Our neighbors to the north have an amazing music scene and a plethora of quality artists, but one group is gaining a huge buzz here in the states. The group is The Carps. They hail from Toronto (one of my favorite cities in the world). The Carps is a duo consisting of Jahmal Tonge & Neil White. Jahmal reminds me of Corey Glover of Living Color. The Carps blend punk, hip hop, electronic into a sound of their of own.
They have a new ep entitled "The Young & Passionate Days of Carpedia" and it is definitely worth checking out. It has a track featuring Chicago's Cool Kids.
