BLKHRTS (FOE, Karma and Yonnas Abraham): Move over. It's time for the big takeover.
Brace yourself: Looks like the word is out on BLKHRTS. After an enviable co-sign from Jeff Weiss -- an extremely well-regarded West Coast blogger who also writes for the Los Angeles Times -- on the LA Times blog in advance of its show last night at that city's famed Low End Theory, followed by another favorable post-show nod from him this morning on Twitter ("So BLK HRTS are basically everything I hoped that Death Grips would be," and "BLK HRTS: because art rap deserved it's M.O.P."), BLKHRTS are off to a good start in building the kind of buzz that could easily catapult the group into something far beyond a local phenomenon. Click through for an excerpt of the blog item.

Jeff Weiss via LA Times blog: "Imagine the gladioluses that fans would drop at Morrissey's feet, only now getting bashed by lead pipes of M.O.P. Picture a trio of vowel-averse velociraptors rapping as if the phrase "he who makes a beast of himself, gets rid of the pain being a man" was tattoed on their foreheads."

Looks like there might have been more to that BLKHRTS blessing ceremony than we all thought. The BLKHRTS tour continues tonight in Phoenix.

Great band! Thank you Mr. Herrera for turning me on to them.sEAN.


Like Sheep being thrown into the lions den. THE BLK HRTS removed the layer of wool, and spun a thread of maniacal, heart stopping, vein popping music, that blanketed the entire room with sweat dripping bodies that convulsed in dreary light of the brown clouded moon. Words spit forth like buck shots killing any false notion that anything good could ever come from a place like Denver. the first spike to the vein, or a hit off the pipe. the wolves were hooked and the once nervous unknowing BLK HRTS left in an instance riding off into the night, leaving only fiends and believers in the rearview mirror.
