Vincent & Mr Green

I'm not quite sure who's Vincent and who's Mr Green of this pair. I guess it's because I see a man and a woman and not two men. Their biography says"Keefus, aka Mr. Green, was most likely raised by wolves, where he acquired a propensity to hear sounds through prisms of moonlight. Vincent, first name Jade, has traveled the world with marauding caravans of circus folk, where she had knives hurled at her by day, and sang lullabies to the freaks by night." Right.

Besides that matter, I don't know exactly what to make of them musically either. Their self-titled record "is musique noir for knife throwers, cabaret ambience for failed actresses, psychedelic hiphop for feral art critics" according to their label.

It's an interesting combination. It feels like the Dresden Dolls got huskier voices, darker, broodier music, and an MC? It's truly bizarre but the result is almost mesmerizing. Hip-hop beats over trombone and piano. I've never heard it done before.

Hear song snippets at their website.

Oh and check out this crazy 10" record for the song "Like You"

Let me start by saying nice post. I’m not sure if it has been talked about but when using Chrome I can never get the entire site to load without refreshing many times. Could just be my computer. Thanks anyway.
