brothers hand mirror is a rapper and dj project with oscar thorn from oscar + martin and cougar flashy doing much good beats and rapps together. you guys should like it. the facebook has pictures of us and info and shit and the myspace is more or less just for better listening.

we have one e.p. out sort of-ish out right now, it's a one night recording session using nothing but 6 track tape loops and vocal rapping styles.

Sounds a bit like Anti-Pop Consortium.

Is that a real American accent?

CF  said about 3 years ago:

thanks alot, oscar's process of beat making is very careful, pure and fun and i think that comes across.

anonymous  said about 3 years ago:

sounds good, can't make it tonight but i'm sure there will be more shows.


CF  said about 3 years ago:

so i did my own first self produced rapp track, if anybody on hear here's and also makes sounds or beats to fuck with i'd really like to work with other people, my beat making skills are super super rudimentary. i did this whole track with my mouth, save for one blip sound in the second section.

Sounds pretty good, dudes.

DO IT DO IT DO IT DO IT.


kelele  said about 3 years ago:

Looks v good. Well done.


CF  said about 3 years ago:

thanks so much dudes! we have only just made the bandcamp today but later tonight i plan to upload our first e.p. we did a few months ago, just for listening not for free cause we made a limited run of two hundred handmade copies and people might feel cheated if they paid and the whole internet gets them for freez later.

it's really nice to have such a nice response, i kind of expected to get white boys rapping hate.


untold/animals  said about 3 years ago:

Oh wait a minute... YOU'RE WHITE?!?!?!?


CF  said about 3 years ago:

ha ha. that actually happens sometimes, but not like heeeeaps, but that's only thanks to 8-Mile.


untold/animals  said about 3 years ago:

I'm still shaking.


Jerm  said about 3 years ago:

Flow is sounding really good Grant. Really liked the Sun one at the Workers show awhile back, so it's nice to have a version to carry round.


CF  said about 2 years ago:

we released a free e.p. of four songs including a tweet cover!
