saw it. I just added another person that will probably be contributing stuff soon. He is from Halifax, Canada (at least that's what I think he means by Hali, east coast of Canada). I've always wanted to visit Nova Scotia; the closest I've been is Montreal and I loved it there. He gave me a nice rundown of his living situation and all the cool stuff he likes to do, which I really appreciated because I like to know the people I collaborate with. He says he likes funk, old punk, dub, reggae, but mostly hardcore and screams. So, maybe he will dig this too.
