MP3: G&D (Georgia Anne Muldrow & Dudley Perkins) - "Muthadear"
MTV Hive Premieres A Tribute To Mothers From Georgia Anne Muldrow & Dudley Perkins
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
With Mother's Day approaching this weekend, G&D's release of their new song, "Muthadear," an old-school R&B influenced hip-hop track, couldn't be any timelier. The song is taken from the duo's upcoming album, The Lighthouse, due out May 21 on the band's own label, SomeOthaShip Connect.
Georgia Anne Muldrow's signature production provides a throwback orchestral beat as Dudley Perkins describes a vivid memory from his youth when his mother caught him smoking weed. Of the experience he recalls comically, "My mother asked me about it and told me not to lie. I told her the truth [and] she commenced to smack out my left tooth." On the hook Georgia sings "You gave me a melody/Deep within/How I love you/Always been a friend/Life depends on you," expressing her reverence for her own as well as all mothers, whom she describes as "the feminine energetic aspect that holds the world together."
G&D will perform at Brooklyn Bowl in New York on May 21 and at Low End Theory in Los Angeles on May 22 to celebrate the release of The Lighthouse, which is available for pre-order through the duo's bandcamp page.
