MP3 of the Day: Jean Grae

Posted By on Fri, Aug 22, 2008 at 8:52 AM


My colleague at the Village Voice, Rob Harvilla, recently wrote that the new Jean Grae album, Jeanius, is a "a mesmerizing ghost-town of classic funk/soul echoes." He also wrote that Grae, fed up with the music industry, has threatened to quit the biz, via her MySpace page.

Your can read Rob's longer description of the life of Jean Grae (and a Q&A with the New York songstress here) and see for yourself whether this talented woman, who worked with 9th Wonder on this new release, is on her way out. Jenius is indeed a sexy, soulful album -- check out the lusty ode "Love Thirst," where Grea raps "you ain't even done first, baby, when I done burst, crazy" and decide for yourself whether this is a woman who needs to, ahem, be on top. -- Jennifer Maerz

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
