🎵 of the Month: Flobots - NOENEMIES

Flobots - NOENEMIES

Flobots have created some of my favorite “protest songs” including White Flag Warrior, Stand Up, and Handlebars. Naturally, I wanted to check out their latest offering.

Flobots is MCs Brer Rabbit and Johnny 5, along with a host of musicians & guests. I really appreciate the electric violin, which frequently shows up in various tracks. Songs tend to blend hip-hop, singalong, and political sensibilities. This album doesn’t disappoint. You’ll find yourself singing the choruses, headbanging to the raps, and probably looking up references in the lyrics.

Favorite Tracks:

  • 5: Quarantine
  • 6: American Dreams
  • 7: Rattle the Cage
  • 12: Voices of the Dead
  • 14: Related
  • 16: Sleeping Giant

I think part of the joy of 🚲 is that it forces you to be mindful and present in the moment.

(Sadly this is because you are constantly aware of your surroundings to help ensure you don’t get murdert.)

(Note: as a “radical reformer” of the anabaptist and Mennonite variety, I am not evangelical, but I still found this conversation to be useful.)
