The Glow Mechanics are easily one of my favorite indie groups. One of the fantastic advantages of rap as a musical style is the ability to engage in complicated wordplay. It hearkens back to poetry…except with the added element of carseat-rattling beats. Let Schmo Mechanics spin you a yarn. This is intellectual rap underscored by snappy, clean, airy beats. It’s smart rap over elevator music and it simply works. Alex and I have digged this duo big-time since we found their slick debut Introducing… in 2013 (which is free and definitely worth your 15 minutes).
