The Grouch & Eligh: Show Preview 

Wednesday, Feb 19 2014

Financing projects through crowdfunding sites provides musicians with several upsides — and on a strictly creative level, no benefit beats these sites' ability to potentially bring ambitious ideas to life. In (successfully) using Kickstarter to fund its latest record, indie hip-hop duo the Grouch & Eligh made sure to take advantage of that last quality especially. The Oakland- and L.A.-based combo of Corey Scoffern (aka the Grouch) and Eligh Nachowitz — who have been collaborating for more than a decade — raised $90,729 for February's The Tortoise and the Crow, their first team-up since 2009's Say G&E. The Tortoise is actually a triple album, with two portions dedicated to each rapper/producer, and a third to the pair working in tandem. The result is a huge helping of music to digest — one made even more filling once you consider that the duo's soulful, futuristic beats and thoughtful flows already offer a lot to chew on.
