new new orleans soundz A1: THE HONORABLE SOUTH

The Honorable South
Blending electronica with punk, rock, soul , and elements of hip hop, creating a sound that is both tribal, meditative, and dirty south.

If you are a music listener who prefers candy sweet vocals and love story happy time lyrics then The Honorable South is not for you. This is raw emotion layed bare over heavy felt beats and chords.

The Honorable South is lead vocalist/song writer Charm Baker and guitarist/producer Matthew Rosenbeck. The two collaborate with local musicians from time to time but don't require all the usual bells and whistles to put on an interestingly kick ass live show.

Theres a distinctly unique sound to their debut EP entitled "Dirty in the Light", an unapologetic glimpse into the shadows of the New Orleans music scene.
(available on Itunes & CdBaby)

  1. I am really digging this. No lie. This is really good. I love coming across something by accident and being blown away. "Boom Bat" had my jaw dragging the ground. The same with "Pressure". Keep pushing your sound to the limits. I wish our people would get back to pushing music to the edge and creating new sounds. The days of Ornette Coleman, John Coltrane, and even Public Enemy seem so far away. As a experimental music fan, I greatly appreciated what you are doing. Keep up the good work. Much respect.
