If you took some R&B, disco and soul, made it eat a
handful of mushrooms and wander around West Oakland
for awhile, you’d get Harvey Lindo’s “Kid Gloves: A
Modaji Long Player.”
The downtempo hip hop tracks on this album have a
variety of vocalists and MCs, ranging from the En
Vogue-esque stylings of Phillipa Alexander, to the
conscious raps of Lacks and Roddy Rod and the spoken
word poetry of Kat Johnson.
My favorite is “Miller’s Lattice,” a hypnotically
psychedelic UFO tour through time travel and public
transportation with Tracey Walter’s sampled Repo Man
soliloquies as our guides.
Dominic Jacobson (aka Harvey Lindo) doesn’t have his
own MySpace page, but one of his songs is up here:
