new album: death or evolution

This world is what we’ve made it — the devastation of our potential; destruction and hope dichotomized, codependent; a simple race of confused complexities placating chaos only to create more. What’s done has been so with no revisions to be written, and in our narrative, destruction looms.

The idea of evolution has been abandoned in favor of dominance. We conquered the food chain behind a consciousness that set us remarkably apart from other beasts. We claimed the world as our dominion and built civilizations, each one grander than before, but never wiser. We waged wars against our planet and fellow man, perpetually falling into the same internecine traps, failing to see that we abandoned a higher being for a life we cannot sustain.

This project examines mankind from nature to nurture and the cultures that each beget. We have our choices to own and nothing else. Every decision has consequence, often far beyond our comprehension. There’s no excuse for what we’ve done and noone to blame but ourselves. It takes an entire tribe, but either we evolve, totally, to reevaluate the gift of consciousness, or we die, completely, so the Earth might breathe again. There is no middle ground, just the wasted lands we continue to create. Make your choice.

Guava Pulp Live Video

This spring, we played an in-store show at All Access Hip Hop in San Diego. It was a loose format of revolving microphones and emcees that went on for three hours as people filtered in and out of the store. At one point, Headtrip suggested we shoot a live video while we were there.  Here’s proof that we can go horse in a record store and not break anything. Directed by Mike Petrow. Guava Pulp produced by Samurai Banana from Gruff Lion featuring LT Headtrip.
