Emergency Pizza Party is Latest Scrub Club Artist to Shine - Page 2
One of the tracks that really stands out is "Look at My Mouth (Again)" featuring ZeaLouS1. It stands out because it's a very strange track, focusing on a body part not generally focused on in any context.
Shine Avenue reaches it's apex with the last two songs on the album. "Shine Avenue" is an uplifting backyard barbecue type of jam highlighting welcoming listeners to Shine Avenue, an actual street in Orlando. Before a spoken word live track at the very end, EPP wraps up the music with "The Easy Way," the first rap song I've ever heard that references both Hot Shots and Hot Shots: Part Deux.
Band member Benjamin Bear (and also solo Scrub Club artist) was responsible for mastering the album. Sometimes this can lead to disastrous results, when considering independent music. In this case, everything seems to click smoothly.
Shine Avenue is quirky, energetic and a prime example of artists pretty much doing whatever the hell they want. Total creative freedom. This is not music that is tailored to mainstream radio play on the Top 40 stations, which is a good thing. EPP has a style that is best explained by saying it's like structured freestyle rap. That's a bit of a conundrum, but it works.
Overall Emergency Pizza Party's Shine Avenue is a fun freestyle rap romp through the town of Orlando, but is accessible even if you aren't familiar with the inner sanctum of O-town. Plus, it's a free download, so you have nothing to lose by checking them out.
