Air 2 A Bird: Crow Hill
Buy! - (Self-released)
Air 2 A Bird is the positive result of a negative situation. South Seattle lyricist Gabriel Teodros was due overseas for a European tour when his journey came to an abrupt halt upon being denied entrance to London's Heathrow Airport. Stuck in NYC for two weeks, he set-up shop in a friend's studio along with Seattle producer Amos Miller (who produced Teodros' solo debut Lovework) with only GarageBand, a microphone, and live recordings of actual birds at their disposal. The end product was later fleshed out at home with some help from friends, and it's an impressive, refreshing set of jazzy, soulful hip-hop with Miller's warm production and Teodros' smooth flow and conscious lyrics (as well as plenty of chirping birds) peacefully sharing the spotlight. 8/12/2010 - Alex
