Just Listen: The Forcefield Kids

Per the message in my inbox...

"The Forcefield Kids is a collaboration between two Newcastle based musicians, rapper/writer Stain(ed) Art and deejay/producer Sleepy. Combined, they've been making forward thinking, genre breaking music for nearly two decades. This record represents their pulling together to deliver a sound characterised by poetic lyrical landscapes and lush lofi instrumentals."

Their MySpace is here. I was skeptical until I listened to the mp3 they sent along with the e-mail: "Little Miss Star" reminds me of Bran Van 3000's "Drinking In LA" - one of my favourite songs ever - if Bran Van wasn't so alright with their apathy. I can picture myself wandering the Newcastle streets alone at midnight, and while that's not the most uplifting thought, I'm happy the The Forcefield Kids can bring me there.
