A little bit funky, a little bit groovy, and all-around just firme, it’s hard not to dance when you’ve got all this sunshine coming through your speakers. Chicano Batman comes to Portland’s Star Theater on Feb. 24.
Bite into this exclusive premiere of Banana Stand Media’s latest “Unpeeled” session, featuring Portland’s forward-thinking psychedelic hip hop artist Maze Koroma performing “Electronic” off his 2016 release Osiris. Sitting at the edge of his bed and decked out in Life Aquatic-style red beanie and flannel steeze, Koroma flows effortlessly about the woes of crushing on someone online without having a rapport IRL, as his roommate Eric Fury runs samples in the background. Just days after filming this Unpeeled session last month, Koroma dropped another brand new EP, It’s Complicated, It’s All Happening So Fast, Even Though I Can’t Keep Up With You, You’ll Always Be My Sunshine, or ‘TrackList’ for short, produced by Neill Von Tally with contributions from Christina Cano, Martell Webster, Ripley Snell, Bryce Lang and The Last Artful, Dodgr – grab a copy digitally or on cassette out on Eyrst.
