 Music Review: The Lion Of Judah Hath Prevailed; The Process Meet Ghetto Priest

"The Lion Of Judah Hath Prevailed; The Process Meets Ghetto Priest" is a seven-track EP from the Saginaw, Mi based roots-reggae rockers, five of which are alternate mixes of the title track by London reggae artists and producers Congo Natty and Adrian Sherwood, and American artists and producers Skip "Little Axe" McDonald and David Harrow. The seventh "bonus" track is "Ghetto Life", a sneak-peek release from Ghetto Priests forthcoming record, "Sacred Ground" (On-U Sound Records 2011). Both songs are worthy additions to any reggae collection. Your DJ will know what to do with the rest.

The Process will be appearing for their second release party Saturday, May 7th @ The Elbow Room in Ypsilanti. The show starts @ 9:00pm.

 DVD Review: The Process Live @ The Vassar Theater

The Process: Live @ The Vassar TheatreOne of the best things about The Process Live: The Vassar Theatre, I think, is the fact that I didn't have to drive all the way to Vassar, MI to see it. That's right. Thanks to the wisdom of The Process and the fine production work of Big Bang Films the entire show was captured and released on DVD for you -  and lazy local music dorks like me who rarely leave the cave anymore.  But why spend the gas money when I can watch it from my couch?

 Music Review: The Polka Floyd Show
Imagine square dancing at cirque de soleil or smoking a hookah while wearing lederhosen and you might begin to approach the bizarre synthesis that is The Polka Floyd Show, a band who channels Pink Floyd through the medium of Polka music.  Their self-titled debut gives a unique spin on seven classic Pink Floyd tracks from six different albums that span three decades. 

Polka Floyd's debut CD Release Party will take place this Saturday (February 9th) at The New Dodge in Hamtramck (where else, right?).  So load up on the Paczkis and beer because it's going to be a crazy night.

 Music Review: Weapons Of Mass Percussion by The Process

The anticipation of hearing new music from The Process came loaded with expectations based entirely on 2002's "Blood & Bones", a great collection of reggae gems that I put among the best local records I've heard in the past ten years. So I couldn't help but hope for a repeat performance on their 2006 follow-up, "Weapons of Mass Percussion".  And a repeat performance is pretty much exactly what I got - just not in the way I expected.  -Mitch

 Music Review: Trashed In Detroit by Mutha
Every once in a while we pluck a review from our submissions and put it up here on the front page. We don't get nearly enough reviews of rap and hip hop around here (you'd think we only listen to rock) so I thought it'd be a good opportunity to feature one. So let me introduce Isabelle Esling, a blogger from France (see correction below) who submitted a review of "Trashed in Detroit" by Mutha. Click "read more" below for the review.

Note: Correction: Isabelle Esling is from Metz, France, not Detroit, MI as previously stated. You can read her take on the recent riots by clicking here or visit TheEminemBlog.com to read about her passion for Eminem and Detroit hip-hop culture.

 Music Review: Burdened Hands by Eyestrings
Early last year, Eyestrings sent us a copy of their excellent 2004 debut, "Burdened Hands". It quickly made it into my iPod and I even scribbled some notes, but it never got the full treatment. Pretty soon, their sophomore release will be available (slated for a Sept. 05 release) so you progressive fans have just enough time to fully digest the debut before progressing any further.

 Music Review: Rise Above or Fall Below by John Ludi
John Ludi is the latest persona of a local music veteran whose spent better than twenty years creating music both with bands such as "Pliny The Elder" and "Soft War" and as a solo artist. After returning to Michigan three years ago, battered and bruised from a soul-searching trek across America, John Ludi turned his thoughts inward and began his latest, and perhaps greatest work, entitled "Rise Above or Fall Below". Click "Read More" for a review and song samples.

Note: More sound samples added.
