Posted 5 years, 8 months, 3 weeks, 5 days, 3 hours, 21 minutes ago

SURPRISE! CunninLynguists haved teamed up with fellow indie hip-hop mainstays The Grouch & Eligh (G&E) to bring you The Winterfire EP. The release is now available via the usual outlets digital outlets as well being available for free via Bandcamp.

After a banner year for both outfits, G&E and CunninLynguists wanted to thank fans with new music and a potent side-project. This surprise EP is sure to set the underground on fire with contrasting styles over 5 tracks of classic Kno production. The Winterfire burns brightly, with organic sounds such as the syncopated flows and driving storytelling on “The Gas Station Attendant.” With many cult-championed songs about intimacy in each group’s catalog, EP opener “Fire In Her Eyes” builds upon that repertoire, while time is analyzed in “100 Years” to name a few.

Winterfire literally sets the stage for the annual How The Grouch Stole Christmas Tour beginning December 4 in Santa Cruz, California. This year’s series of West Coast dates will feature Grouch & Eligh along with CunninLynguists & DJ Abilities as well as some very special guests in each city. CD copies of the new EP will be available on tour in exchange for canned goods intended to be donated to food kitchens in time for the holidays. Winterfire will also released on limited edition vinyl, with pre-orders beginning November 18. Brothers in arms, G & E + CunninLynguists have come together in 2014 with an EP, a tour and a common cause.
