SAMURAI SHOTGUN AT BURRO BAR

Posted:

It’s refreshing when an outfit discards self-conscious stage presence and overproduction and just plays loud, energetic music in about any joint on the power grid. Combining loose, expressive guitar riffs, a hip-hop vocal approach and turntable stylings, Samurai Shotgun’s sound is reminiscent of turn-of-the-century acts like early Deftones, Lostprophets and Rage Against the Machine. It’s pure creativity with limited resources – DIY music at its best, a bridge between rap and thrash that works because Samurai isn’t trying too hard to sound like either. They’re just having fun.
