Egyptian Hip Hop - SYH
Neither Egyptian or hip hop…
Back in 2010 four 17 yr dudes (^^^) hailing from Manchester released a phenomenal 4-track 12” EP (OOP) called Some Reptiles Grew Wings on Moshi Moshi that went largely unnoticed. Just take that in for a moment, 17 fucking years old. Okay, so I grabbed a copy because at the time I was (still) obsessed with Summer Camp, who had just released their debut 7” there as well, and I was hungry for other finds from Moshi Moshi.
Some Reptiles Grew Wings was a terrifically strong debut from a new band, offering an insanely catchy pop combination, something akin to a cross between Starfucker & TheStrokes. Having not heard anything from these guys in years, I had assumed the one time EP was it. Yet seemingly out of no they’re slated for a full length release come 10/22. To be honest I hadn’t checked up on them in a while, but I’m just so psyched to see an album on the way, and soon.
Seriously this is some potentially viral shit we’re talkin about here, so go snag a download of Some Reptiles Grew Wings to keep you occupied till October.
Egyptian Hip Hop - Good Don’t Sleep 2XLP is out 10/22 from R&S Records, but shipping to the states is atrociously $$$ (£10-15) so looks like Norman Records has the best deal.
