Solillaquists of Sound, 'No More Heroes' (Anti-)

6
No More Heroes
Critical Mass
Label: Anti-

by David Peisner

This Orlando crew is like a bizarro world Black Eyed Peas. SoS's Swamburger, a forceful, hyperliterate MC, and Alexandrah, a beguiling vocalist, have a will.i.am/ Fergie dynamic, and however deep beatmaker DiViNCi wades into funk, rock, trip-hop, folk, or Afrobeat, No More Heroes never buries its pop hooks. Where Black Eyed Peas assiduously avoid meaningful subject matter, SoS offer nothing but. Both approaches can grow tiresome. Here, tunes about racism, consumer culture, and the evils of TV hit their marks, then hit them again and again and again.
