Broken Tongues

Vocal Chords
Self-released

When the fusion of hip-hop and rock was first conceived, it was meant to amplify the respective appeal of each style of music. Yet the hybrid has consistently resulted in prosaic lyrics and inferior beats. Broken Tongues' debut does nothing to buck that trend. Worse, the duo delves into a subgenre of rap rock that is seemingly shameless: suburban rap, an excessively moronic strain of commercial hip-hop in which generic bro-dawgs convey their love for weed, booze and good friends. Though there are a few lively cuts, such as "Dimes in Dollar Stores," the majority of the disc consists of repetitive melodies stuffed with cliché rhymes of the trying-to-get-paid and trying-to-get-laid variety. Catchy? Yes. Refreshingly original? No.
