A few weeks back, I posted a couple of videos from local rap/rock band Formula412. The five-piece -- guitar, bass, keys, drums and vocals -- is releasing its second full-length, Reality Show, tomorrow night at Mr. Small's Theater in Millvale.
Reality Show is an aggressive mix of politically conscious lyrics, Pittsburgh namechecking, and tight rock beats; smooth but not too polished, Formula412 bridges the gap between the swagger of mainstream rap and the refined lyricism of indie hip hop. Stream the album here; check out info on tickets here.
