In last week's DC9 in SPACE installment, Dem Southernfolkz dropped by our loft space to talk about their writing process, but also to hype up the then-upcoming release of their free-to-download, four-song EP, Something To Hold On To.
Don't really know what else we can say about Kinfolk Jack, Saturday Alridge and Big Ben that we haven't already; this is thinking man's hip-hop at its finest, with a down-home, refreshing production value unlike much else you're likely to find locally or regionally in this day and age. And with a live show that stunned at Good Records' birthday bash last April, this is an outfit worth keeping your eyes and ears on.
After the jump, a stream and download for one of the tracks off the new EP, just as a sampling in case the promise of a free four-song EP isn't enough to sell you on a simple right-click of the mouse...
For my money, this track features the best beat the trio's produced to date, not to mention a catchy hook.
