Flobots - NOENEMIES (CD)
American alternative hip-hop band’s highly anticipated fourth album, NOENEMIES, is their most ambitious and sophisticated statement to date. NOENEMIES is a body of songs that speaks to the urgency of the current social movement. Each of the tracks on NOENEMIES serves as a powerful, poignant new anthem, packed with surprises both subtle and grand. Taken as a whole, the album is enormous in breadth and electrically charged. When Flobots first catapulted onto the global scene in 2008 with their platinum single ‘Handlebars,’ it was the fastest charting song debut by a new artist in 10 years. Released during the frenzy of that year’ s election, the band’ s call to envision “another America” resonated with a generation experiencing a sense of profound political and social awakening. Now, a decade later, amidst a nation taking to the streets, Flobot’s are delivering a powerful new batch of protest songs to a new generation.
