MEMPHIS REIGNS (Free album!), WOODHANDS (Free cover!), and TOUBAB KREWE (Free remix!)

In this three-for-one post, I’m going first to the new album by Memphis Reigns & D-Mitch, a complimentary digital release that showcases how good myspace rappers can often (but rarely) be. It’s called “Skeleton crew Diaries,” and it features some hard, skillful rhymes mixed with several instrumentals. The band shows lots of promise, and is absolutely worth your time. The terrific thing about the Internet is we can find artists like this, who used to have to struggle even to get heard locally. Here’s one of the best tracks:

Next, it’s electro band “Woodhands” cover of Eddy Grant’s “Electric Avenue.” some of you may think of Eddy as a terrific reggae artist, and he was, but he also dabbled in pop. remember the theme to “Romancing The Stone?” (“I’m romancing the stone/Never leaving your poor heart alone/Every night and every day/Gonna love the hurting away.” Bloody awful!)

Finally, it’s Toubab Krewe’s remix of Youssou N’Dour’s “Wake Up,” a charity cut for the IntraHealth open Initiative, to which you can make a donation here.
