B. Hamilton — "Gold Tooth" (Parentz Remix)

Remixes are normally a maximalist paradise — add drums, add reverb, add distortion. Rarely does one find a remix that strips a track down to its bare essential (that particular job is typically taken up by the lead singer and an acoustic guitar). East Bay future-pop producer Parentz, however, succeeds in turning "Gold Tooth" — one of the stand-out tracks from Oakland-based B. Hamilton's Everything I Own Is Broken LP — into a plaintive, string anchored track in this new remix. Instead of studio tricks, Parentz injects a healthy dose of emotion to the song by placing rise and fall [...]

B. Hamilton – ‘Everything I Own is Broken’

Everything I Own is Broken by B. Hamilton Seemingly out of left field (or rather, the East Bay) comes B. Hamilton, conceptualized by Ryan Christopher Parks. For the most part, this is raw rock and roll, with throaty, angry lines that are somewhat therapeutic. Overall, Everything I Own is Broken an honest and exceptional album, all the way through the very last few songs. Everything I Own is Broken was self-released last month as a free download, and according to Parks was recorded "around Oakland in the Summer, the Winter, and the Fall. Fuck Spring." True, the album was very [...]
