Talkin’ Sporty : Times Neue Roman

“Look at the way, look at the way, look at the way that I rock, rock…” About a week and a half ago I got invited to the brand new EP release party for Toronto’s very own Times Neue Roman. A zany fusion of sounds that can only be best described as nintendo-hiphop-punk-rap, Talkin’ Sporty makes me feel like I was playing Super Mario on 3D with some insane light show… on SHROOMS. Lol. Even better than listening to the album on my Panasonic RP HTX7’s? Times Neue Roman LIVE. Consisting of producer extraordinaire, Alexander The, and Vancouver native award winning poet Arowbe — these two make a bad ass duo.

Alexander The, or JR, as I’ve known him, I’ve written about sometime ago, when I attended an MTV debut of his other musical group, Styrofoam Ones. I was so confused between the two bands before because I had no idea JR was rollin’ with two, but after having heard the both of them, it’s evident that JR has a lotta fun being able to play with different sounds between the separate vibes of his two groups. The man is pure and utter brilliance.

Arowbe I came across a minute and a half ago, at the Kapisanan Centre one random day. We chopped it up over Vancouverite mutual understandings while playing Super Nintendo. He’s a solid dude with good vibes all around, and makes a killing on the mic. He was hoppin’ all OVER the place during the concert which made the show non-stop hype. I look forward to hearing more of his work in the coming future of their inevitable rise and success.

You can check out Talkin’ Sporty and find out more about Times Neue Roman HERE. Keep your ears perked for word on future shows because if you’re not convinced by this EP, then surely you will be charmed by their live shows… and get reeaaallly sweaty. Lol.
