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.
It’s goin down 06.23.12 in Cleveland, OH, in the glorious old Lasalle Theater. Dats right, A NEW 2MERICA LP ready for release!! It features the latest El Skorpion episode (3 of 5) titled “Mass Entertainment”, plus 4 more new tracks to stuff into your earhole. Ezraz has been busy but never too busy for his citizen duty.
If you want to come out now is the time. This party should be crazy fun, with 2MERICAns taking a lead spot in the shindig. Here is more info and the free registration. Brings some friends and let’s throw down for all the hard work everyone has done over the years. It’s been a crazy last 10 years and all 2mericans deserve some R&R!
Hot on and hot for Jango Radio! Jango is my favorite (and most often ignored) online streaming system, comparable to pandora, last.fm, and rdio. It’s all free and you can tune into other people’s custom crafted streams or build your own. Either way the mix is good, the selection is deep, and what sets Jango apart is they play independent artists mixed with the classics and majors.
Yes it’s pay to play but indies get worldwide airplay for pennies. Plus it is easy to opt out, gives great stats, and lets you interact with fans. All artists get paid royalties too. Great platform overall.
The best part of Jango Radio? 2MERICA is a popular artist, streaming 10+ songs to the planet and consistently scoring good reviews. We’ve been in their top charts 7 straight weeks and about 35 weeks total last year. So click over and tune in, see what it’s all about.
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.
“Keep Steady”, the 2nd scene from 2MERICA’s incremental-elpee Scherzo Elskorpion, is out on iTunes and most of the other digital stores. Download now and inject into your explicit earholes. The video is in production and should be online soon.
“Never Met Tomorrow” kicked off our story, and “Keep Steady” moves us to through to the subsequent night. There will be three more vignettes to explore before concluding this tale. Before the end of the 2011 we’ll get #3 out the door, so enjoy this trip through the 2MERICAN sonic landscape. (We also recommend you adjust your mp3 tags to put them together as an album.)
“Keep Steady” features an all-star 2MERICA lineup: Jaimeson 7M on vocals, Jesus Irizarry on electric bass, Mistaswift on vdrums, J. on sax, plus beats and standup bass by Ezraz and funky guitar by Zane. Enjoy you some.
It has begun it’s journey through the tubes of the internet, fresh from a session at The All Night Party and sounding so tasty. You will need to cue it up right after “Never Met Tomorrow” for part 2 of Scherzo Elskorpion, the 3rd 2MERICA LP in progress.
We can’t link to buy or even preview yet since those links don’t exist. Just wanted to drop some pre-release hype onto the internut to show some charisma. C’mon people! Update: CDBaby failed the DNA test but we still love it.
Wow, the 2MERIMIX OPEN MIND NITE @ The Duck last night has left all involved groggy and probably a bit irritable, but time marches on, the beat goes on, the show must go on, etc.. Thankfully two bits of progress in the battle against irrelevance came through today:
– First off the next 2MERICA single just left the mastering engineer and it’s making it’s way to the tubes of the internets. Titled “Keep Steady”, it’s the 2nd of 5 tracks from the Scherzo Elskorpion LP. It’s also the ‘sex scene’ in the soundtrack so check it out! Like most 2MERICA songs, it’s a curveball that turns into a knuckleball right before you swing and miss, so yeah, stay tooned for the latest and greatest. This track is an old school sick jam with Jesus on bass, Swifty on the v-drums, some killer sax from J, Jaimeson doing his dirty rap, lil’ Z on guitars, and Ezraz supplying the remaining noise. It should be available for purchase at the usual suspects (iTunes, cdbaby, amazon) and for streaming (Napster, Spotify, and Jango) in about a month.
– Secondly, the process of ‘going legit’ (aka getting our chit together) has continued, with a parent company formed to manage the Flux-adel Recording Division and all of it’s various progressions and proclivities. You the faithful internet cruiser won’t notice or care about this, but we are all proud and wanted to make the announcement. Collinwood Sun LLC has risen.
So yeah. My manager Fahqfasse finally got some stuff done. I get to hang out back and pee on his office, the mighty brick fortress known as FF Bookman Promotions. Which is my little way of posting status updates on his wall.
