You may have enjoyed True Neutral Crew’s music but have been curious about what they’re like in a live setting. Here’s the perfect way to find out, a 20-minute short film that is the group displaying themselves on stage in a way that is sure to bring you and everyone else to see them when they play near you. The people you’ll see and hear in this include Margot Padilla (I.E.), Signor Benedict The Moor, and Daveed Diggs of clipping., all of which represent the hip-hop perspective of the group. The musical creations are made by Brian Kinsman, Boo Hiss, and tik///tik. Now that you know, get to know them a bit more.
What does evil mean? Is evil an easy path towards death and if so, what to make of artists like Miles Davis and Black Sabbath who called their albums Live Evil? Maybe there is no connection, but artists like Black Pus, True Neutral Crew, Signor Benedick The Moor, diss1, Sissy Cobb, ParallaxScroll, Dreamcrusher, and more have contributed a song to a new Deathbomb Arc compilation album called EVIL. All contributors were asked to simply do a song about evil, in whatever way they felt like doing. All proceeds from the sales of this album will be donated to Rolling Jubilee, an anti-debt charity.

How crazy can True Neutral Crew get? This crazy. The video for “I Guess” may be minimal in its approach but it offers maximum pleasure, if you allow yourself to absorb that much from the visuals.
True Neutral is a group featuring Brian Kinsman of Foot Village on drums, Margot Padilla of I.E. fame on electronics and wizardry, and clipping.’s Daveed Diggs sharing vocal duties with Kinsman and Padilla. If you are familiar with any of the projects these three have done, then you might be wondering if this is a beautiful union or a heavenly means of chaos. It’s both, and they’re showing it off with a 3-song EP called #MONSANTO, which also contains a bonus remix of the title track. Could you call this “alternative hip-hop”? For some portions, sure. Could you call this indie electro pop? You could. Would you want to call this noisy pop bop? Whatever you want dude or dudette, whatever you want, but again, if you are at all familiar with clipping., I.E., and/or Foot Village, blend that up in a sauce and see how it sounds/tastes. #MONSANTO is the cause.
