It’s always cool to kick off the new year with some fresh music. It’s even better when it’s some local boys! Lifted Mindz are a five man, hip hop crew that I first heard during a break of the Orange Bowl just two days ago and they are very, very wonderful.

The tune below (“Dora Hade”) lays down a nice, thick groove that is reminiscent of early De la Soul. Their message, like Hemingway, is honest, true and strong…a movable feast, if you will, for stream of consciousness expression.

What a great way to start off 2013!

Here is a link to download their music.
