  • Hard Truth: T-K.A.S.H. in Australia

Though the postponement of the Hard Truth Soldiers Tour--featuring acts signed to Paris' Guerilla Funk label, along with national artists like Pete Rock, dead prez, Planet Asia, Immortal Technique and Kam--was disappointing, that hasn't deterred the indie label from releasing new music.

Yesterday, May 12, the new album from Paris/Boots Riley protégé (and KPFA radio host) T-K.A.S.H. was released. I've yet to hear the album--maybe my review copy was also postponed--but it has one of the cleverest double-entendre titles in quite a while: Brains All Over the Streets. Ostensibly a reference to the bloody splatter of gray matter resulting from inner-city violence, it actually refers to the turf-oriented intellectualism T-K.A.S.H. specializes in. Listen to a preview here.

Guerilla Funk also announced another new release, the Hard Truth Soldiers Vol. 2 compilation, which features tracks from Paris, T-K.A.S.H., Jasiri X, NyOil, Truth Universal, and the Conscious Daughters. A preview can be heard here. As for the tour, Guerilla Funk's official statement is "we're optimistic that this will be the tour to beat this summer. The revised schedule will be made public shortly."  For updates, check the Guerilla Funk website or click here.
