electronic, dub, drum duo...EOTO

          It was a pleasure for me not only to initially hear of for the first time, but also to see for the first time EOTO, while i was in Key West. I was told it was two guys from String Cheese Incident. I had heard of String Cheese, not heard too much, but knew that they were dank. And so, Michael Travis and Jason Hann, drummer and percussionist from String Cheese, make up the super dankness that is EOTO. They played at a cool place called the Green Parrot and totally wrecked the place. They do live drums combined with live computer, electronic, synthesizer based improv. eoto3A lot of it is dance, like some seriously funky groovin, and also a little dub, reggae feel someimes. Michael Travis loops tons of crazy shit and switches it all up live in addition to playing all kinds of synths and keys and shit, plus awesome live drums by Hann were awesome. It was a crazy show, everyone at this bar was going nuts and dancing all over the place…faces were abandoned. Pretty unique and super dank, it instantly made me a huge fan of EOTO

Check out these two gems and enjoy the crazy awesome groovage. I recommend their albums as well, which can be found anywhere or on iTunes or whatever

EOTO – Camel Bend

EOTO – Warp

     P.S. if you go to Vandy/live in Nashville and see this today, EOTO is playing tonight (3/16) at Windows on the Cumberland, an interesting bar on 2nd ave N. where the owner, Boots, bar-tends and works the soundboard

more posts to ensue; long haired freaky people need not apply…

alright just thought that was funny…dont really need to say much here. people like that will never see this site because all they do on their computers is watch pre-recorded videos of themselves working out…to pump themselves up, while they work out more. 

          On a cooler note, if anyone hasn’t seen/heard these ridiculous youtube videos, you HAVE TO. Right Side of the Tree Boys started out supposedly as a group of white dudes from UGA that rap about spring break, beer pong, and pregaming. Its hilarious and totally ridiculous. They also have a cover of lollipop which is serious, and therefore kinda awkward. But check ’em out…its a little fratty, but its funny and their rhymes are pretty good, look up pregaming too

RST Original Song – Spring Break Anthem (i know its a little late for some of you, still listen though, flows are sweet – also peep the Georgia hoody)

RST Original Song – Make an A (from “Make It Rain”)

RST Original Song – Beer Pong Anthem (from “King Kong” also check out their remix)

          A little comparable to Asher Roth, i guess…these guys now have been blowing up and have an album on iTunes called Nove Project,which is better than the youtube videos… less funny, better produced, little different style (acoustic/rap…sometimes slow), but its cool. Band members now are Payne Lindsey, Jeremy Jones and Matty P, I say give it a listen and a buy if you like it.
