Rebel Tongue is made up of a conscious lyricist, live instrumentation and enough rhythm to make you rock back and forth for days. On Movin On, the act's debut, the players come together under the umbrella of funk and a new-age fusion of hip-hop and neo-soul. They do a great job of blending the warm vocals of Azma Holiday with a tightly produced live-band sound. On the title track, you can feel a jazz influence, as well as a conscious-spoken-word trend in Holiday's verses. Movin On is an easy listen all the way through, gathering elements of jazz and neo-funk in a lovely seven-track effort more than worthy of repeated listens.
