All I know about this CD before listening to it is that its
by a guy called Matt Currie. My plus one said he was trying to create
a bit of intrigue like The Streets? Fail. But still, after a bit of
internet snooping, I find out hes from Norwich, he makes music
(no shit) and watches documentaries. He also likes Adrian Chiles.
Oh. After listening to it, I know that Matt Currie raps really, really
fast and reminds me of fellow hip-hop artist, Josh Martinez. Because,
aside from some hot beats, Currie is a little bit kooky, dubbing himself
on one track as spinal rap, with a sometimes subversive
mix of lyrical content encompassing war, being watched by technology,
phone hacking, terrorism and, er, shagging Beyonce.
At times, he hints at boredom with modern life and all it conforms
to; in other tracks he talks about someone called Patrick, because
it rhymes with dick. Theres a sample from Arctic
Monkeys too. The kind of man that makes you want to cause treason
apparently, Superdopeness (as Ill assume this CD
is called) is an interesting change from the tuneless indie punk that
I have been reviewing of late. The last line here is question
everything you believe in. Will Matt Currie from Norwich do
this? Have a listen. He might just change something.
