i’ve just come across pigeon hole, a canadian hip-hop act who’ve just put out their album age like astronauts. the act consists of dusty melo and marmalade, who met in nanaimo, british columbia. having formed a vancouver super-group called the sweatshop union in the early 00s, they’ve been around for a while. they’ve shared stages with snoop, j5, talib kweli and the roots, and have been nominated for the prestigious juno award on several occasions.
what’s exciting is the video for bonfire, a psych-weirdout trip on a pacific beach with a hot chick and a dancing spaceman. the track itself sounds just like you’d imagine, or as marmalade calls it, “boombap-psych rap, maybe?” check the video here and go buy the album on bandcamp.
