Foreign Goods w/ Moors Blackmon (St Paul), Lorde Freddee
9 pm, 21+, $10
Hear the combined forces of some of Milwaukee's and the Twin Cities' ecclectic groups. Foreign Goods has been taking Milwaukee by storm with their distinct style of Black American Music combining elemens of african, south american, hip-hop, blues, soul and jazz music. Moors Blackmon takes you on an intergalactic journey with their space funk, hailing from St. Paul-via-Mars. Lorde Fredd33 is one of the most energetic acts in Milwaukee. Check out the bios and links below for more info.
Foreign Goods will also be releasing their live EP "Coronation," out on Gloss Records. The limited cassette will available at the show for purchase.
"What do you get when rap, jazz, hip hop, and funk are meshed with the sounds of Columbian and Ethiopian music? There really is only one answer: if you selected Foreign Goods you’re correct. Foreign Good’s inspiration stems from Marvin Gaye to Kendrick Lamar and from Herbie Hancock to Tame Impala. The nine-piece band has grown over time with the most recent addition being frontman and saxophone player Jay Anderson‘s brother, Michael Anderson, on trumpet. Jay Anderson once described the band’s process this way: 'Sometimes I’ll bring in some Ethiopian-folk-music-psychedelic-trance-North-Indian-Dervish-y stuff, maybe a Willie Bobo cover, or maybe just an idea I was playing with. The other members suggest material and ideas constantly, and we shape them over time.'”
-Dylan Deprey, Urban Milwaukee
Moors Blackmon (St Paul, MN)
Moors Blackmon is an intergalactic vessel from the future that landed here on Earth to accelerate the development of humans through the power of sound. The music, described as psychedelecrtric fazz, draws inspiration from artist and bands such as Herbie Hancock, Sun Ra, Parliament Funkadelic, Jimi Hendrix to name a few. Moors Blackmon is an intergalactic vessel and with the crew of Strange, Brewington and Martinneau, its mission is to travel through space and time expand the mind of every civilization it encounters with its substantial sonic battery.
Audiences throughout the Midwest have known about Lorde Fredd33's chaotic live shows for years. After 2015's critically acclaimed EP, "33: The Education," Lorde Fredd33 finally drops his first full length record, "Dead Man's View," on Gloss.
Produced by fellow New Age Narcissism member Q the Sun, "Dead Man's View" is his heaviest and most experimental recording to date. His signature voice, coupled with Q the Sun's hypnotic instrumentals, will leave listeners possessed...an album that will indelibly creep and lurk inside long after repeated listens.
