Whether their name is a reference to boxer Joe Louis or the city of St. Louis (although they’re based in New Jersey), or both, everything you really need to know about St. Joe Louis is contained in their DJBooth debut single Good Morning. St. Joe, consisting of group members Michael Cardigan, Elete and Tommy Chase, have been grinding on the underground for a minute, but Good Morning was the first I’d heard from them, and after my fifth consecutive listen I was hooked. Produced by Elete, Good Morning centers around a driving piano line and distorted guitars, a fittingly energetic backdrop the trio use to drop rhymes with the eye-opening power of three espressos (unlike Kanye’s Good Morning, which was more like a lullaby). Ladies and gentlemen, I think we’ve found a new morning anthem. Good Morning is off their upcoming project 30,000 Feet and Rising, which currently has no set release date. Stay tuned for more from the up-and-coming crew.
