If you haven’t seen Curly Castro rock a show in Philadelphia and beyond this year, you obviously are holed up in the crib freebasin’ Ambien–sitting and sleeping!

“One of the best hip hop releases of the year”–Austrailian hip hop mag SCENE.  Skip ahead to pg 39

“If you enjoy a listen that pushes the envelope as Hip Hop continues to evolve, then what Zilla Rocca and Douglas Martin have offered up is right up your alley.”–Bloggerhouse

In other Shadowboxer news, we’ll be wrapping up the video shoot for “High Noon” tomorrow with Jimmy Giambrone of Dangerous In Public.  If you’re a fan of seedy motels, vicious sex vixens in lingerie with a score to settle, and grown men getting shoved into trunks, this one’s a winner!  Stay Tuned

You can stream The Slow Twilight along with the single “Bottomfeeders (Small Professor Remix)” from the upcoming Broken Clocks EP here
