Album Spotlight: Bremelanotide by The Grammar Club
There are some artists that are absolutely amazing on their own, but sometimes, when they come together they can end up equalling something bigger than what they can do individually. This is as true in Nerdcore as in any other genre of music. Several very talented solo artists came together to create one of the best and most accesible albums in nerdcore hip hop. That album is Bremelanotide and that group of artists is known as The Grammar Club.
My Gay Shirt kicks off the latter half of the album, with another upbeat tune about the pros and cons of having a particularly “gay” shirt. Beefy takes up duty on the verses while Shael ably sings the chorus “cause everyone loves me in my gayest shirt.”We come off that song to a slower song about a more depressing topic, having to go through college. Post-Collegiate Shuffle is the anthem to those moments when you just don’t see the point in college. Alternate Ending, the final track on the album is also a serious sounding song (and also my favorite track on the album), even with shael riley providing his unique brand of odd lyrics in his verse, the words really fit and the skill he has in his voice carries a lot of weight to the words as well. Beefy also adds a lot to the song with his verse. The ending is sung beautifully by Shael Riley and is a perfect close to a phenomenal album.
So with that the album is over. Bremelanotide is inescapably catchy and wonderfully done in every respect. It also covers a wide range of style and skill by several amazing artists. The lyrics are intricate and entertaining, the music is downright catchy and the production value is through the roof. I highly recommend this album to anyone who has yet to hear any nerdcore hip hop yet, as this is definitely a great place to start. And as with all the other wonderful music I have had the opportunity to show you, this album is 100% free to download at thegrammarclub.com under the “media” section of the website.
As always, definitely let me know what you think of the album in the comments!
