New Mixtape: Sonny Shotz (Member of The King’s Dead) – Danel Exodus: Truths of Creation

New Mixtape: Sonny Shotz (Member of The King's Dead) - Daniel Exodus: Truths of Creation

As you probably all know, I’ve always pushed The Dean’s List aka The King’s Dead for the last five years or so … I think their sound is so fresh & I was lucky enough to see them with Chadcad at Bucknell University … For a number of reasons, though, they haven’t really blown up or gone mainstream … One reason is that it seems they don’t really care much about their fame …

In  my opinion, changing the name of the group was the first bad idea … Any pseudo-fans of The Dean’s List would surely be lost once they could no longer find the group’s material anymore … Now, Sonny Shotz (the lead man for the group) has released his own solo album, Danel Exodus: Truths of Creation … From the name itself, you can obviously infer he’s taken on a much more religious and spiritual tone and style for his music … He’s obviously very passionate about this work, though. Check out what he had to say on his twitter page before the album’s release:

“I thank God it feels good to look in the mirror and say i did it 1,000% my way. There was no formula, calculated party record, or strategic features… Just me, information, and art. Hate it or love it. It’s not what you’re used to but that never stopped me.”

I haven’t listened to this yet, but I’ve always loved any material this group has put out … If you’re looking for something different, give it a shot … Try to not let the style of the album sway you:
