Thursday MP3s: Boogie Monsters

This week, readers, the musical offering is an overlooked and underrated rap album: “Riders of the Storm: The Underwater Album” (1994) by Boogie Monsters. (Click on the link to download a ZIP file.)

I think you’ll enjoy the biblical imagery of “Mark of the Beast,” the laid-back beats and basslines, and the overall slightly “psychedelic” feel of this album. Boogie Monsters showed a lot of promise; this was a really strong debut album. Unfortunately, their 1997 follow-up “God Sound” was just abysmal, and that sophomore effort turned out to be their final release. Boogie Monsters now, sadly, languish in almost total obscurity.
