Rusty Redenbacher, Mudkid numero dos, gave me a sneak peak at the new project available on iTunes 8/25. As a follower of the Kids for years, I can say this 6 song collection can stand right along with heavyweights like Higher (2001) or Basementality (2006).
1 ‘Ride‘ sets the tone, and the pace for the eargasms about to ensue, courtesy of a face-scruncher from Tyler Knapp.
2 ‘How Many’ chews up & swallows the pride we all hold so… proudly.
3 ‘Abraham’ showcases Rusty’s storytelling chops, through a wide-shouldered friend.
4 ‘Shades’ gives Russ his closeup, he’s not hard to find.
5 ‘The Plan’ is a blueprint for doing things your own way (a Mudkid tenet), declaring war, “you farging bastages.”
6 ‘Nitty Gritty’ is just that, a raw track with lyrical exercises from 3 wordsmiths.
