Bossiie

Tjovitjo

Review by Gary Hill

I like this EP. It’s hip hop, but it’s also unique. There is sort of world sound built into this, but it’s not overpowering. The three songs presented here represent different sounds, making this a cool set. As is true with a lot of hip hop, this earns a parental advisory (for two songs) but clean versions are available.

This review is available in book format (hardcover and paperback) in Music Street Journal: 2014  Volume 3 at lulu.com/strangesound.

Track by Track Review
Hero

The opening section is dreamy and quite pretty. It has some nice sung vocals. It drops way down for the rap. The song has a nice balance between the two sections. It’s a slow moving and rather gentle piece. I like the raps on this quite a bit. This piece is organically “clean.”

TIP
A more energized number, I love some of the almost space rock keyboard bits. Some parts of the rap here work even better than those on the previous number. For me some of the others here are a little awkward. Still, it’s a good tune with a good groove.
Tjovitjo (Whistle Song)
This is very rhythmic and also otherworldly. It definitely earns a parental advisory, too. I really like this song, though. It’s weird, but also very tasty.
