I might be running out of superlatives to offer to The Outfit, TX. We write about a lot of new music at this site, but it’s rare when an album stays on my iPod into the next season. Their Starships and Rockets record remains in semi-permanent rotation, a combination of screw music, swanging, and outer space funk. It’s hard as helmet hair on an 80s soap opera star. You should also read Shea Serrano’s piece on the group for MTV Hive.
Their latest cut, “My Street” is taken from the Starships sessions, but was cut for unknown reasons. This could’ve been an anthem and will be an anthem, at least for me and Shea. While I type, I’m outside screaming “My Street” at the Junior high kids in PE class. They’re jealous because suddenly my side of the block has transformed into something resembling the photo above: there are old-schools, delectable fried foods, beautiful women, boxing and football games. It’s a pretty good deal. Salute these gentleman. This track originally was released on Dave Luxe’s Drive Slow Homie, Volume 6, which you want, because you do.
