459-

31 Jan

Here’s a song that I haven’t heard in a long time but now that live in New Jersey, I have found myself thinking about. The band is E-Town Concrete. The E is Elizabeth, NJ which is a train station stop I pass daily. E-Town Concrete was a rap/rock group and the song I’m choosing is one that I haven’t heard in a long time called Mandibles. The song appeared on their album “The Renaissance”, an album which surprised me in just how far the band could take their sound. But this song isn’t an innovative sound. I love the song because of how raw it is. Crazy lines like “Dipsy Doodles with a food stamp to get 75 cents back” speak to anyone who has been poor in NY/NJ and that’s why I like it.
