Did You Get The Message?

On his song “High Hopes,” Huey P provides some specific commentary on our current situation: “The stupidity is spreading… It is airborne and contagious.”

That’s from the third track on his highly political 2015 album, Did You Get the Message. It’s a great record for making sense of the recent election, with a reminder–via a John Lennon vocal sample–that the system hasn’t been on your side since before you were born. There’s also some unique production work here that warrants your attention, from “underwater” vocal effects to a grounding, insistent buzz that pervades several songs. Huey P was nominated for an artist-of-the-year award at the Seattle Sound Music Awards that same year.
