Three’s a crowd, two makes for a Stereo Crowd, and this is one big and powerful sounding album. Strong rock influence plus Hip Hop and some soulful R&B to smooth it out. Catchy without being cliche’. Stereo Crowd’s self titled debut is fun with a side of funk.
Heavy guitar, funky sounds, male/female rap, female/male singing. Boomin basslines and sweet drumlines keep it groovin start to finish. The album is definitely designed to be played LOUD. The type of music that drives a crowd – I hear this album and wish it was being played full tilt live on stage.
The musical variety is excellent, while there is certainly a clear rock undertone the layers seem to stem from any genre at any time. Very interesting to listen to straight through. Never gets boring.
In a crowded industry, Stereo Crowd has put out a strong debut, I’m dig-gin it, and you should definitely give em a listen!
