Besatree's release 'Movement' is a masterpiece. Consider it a 36 chapter existential novel that deals with alien inter-zones, paper craft, hobo punks, and camaraderie set to melodic keyboards and beats that at times sound as if an atari video music player found itself into a silent film. Like a novel, 'Movement' is to be devoured from beginning to end to appreciate the fully fleshed out world that you will no doubt be glad to have visited. Besatree plays with so many genres here that it's best to use the genre he self styled: Slop-Hop. Fans of acoustic punk, hip-hop, garage rock, slam poetry, etc. will want to check this out and keep an eye on this machine. Since 2008 he's dropped four full lengths and one EP, gigging throughout the I.E. and L.A. Besatree and K Serious are playing w/ Crown Royale at the Airliner on 2/11 (http://besatree.com/main/tickets/) All releases are downloadable from the main page. I hope ya'll get a chance to check 'em out.
