Normally, when you hear Sirens, it means something bad either has happened or is about to happen. Thankfully, veteran trio Slum Village buck that trend with their latest effort. Although their latest offering is entitled Sirens, the beat from SV member Young RJ does not include any wailing horns. Instead he cooks up a dusty, ominous instrumental that sets the stage for hardened verses from fellow villagers T3 and Illa J. While this record did not make the cut for the crew’s upcoming Evolution LP, fans should not worry. There will be plenty more where this came from on the forthcoming project, including guest appearances by the likes of DJ Jazzy Jeff, Raheem DeVaughn and Blu.
