I woke up to the sound of rain outside my bedroom window this morning (a rare Southern CA occurrence for the month of May). Per my usual routine, I reached for my phone and responded to the Words with Friends notifications I received overnight [username: ReVision]. After some triple word scores, I proceeded to check my email…and there it was, one of the best subject lines I’ve ever seen, “CINEMETROPOLIS HAS ARRIVED (for you)”
It’s hard to believe 4 years have passed since Blue Scholars released a full length album, but luckily they’ve blessed our ears with an EP and other free downloads during this time. Thanks to their ingenious Kickstarter campaign, I’m now able to listen to the album a month before its official release date in June!
Although some of you might’ve slept on this and might be kicking yourselves in the ass right now, make sure to wake from your slumber soon. The Cinemetropolis album is a testament to Blue Scholars’ continually evolving sound. With every project, they push the envelope (thanks in large part to Sabzi’s production) and hit us with something new. They’re one of the few groups, along with Zion I and Outkast, who I never know what to expect…and that’s a great thing.
