((Brother Reade)) Band Profile and Upcoming New York City Concerts - Oh My Rockness

L.A. by-way-of-N.C.'s Brother Reade are a hip-hop duo that combines silky-smooth southern lyrical flow (courtesy of MC Jimmy Jamz, a former punk rocker turned potent rapper) with complex glitchy-clicky electro-beats and atmospheric computer tricks (courtesy of DJ Bobby Evans).

Their songs take all sorts of sonically interesting turns; sometimes they get spacey, other times they're down-tempo chill, sometimes they're up and dance-y, and sometimes their songs sound a like "Kid A" era Radiohead. It's all over the place.

And though they're just one MC and one DJ, Brother Reade are anything but the formulaic hip-hop duo. They're definitely doing their own thing. Brother Reade's album "Rap Music" is out now on Record Collection (that fine label that brought you The Walkmen). For fans of Aesop Rock, Cadence Weapon, and El-P.
