About: CROWS: REMIXES, REBOOTS AND ALTERNATIVE VERSIONS (LP)
In March of 2014, three-piece hip-hop/blues/folk-constellation Crows: released their debut album called “Remixes, Reboots and Alternative Versions”. “Remixes…” started out as just what it sounds like; a remix album. Using a microphone, a loop-pedal and one 15-watt amplifier Mumbles put together rough remixes of tracks lifted off his friend, Winnipeg prairie-rapper Abstract Artform’s album “As the Crow Flies”. Enter Co-pilot; with who’s sincerely dope and playful cuts, amongst other additions to the mixes, the sound of the album broadened.
The track list contains both alternative versions of previously released songs by Abstract Artform, and original – previously unreleased songs made by Crows: as a three-piece.
“This album sounds like what would happen if a bunch of Canadian rappers and beat maestros emigrated to the Smoky Mountains of Tennessee, sitting out on the porch with their equipment, jars of moonshine tucked neatly between rocking chairs.” –Rapreviews.com
