The nice thing about having a blog is that I get exposed to music that I may have not come across in other ways. Sometimes what I hear is subpar, and sometimes it’s really not bad. Other times it’s quite good.
That being said, I have absolutely no idea who Nacido Negro is but he sent me some music today and really not bad. It’s actually quite good. He sent two tracks and I believe they are from his upcomming album entitled Born Black. Nacido, if you come across this, put a little bio in your emails…that goes for all artists. I don’t need to know why you are so hot or what’s missing from the game (those statements are so cliche…the horse is dead, so let’s stop beating it), but I would like to know a little about you and why you are doing music, and the background of the tracks themselves. It helps me to pass on information about you, which is what you want…at least I think so.
The two tracks, “Hero’s Inn (King Heroin)” and “Neo Shackles” featuring Cally, are heavy songs with the first being about the plight of a person with an addictive personality and how drugs can tear them down, and the second speaking on how skin color…no matter how modern society is today…still affects perception.
I’m not a sound geek so I don’t care about mixing as much as I care about the quality of the lyrics, style, etc., and both songs are full of words that I found myself wanting to listen to and understand.
If I were you, I’d take 10 minutes out to listen to the two tracks and see what you think. With a little better sound quality, these tracks are ready to be pressed up.
