One local MC who’s nowhere near retirement, lyric spitter and truth teller MR. LIF, takes to the road with fellow political radicals the Coup the day after Thanksgiving in Bellingham, Washington. Lif’s 2005 release, Mo’ Mega (Definitive Jux), was a tour-de-force that still has people talking, and the Coup, whose biggest track is “9 Million Ways To Kill a CEO,” don’t pull any punches either. The 20-date tour has them criss-crossing our confused country and landing in Boston December 15 at the Paradise.
We got a little shock when we found local funk group PROJECT MOVE on an English compilation of modern electronic soul called Broadcite Presents: Unplugged Volume 2 — Internal Reflection that includes sci-fi sound from names like Osunlade, Quentin Harris and Black Science Orchestra. “ ‘Butterfly Theory,’ ” say the liner notes, “is a track for the intellectual listener, deep in thought as well as a journey through a jazz space odyssey.” The 13-song compilation came out in May on England’s Broadcite Records.
