Review: Renegade Brass Band – Totems

The rookery of talent that is Renegade Brass Band comes back with Totems, an album that solidifies their glitch-based hip hop into a sandstone-like foundation. No, actually, that’s a lie. It looks solid. It seems to be a waterproof barrier, but come closer and the porous surface is highly permeable; the wear and tear of brass instruments has interconnected all pores.
