It’s the anti-facebook, no it’s the anti-circle, no it’s the anti-pop live-remix outfit known as 2MERICA, and they have released their 3rd LP and it’s fun-kay! Check out some Mass Entertainment here, here, here, and here. The perfect band for the digital age, 2MERICA smashes every genre they can into the stew, cracking genomes and slapping baby bottoms on this planet and the next.
Completed in 2005, 2MERICA’s 1st LP “Record Profits” was recorded in the motel rooms of America. 14 pieces strong featuring a cast of many without a care in the world, it’s still available a few places online if you groogle it. Settling into his studio “The Fluxadelic Underground” allowed Ezraz to produce the follow-up “Sensors & Switches & Buttons” in 2007 without a sophomore slunk. Some live-in-studio tracks were also captured and ultimately released as the singles “Never Met Tomorrow” and “Keep Steady” in 2009 & 2010.
Upgrading the studio into “The Flux-adel Recording Division” in 2010 has allowed Ezraz to produce other acts (grookle Roaming Crazy, Winnie Rose, The Stares 20/20, & Ezraz) as well as drop the latest 2MERICAN adventure into your earholes.
Mass Entertainment features JP Abramczyk on guitars, Mistaswift on drums, Jesus Irizarry on bass, Jaimeson Lowell on raps, and Lo Cro on vocals. Just like the rest of the collection, it was produced by Ezraz Jones and mastered by Dave Davis.
Peep it. If you like what you hear, check out the back catalog. By being both ahead and behind at the same time, 2MERICA ends up being just right.
Introducing our latest talent, Winnie Rose! She’s moving up the charts on Jango and her debut single “The Nightlight Aria” b/w “For The Fallen” is now available for download at your favorite online store. Here’s the video that accompanied the Aria at the Cleveland Release Party:
Ok, you know that Scherzo Elskorpion is a 5 song LP featuring a sicko version of 2MERICA. You know that the first 2 of the 5 tracks are released and available everywhere. You might even wait around 2 more years for the completion.
But you now know that 2MERICA has launched anew with new tracks, a new style lineup, better gear, less sense, and more skills. There is no timeline set yet but the early tracks are so sly and nice, hot like Florida patios, smooth like Carlos Santanas organically conditioned hair.
Oh man a fly just committed suicide in my hand, tried to stop my finger flick and got juiced. Ouch gross can’t pick my nose with that finger anymore –ezraz. Ps I have some solo instrumental stuff coming out under Ezraz – stay tuned for links and artwork.
In nature you have to stay still to see the action around you. Not even ridiculous clothing will scare away nature if you respect it and remain calm.
In the world where I do art it is different. My stillness gets me nothing but an improved portfolio. My trophy case sits empty as the ducks waddle past me.
So I have begun the daily engagement again, pushing, redecorating, sometimes even creating for the sake of attention. Creating art for attention is my MO, but creating attention for my art is very difficult and compromising.
But I guess we all clean our feathers before jumping back in.
Do you read the paper? Keep up on the scene? Stay current, stay informed, stay with whatever is happening in the now? Haha read the paper, that is very old school! So yeah I keep up. I know plenty of ish about what is going on. I even predict how it will go down most of the time. Life doesn’t totally shock me anymore. I roll with the punches.
But my new manager Fahqfase Bookman argues otherwise. This dude knows all sorts of things about what’s going on around town. He tells me about things in my own backyard, asks if I know about them and I don’t. He says he learns these things from facebook. I am sitting this one out. Please with the facebook. I wish those people would check out the Internet, it’s something you can get to from facebook.
I don’t twitter either so im a total dinosaur these days. I have people actually trying to explain this stuff to me, like I’m missing out because I don’t understand. I usually tell them that I have broken up and remarried the internet about 5x in the last 15 years.
Until facebook is superseded I’m just forced to be out of the loop. Uninformed. Damn near ignant to the world around me. Haha yeah right, fuck facebook.
CLEVELAND, OHIO – The man known as “King James” shocked the sports world today by announcing he would forego his NBA free agency and instead sign with little known team The 2merican Dirt Devils. Potentially sacrificing hundreds of millions of dollars, Lebron says this unheralded move was done “just for the funk of it.”
This amazing development, the latest in James’ contractual ballyhoo that has gone into a fever pitch since Wednesday, is unheralded in the sports world even for a number 23. But unlike the process so far, this begs even more questions. Who are the Dirt Devils? What and where is 2merica? What does Kobe think?
For some answers on this rapidly developing story, we turned to Fugfayz Bookman, commissioner of the EBA, the league that sponsors the 2mericans. This mysterious basketball league won’t divulge where they hold their games, the current standings, or even what the E stands for, but Mr. Bookman claims LeBron will fit right in. “We started a fight club, but with basketballs.” When pressed about the ability of the Dirt Devils to match the Cleveland Cavaliers’ multimillion dollar budget and lavish treatment of it’s superstar players, Mr. Bookman boasted “We use eBay alot, so we have some nice stuff.”
The only other EBL player making himself available to the press is Ezrazmus Jones, a forward for the 2merican squad and biggest star (until now). “We are excited” said the calm EzRaz, whose mercurial and magical nature on court has earned him the nickname “Elemento”. “LeBron is a great Ohio Player so he should fit right in. I walk past that huge-ass sign of his all the time and I like it.” When asked if he could release any further information on the team or the management he laughed and declined, but he did direct us to his compuserve electronic mail account. He then said “Twitter my gopher” and ended the interview.
Finally replying to our queries through email, Jones continued to boast about his team, seemingly unaware of the hoopla surrounding him and the situation. “We have some great young talent to add to the mix so it should be a killer year. Both Jak “DirtyHott” Hanksta and Dragon Mikocovic are young ballers, and we know Coach Rudy will work them in quickly.”
Coach Rudolph Irisarzo is the man tasked with incorporating James’ amazing talent. “I accept this challenge. It is a sign. LeBron will be surrounded with talent, a great group of guys.” The King and two rookies will join an established core of big red Jaimeson “Sevenem” Lowell down low and Louie “Stonerock” Heat setting the tempo. Unlike the NBA, there will be plenty of balls to go around. “Now, the adjustment won’t be easy” opines Irisarzo, “so we gone ‘head and hired a personal liason for Lebron, a great fella named Jesus. LeBron will feel right at home with Jesus on speed-dial.”
Stay tuned basketball fans as this story will be updated with breaking news. Surely you should refresh this story and yourself often. ¥Associated Pruss 2010
