DoomtreeThe first “official” album by the entire Minneapolis, MN crew Doomtree is now in stores.

Plus guest appearances from I Self Divine (Micranots) and Crescent Moon.

If you are unfamiliar with Doomtree:

“Doomtree is a record label. Doomtree is a rap crew. Doomtree is a family. Over the past five years Doomtree has become one of the most highly regarded hip-hop collectives in the Midwest, thanks to innovative recordings, explosive live shows, and tireless work ethic. By combining the blueprint of hip hop with the DIY ethos of punk and a slew of disparate artistic and musical influences, Doomtree has won the favor of a broad range of audiences, as likely to find fans at indie rock shows as at rap shows or basement dance parties. In the past several years the collective has grown to include the lyrical and production talents of more than a dozen core members. The members of Doomtree come from a wide variety of backgrounds and musical interests, but join together to create some of the most forward-thinking beats and rhymes this side of 1987.”

Grab the CD from the Strange Famous Records Store right now, digital download should be available later this week.
