Stream: G&D (Georgia Anne Muldrow & Dudley Perkins) – “Power”
Georgia Anne Muldrow & Dudley Perkins Celebrate Album Release With New Single, Concerts In Brooklyn & Los Angeles
Critical Praise for G&D:
“[She’s] an enormously promising young talent.” – NPR
“Maintaining a stinging originality in a world of musical predictability bless the Jah Jah and Dudley – the freshest bloodlines in the game today.” – Gilles Peterson, renowned DJ, BBC
Today, hip-hop, soul and g-funk duo G&D celebrates the release of their new album The Lighthouse with a brand new single, “Power,” as well as a concert at Brooklyn Bowl in New York City. They will also jet to Los Angeles for another concert in support of the album at Low End Theory tomorrow, May 22.
On “Power,” Georgia Anne Muldrow & Dudley Perkins pay homage to the African origins of humanity and the inherent power in their blackness over a classic West Coast drum beat mixed with a mash-up of jazz scat solos. The track is up-tempo, joyous and perfectly represents their progressive musical talents as well as their philosophical message as artists. Creativity, expression, unity and love are what drive the duo’s artistic vision and the track encapsulates the overarching message of their new record. In addition to their album streaming on NPR.org, Bandcamp The Blog also features an in-depth piece about the duo, their work and their philosophy on the music industry.
