Crown City Rockers The Day After Forever
There’s one major problem with Crown City Rockers’ The Day After Forever—it should have dropped at the beginning of summer. The Bay Area group’s third full-length is full of quality grooves perfect for backyard barbecues and sunny summer parties. Translating their stellar live show into song, “Break” sets things off with its raucous, crashing cymbals and commanding chorus. An eclectic mix of feel-good hip-hop, “Soul” pays tribute to soul legends over Kat O1O’s funky synths and Headnodic’s upright bass, while “Kiss,” an uptempo disco-funk jam, is guaranteed to make girlies wiggle their backsides. CCR is often called a Cali version of The Roots, but The Day After Forever proves that they are way funkier than that.
