Riding the slow-boiling success of their critically acclaimed, summer 2009 Slow Twilight LP, the 5 O’CLOCK SHADOWBOXERS (Zilla Rocca & Douglas Martin) have just opened the floodgates on the follow-up BROKEN CLOCKS EP, available now on Bandcamp and coming soon on iTunes and more. Featuring some new tracks and power-packed remixes from Small Professor, Zilla Rocca, Nex Millen plus an especially amazing rendition from EGON BRAINPARTS of Bossasaurus, the project also features cameos from ELUCID, Alex Ludovico, Curly Castro, Jawnzap 7, Has-Lo and Nico the Beast.
Though much shorter and of a more conventional, gritty east coast feel, the Broken Clocks EP is much more than your usual, fragmented remix/ B-side project. Even the recycled concepts are such potent emulations of their original versions that they become all new songs in their own, making the release a concentrated triple-shot of everything that makes the Slow Twilight LP so exceptional: layered progressive-minded production, sharp conceptionally-fluid lyricism, and the noir-ish atmosphere previously uncharted by any other indie hip-hop act.
