Here are Two Can’t Miss Performances on Opposite Sides of the Musical Spectra, at Gov Ball 2021

Read Time:2 Minute, 23 Second

On Friday, between all of the big names like Billie Eilish, Portugal The Man, and Rufus Du Sol, one would be quick to miss the subtle pairing of two names. Freddie Gibbs & The Alchemist. Sounds like a fun rock band right? But the combination of these two live means an actual live performance of one of the best rap albums of 2020. “Alfredo”.

like the dish “Alfredo”, the songs are filling, decadent and rich in quality as The Alchemist gives some of the darkest, lightest, but all hypnotic beats to connect to the backdrop of Freddie Gibbs and his vivid drug talk, gang talk and the subtle rhymes that show his very high intellect..

Freddie is kind of hard. Kind of.

Anybody who hasn’t heard Alfredo and is a rap fan will immediately from the start of the album get immersed in the world of “Alfredo” and the incredible cohesion these two put together. One of the Top 10, arguably Top 5 rap albums of that year, this collaboration on the live stage can’t be missed. It’s a once in a lifetime kind of thing. (Oh and they might throw some “fetti” while they’re at it. Shout out to Curren$y.)

On the completely other side of the festival on Sunday; have you heard of the “100 gecs” and their album “1000 gecs”? this electronic/rock/2006 YouTube era aesthete? If you haven’t you live in a world of bliss, if you have than you know that if you’re going to be in the same vicinity as these aliens you have to go see them and expect nothing outside of having your expectations broken.

Trippy visuals and a sound unusual.

Have you listened to “1000 Gecs”? Can’t make sense of it? Why is it so different yet somehow pleasurable? No one is doing what 100 gecs is doing and youll be surprised at how many people are really in to this hyperpop to the extreme. Just listen to the first and last track of the album. It has no indication of what the meat of the album is like.

If we are talking engaged crowds, than 100 gecs will have the top 10 engaged crowds of the festival. Also the top 1 of the weirdest crowds of the festival. The more you learn about 100 gecs the more you have questions, the more you have questions the more confusing it all is and because of that you might feel elated, confused but definitely weird after their show. In a good way?

You hear this and don’t think they’re aliens?

I love the euphoric high of finding a new artist, song, or album that does something different for the world of music. Out of Brooklyn, NY, I listen to a wide range of music, from Rock and Pop, with a special interest in Electronic, Hip-Hop and Rap. I “go down the rabbit hole” and explore new music on Spotify and Soundcloud finding those tracks, artists and albums that are worth talking about. I have a weekly updated themed mixtape meant to be played through, co-host a podcast, and have a weekly album review on Insta : flow.page/maxedocr
