Mellow Music Group continues to drop fire. This time Seattle producer Def Dee links up with his emcee ace since Junior High Zar for this free  Zulu Delta EP. The result is some pure 1996-inspired Hip Hop.

“Getting creative was the easy part… I was just trying to express my own personal interpretation of Hip-Hop,” says Zar, “This Ep was intended to show that there still exists classic lyricists.”

For well over a decade, Tim Pritchard has been a figure of Dayton, Ohio’s historic music scene. These days, he’s fronting a new folk-rock band called Tim Pritchard & The Boxcar Suite. The group recently released the gorgeous and plaintive It Shall Be Revealed and is leaving the Gem City more and more.

While The Boxcar Suite certainly possesses folk elements, the music steers clear of cliché methods employed by many in this camp. It Shall Be Revealed is not trite Americana, but rather a collection of graceful songs influenced by time-honored traditions.

Broken, melancholic, and beautiful, Tim Pritchard & The Boxcar Suite sound like Richard Buckner fronting a heavier-hitting Byrds. There is no reinventing the wheel on It Shall Be Revealed and that’s exactly what gives the album its curative nature.
