Blue Mountains natives DJ Morgs, MC Tuka and MC Jeswon, collectively Thundamentals, are back with the follow-up to 2011’s Foreverlution. And it lives up to that legacy.
‘Smiles Don’t Lie’ has been getting radio play for a while now and is probably the best track on the album, familiarity aside. It’s clean (the sound, not the lyrics), has a great beat and is just a good groove. It leads straight into ‘Quit Your Job’, which really shows the guys’ lyrical ability, while still having a pretty catchy chorus and a cool little hook. Next up is ‘Something I Said’, which has also been getting radio play on the J’s. It’s a cool little tune – Thom Crawford’s vocals on the chorus are great.
The whole album is a great groove start to finish; the beats and tunes are fantastic. The rapping and the lyrics are pretty standard, but it’s the melodies and the featured artists that really steal the show vocally. All in all, it’s a good album worth buying on the back of ‘Smiles Don’t Lie’ and ‘Something I Said’ alone, but with tracks like ‘Noodle Soup’ and ‘Holding Your Hand’ on there too, it’s well worth your money.
These guys are touring this month, so go check them out if it’s not too late.
