It’s 2016. Technology (though effective for a while) consumes us. For better or for worse, it’s justifiably the blame for guiding much of our train of thought. And actions. And attention. To some degree, most non-senior citizens will agree. Right? But memories will forever remain precious and hind site will always be 20/20 – in most cases.
With that being said, Kentucky wordsmith Allen Poe teamed up with producer/emcee Denmark Vessey to paint his short, nostalgic canvas and create “Memory”. It’s beautiful and poetically complex. Those familiar with Denmark‘s soundscapes and rhymes shouldn’t be too surprised by Poe‘s execution here. The single’s content is not as complex as, say, an MF DOOM or Dr. Octagon record, but you may have to actually listen to the words and piece together whatever forms naturally. A bit more refreshing than the mindless, spoon-fed doses of material we’re offered on most radio today.
Poe’s love for poetry is undeniable to the average listener. “Memory” is a cool grey dart, introspective and executed perfectly. A pinball loosely bouncing through memory, at the end of the run leaving listeners reminded how important each moment is. Be present.
That’s enough out of us, enjoy the record. One love:
