4.0 excellentJim | October 8th 08

The Herd stand as one of the premiere hip-hop acts in Australia at the moment, and their latest release Summerland only confirms this title, with infectious grooves, great vocals and the expected political slant contributing to what will no doubt be an even more enjoyable listen when summer actually rolls around on this side of the equator. Diva Jane Tyrrell provides soothing - almost sexy - vocals throughout, while leading men Ozi Batla and Urthboy keep the rhymes relatively fresh and smooth as ever. Catchy tracks ZUG ZUG and the stellar King is Dead add to what is already a pretty impressive album otherwise. Hip-hop has never been considered a traditional Australian musical genre, but this exciting octet nearly make you believe that it always was, or - at least - was always meant to be.
