about

After 10 years of scene-building in Portland,ME as an mc, promoter, and banner-guard for Milled Pavement Records, 5 years of touring throughout 5 countries (most recently France, Germany, and Switzerland this past April/May with Milled Pavement CEO Moshe), over 600 performances, 2 mixtapes, 2 ep’s, 1 7″ single, countless featured appearances, and performing live with a venerable who’s-who of independent hip-hop, Portland’s own BRZOWSKI returns with his sophomore solo release. “A Fitful Sleep” finds our narrator moving away from the thick veil of funereal affectations of his debut, and now speaks from a soapbox steeped in the culture of independent artistry and on top of a widely broadened palette of production sounds (most notably the coloring of early Sabbath-style faux-psychedelia), even if the punk/ metal/ gothic/ outlaw aesthetics remain on the skin. This album begins at the touchstone of hip-hop, and then musically enacts a swift departure. Doomy rock guitar/live instrumentation, Rapped/sung/screamed vocals, traditional sampling, ominous synths, and electronic drums all vie for elbow room in this carefully constructed Frankenstein of an album. Think Black Widow mugging an early 2000′s art-rap DJ outside a divebar on the edge of town. No Rest for the Wicked.
