Japandroids = Awesome. #duo #hefe #fedit #2shows1night @levelpress @mykul_lee (at The Urban Lounge)
Having recently released their 14-track Mixtape this past Friday the 13th, Jersey-based hip-hop duo ”The Board of Education” step it up this time around, [compared to their EP] with more infectious hooks and grooves that will have you tapping your foot and bobbing your head for close to an hour. This is definitely worth listening to!
My rating: 7.7/10
Here’s my Q/A with Ryan and Darryl, the founding members of TBOE:
Briefly introduce yourself, and the band:
Ryan: I’m Ryan, the other half of the Board of Education, I’m currently a 19 year old business student at Rutgers University, New Brunswick.
Darryl: Guess that makes me Darryl the other other half of The Board…as of right now I am 20 and currently attending community college.
It’s [almost] always a pleasure to interview bands from different countries.. Tonight, I had the pleasure of speaking with Chris and Andy, the two talented gentlemen who make up the anticipated-electronic-duo Crisand, which has roots in both London and Rome.
What are your thoughts on the current status of the music industry (particularly record labels)?
Everybody’s crying about the music industry..we think that
For fans of Rammstein, Daft Punk, Prodigy, Nine Inch Nails and Depeche Mode, this Rome-and-London-based duo’s eclectic and foreign sound will certainly entertain you through your work day, as well as on the way home from work, and all the way to the nightclub where you’ll dance and party your ass off. As a matter of fact, I think I’m going to go party right now.
(Dave Grohl and his nephew? No… it’s Crysand from Rome, by way of London.)
