When compiling our 2008 year end lists last year, we clumsily overlooked and left ReCollect, the ReMINDers' stellar debut, off our list. Our bad. Really. The album is an excellent collection of head-nodding organic hip-hop reminiscent of the Fugees circa 1996. We've just learned that the duo, comprised of Big Samir and Aja Black (who is hands down the best female MC out of Colorado), has been tapped to offer up the lead single for the upcoming film, Bilal's Stand. The chosen song, "Outside My Window," is featured on ReCollect and a video was filmed for the track last month. Check out the goodness after the jump.
Keep Westword Free... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Denver with no paywalls.
