New Chi-t Featured In Chicago Reader’s Favorite Music Of 2013

Chicago Reader: Our Favorite Music Of 2013

Six Reader writers, 12 months, 30 picks — and not one list that just rearranges the same records you’ll see everywhere else: Click to read the full article on chicagoreader.com

This week, New Chi-t appeared on the front page of Chicago Reader. A collaboration between Netherfriends and a slew of Chicago artists, the project was featured in the Hip-Hop segment of The Reader’s  Favorite Music of 2013:

Overlooked Chicago hip-hop | Leor Galil

Netherfriends, New CHI-t
Nomadic indie-popper Shawn Rosen­blatt (aka Netherfriends) is no stranger to hip-hop: 2011’sNetherfriends Does Nilsson includes a wobbly, funky tune called “Full of It” with local MC ShowYouSuck. That track also appears on New CHI-t, a rap-centric collection of Netherfriends collaborations featuring local hip-hop acts such as the Whoevers, Fess Grandiose, and Impolite Society. Rosenblatt molds his psychedelic-tinged pop—sometimes peppy, sometimes wistful, sometimes both at once—into the foundation for fun hip-hop tracks. The Sublime-sampling “Summertime” in particular makes me yearn for warm-weather adventures even more than I usually do.

Retrospect – “Can I” (Feat. Chandler London, J Arthur, Dot Kom, & ShowYouSuck)

Directed by Adebowale Adesuyi
Produced by Sauce Cools

Hmm, is it the homage to Spike Lee’s Do The Right Thing? No. Is it the 90s throwback vibe? No. Is it the fresh features from Chandler London, J Arthur, Dot Kom, and ShowYouSuck? No.

Not sure what it is, really, but when it comes to this new Retrospect video, if the question is “Can I,” the answer is YES.

“Can I” is the second single from Retrospect’s upcoming EP, The Breakout.

Catch them live with Fess Grandiose, Impolite Society, and The WHOevers on March 21st at Lincoln Hall.
