On this week’s My Favorite Album, host Jeremy Dylan is joined by half of Sydney’s premiere hip-hop-blues-rock band She Rex - MC Nikkita Rast and drummer Tash Adams - for a chat about the album that served as their sonic inspiration - 2009’s “BlakRoc”, that saw the Black Keys joined by an assortment of hip-hop MCs.
They break down tracks “Ain’t Nothing Like You (Hoochie Coo)” and “What You Do to Me” and along the way, talk about how and why this album succeeds in mixing rap and rock when so many have failed, off-topic guest verses, contrasting vocal styles within a track and how She Rex have tried to carry on the organic music-making method of the LP in their own music.
