just arrived in albuquerque, new mexico to get started on this big mural project with Chris Stain and Jacque Fragua...having an amazingly (3rd)eyeopening & inspiring time building with the local artists. my host Jaque and i were chilling, listening to music and this song came up...i can't believe that i've been sleeping on ALOE BLACC! well, better late than never, i'm definitely one of his new fans. and not surprisingly, he comes from one of my favorite record labels, Stones Throw.
i looked him up and found out that “My purpose for music is positive social change,” says Orange County, California native Aloe Blacc. “Even if the music itself does not explicitly express anything that may signify positive social change, the product of the music will.”
Check out a recent interview with him for Centric TV about his new album that just recently dropped. Go to stonesthrow to see his Fall tour dates and download one of the tracks from his new album, GOOD THINGS.subCentric //Aloe Blacc Pt. 1 from Centric TV on Vimeo.
