This Song: Run the Jewels // Belcurve

Posted by on Nov 30, 2016

This week we talk to two very different groups about partnerships and the inspirations that guide their voices.  First we hear from El-P and Killer Mike from the hip hop collaboration known as Run the Jewels. The two rappers start out talking about early influences (Prince’s “Beautiful Ones” and Ice-T’s “6 In The Morning”)  and end up expressing their love and respect for Southern Rock, The Clash, Outlaw Country and early hip hop and rap. Next, Sarah Castro and Matt Parmenter of the Austin-based Belcurve explain how their collaborations steer clear of the ordinary and how Kathleen EdwardsPJ Harvey and Tom Waits helped them create their shared musical vocabulary.
