LaToya Kent and RA Washington are part of Mourning [A] BLKstar (an ensemble out of Cleveland) and have formed a new project, Me:You. "Crawl on yer belly," the new single from Me:You, is hard to describe. It's a buzzing swirl of noise that is like a crossover of Peaches and hip hop. It's dissonant and most certainly not for the more mainstream listeners out there, but these is something almost accessible in "Crawl on yer belly." But just barely.
LaToya Kent and RA Washington say of their new project and upcoming album:
"Field Tapes in the Trash is a testament of its maker's experience of analog, digital, grandma’s Saturday morning records spinning and leather Cadillac back seats stuck to the thighs. Angst that never let go amidst a world against brown skin coupled with praise of its musings and rapture."See, when you feel it all, everything shows up in the story. The narrative wild and pulsing with its own blood. The stage a display of interpretation moving with those that witness it."Presenting a piece that will wear in with time. A loop that will circle around and back again. And again and settle into it. "ME:YOU is her and him. "If he is the beat she is the heart. Together they stay alive as the nucleus of their mission to sound. "Can you stare into the sun?"
You can listen to "Crawl on yer belly" below. Field Tapes in Der Trash is due out on April 21 via American Dreams, and can be pre-ordered here.
