Download: Rockwell Knuckles' New CD, Choose Your Own Adventure

Posted By on Tue, Mar 16, 2010 at 4:49 PM

You gotta love the trend of local rappers making "albums" instead of "mixtapes."

The words have basically become synonymous at this point but there are still a few important distinctions. Mixtapes, IMHO, are a way to showcase other artists in the clique and whet the fans' appetites for the full-length. Albums, on the other hand, are cohesive artistic statements with a dozen or so carefully selected tracks. You know, the kind of thing people might actually pay money for.

Earlier this week Tef Poe released a full-length LP and now Rockwell Knuckles debuts the third -- and arguably best -- recording of his career via The Smoking Section. Check it:

Rockwell fans will find a few songs they've already familiar with -- his smokin' singles "Shooting Star" and "Government Name" -- and a few more he's been performing live lately ("No Sympathy" and "Center of Attention") but really there's a whole heap of unreleased material here.

I haven't listened to the whole thing yet so I'll reserve judgment until I've had time to give it a few spins. You should do the same. Oh, and peep Rockwell, Tef and the rest of The Force at SXSTL in Austin
