Moosh & Twist
One of our favorite local hip-hop duos, Moosh & Twist recently released their new mixtape for free, Back To The Basement. From start to finsh, it’s the duo’s best work so far and one of the highlights on the record is the song “Top Of The World,” an inspiring tune about the duo’s rise. Moosh & Twist filmed a video for the song at the Philadelphia School – where Moosh & Twist met as first graders. Download the song (or the full album) and watch the video below.Continue reading
Last week, the Philly hip-hop duo Moosh & Twist released their excellent new mixtape Back To The Basement that you can download here. To go along with it, there’s a new video for one of the new songs, the anthemic “Top Of The World.” The video was filmed with a classroom of adorable elementary school kids at the Philadelphia School (at 25th and Lombard in Center City, Philadelphia), which is where Moosh & Twist met in 1st grade. Watch the video below, and go here for a close behind-the-scenes look at the day Moosh & Twist went back to their former school.
We’re not going to beat around the turntable here – the new Moosh & Twist song & video “This High,” is just great. It’s an earworm singalong that swings for the pop music fences and homers. Moosh’s raps continue to tighten up and focus and there’s musical depth on the song that signals impressive, continued growth. But when that hook comes, look out: Twist brings the chorus home alongside a soaring guitar solo that heightens the sentiment of the lyrics: “I don’t want to come back down from this high.” Update: John Vettese says any resemblance between “This High” and this song is okay with him.
The band is currently on their Up To No Good Tour and play Union Transfer on Friday, February 15th. Last time the band was in town, their show at the Church got cut short due to the fire alarm being pulled and the club having to empty out, so I imagine Moosh & Twist will be particularly excited to get back in front of their hometown fans.
