Kala and the Lost Tribe

CE, Krychek, and Kala & the Lost Tribe to play National Sawdust's "THE REVOLUTION VOL. 11" on 1/21

Now in its 11th edition, "THE REVOLUTION" concert series at National Sawdust has consistently held it down by featuring talent both top-notch and under the national radar, but always local. Which is the reason why this ver blog decided to partner with them! This month's cream of the crop features CE of Quincy Vidal spitting and singing his solo stuff, Krychek's bizzare electropop and the loungy hip-hop of Kala and the Lost Tribe

CE (pronounced "See," pictured) is 1/2 of NY indie-rap stalwart Quincy Vidal, also an established emcee/producer. His solo recordings feature sedated instrumentals and potent lyrics that are mostly rapped but often sung as well. Krychek, the only non hip hop artist on the bill, will break the funky grooves with music that sounds like a surprisingly functional marriage between Nine Inche Nails and Tears for Fears. Their punky, spacy electropop is at times unstable, at others tranquil but always transfixing.  Kala and The Lost Tribe serve the classic, never cliché, combo of poignant, clever rapping over jazzy, keys-driven backing tracks. Check out their recent single/video 'Chill" streaming below.

You can catch these NYC artists live at The National Sawdust on 1/21 - and copies of The Deli will be there! —Henry Solotaroff-Webber
