Thanks to the inexplicable popularity of my Submit Music page, I always have a digital backlog of albums, EPs, singles and videos awaiting my perusal. Here’s another recent winner, along with the Bandcamp link so you can buy the music straight from the source. Tell ’em I sent ya. And if you’ve got something I need to hear, send it my way. If I think you’re half as good as you think you are, I just might include you next time.
Rainy Day EP
HOME BASE: Edmonton.
THE EDITED PRESS RELEASE: “Thug Shells has arrived with her debut hip-hop release, the Rainy Day EP, flexing both her knack for witty raps and catchy singer-songwriter hooks to twist tales of growth, love and loss. The Rainy Day EP exists to bring solace to those on their own paths to self-discovery by courageously putting vulnerabilities on record and reminding listeners of the strength that they possess within once they, too, learn to let go. Enjoy the ride as the groovy melodies and soulful instrumentals lay the foundation for the laid-back lyrics to paint soundscapes that will soothe the soul. Pocket sized self-described bubbly gangster Thug Shells is a conscious rapper straight out of Alberta, pre-packaged with sass and (b)ass. With an emphasis on positivity, this little punchline pixie captivates crowds in the only way she knows how: gangster adorability. If you mixed equal parts Slim Shady, Mac Miller and The Little Mermaid and put it into a pint-sized package, Thug Shells is what you would end up with. Expect freestyles as ferocious as her ferrets, and only the freshest most banging of beats.”
MY TWO CENTS: So bright and sunny you need to wear shades. Shells to the yeah!
