Buoyant Sea - NitetrotterTV Session

 Text and Video by Nathan Gregory - January 25, 2013

 A cold nite in Chicago with one of the first snows of the new year and we decide to go to the warmest place in the city, The infamous Tropic Goth nite at the Empty Bottle with Elliott Reed, Nonnie Parry and Buoyant Sea. The show was packed very well for a cold nite and Buoyant Sea stole the show. Driven from a hard drum beat and the piercing sounds of his electric mandolin, Buoyant Sea's weird style had the floor moving. Driving pop songs with dark lyrics and chugging bass make for a danceable tune. It was most definitely a fun party for whatever Tropic Goth maybe. Excited to hear more of Buoyant Sea in 2013 or at least some cool haircuts.

 Not everyone across the US has had the chance to check out Gangsta Love like that have with his alter ego Hurricanes of Love. Both the amazing works of mountain man Frank Hurricane. The holiest man on the planet. The moving live show of Hurricanes of Love that bring joy and fun to all eyes and ears who observe, can only imagine the fun that a Gangsta Love show would possess. The holy brother could rap who knew? We caught frank awhile ago while he was visiting Chicago. We recorded this secret session in Logan Square while we were also lucky enough to have 99¢ lay down some of his sick beats for Frank to rhyme over.  Check out his new cassette out on Gnar Tapes. Get high for a brother and dig this sick new session of 2013, Gangsta Love featuring 99¢.

Check out how we first heard about Gangsta Love doing this commercial for the best pizza spot in Jamaica Plain, MA called Same Old Place.
