Peanut Butter Wolf, founder and honcho over at Stones Throw, with an mp3 from a band that he was excited about.
It was the perfect song that I needed to hear at that moment.
It was the ultimate break up song complete with a haunting organ, wah wah guitar and strings with the opening line:
“Now that’s it over, I can finally see that all things must change and remain, like I know you do”.
I was sold!
I sat there in my pajamas, yet to start my day, stuck in bed, with this song on repeat.
Good stuff from this duo — a nice twist of Al B Sure meets Cody ChesnuTT meets Sly Stone meets Sunset Blvd on a Sunday Morning.
I’ve played it several times on my show and gotten lots of feedback and requests for it the following Monday.
I wanted to know more about this band and Wolf tells me they are two young men from Baltimore — vocalist Sasha Desree and producer Michael Collins — who worked their way West to be close to the label.
Catch Silk Rhodes in LA performing with Wolf at their L.A. debut THIS Thursday, August 14th at Complex LA.
