Angel Haze - No Bueno (Hype 357)


For those of you who happen to be in Chicago for this year's Lollapalooza, here is one pick for Sunday afternoon: Angel Haze, a 22-year-old female MC out of Detroit, Michigan.  This talented young lady certainly does not hold back in her hard-hitting lyrics.

Incidentally, highlights from the first two days at Lollapalooza have included an upbeat Atlas Genius, a very much on-form New Order (who played songs including Blue Monday--of course--as well as Joy Division classics like Transmission and Love Will Tear Us Apart), and a really solid, lively, satisfyingly-enthusiastic performance to end the evening in style by Mumford and Sons.

Tomorrow (Sunday) we shall discover whether The Cure still have it, after Angel Haze hits everyone with some raw words.  Also look out for Alt-J, Vampire Weekend, and Grizzly Bear, although you will struggle to see both of the last two given the logistics.
