“VILE TYRANT AND THE MIDDLE MEN“
Written by: Naeemah Z. Maddox
AVAILABLE NOW on bandcamp!
“Vile Tyrant and the Middle Men” is Naeemah’s second full length album. More than 5 years in the making, this concept album serves as a statement analyzing the effect of mankind’s struggles on a macro (political) and micro (personal) level. Enhanced with the visual images created by Artist Lindsey Wavrek, this album is dense with color and texture. VTMM showcases a more complete view of Naeemah’s uniquely quirky compositional style. In progress for over a 5 year period, Naeemah recorded this album in her west Philly apartment on her Imac with a simple set up. Condenser Mic, interface, midi keyboard and a whole lot of trouble shooting. Naeemah recorded all of the instruments on the album with the exception of Drums (Tony Flagiello) and Bass (Josh “Freshy” Cisario). These instruments include all flutes, violins, keyboards, vocals, drum programming and bass on two of the nine tracks. The result is an album that blurs and bridges the lines between Progressive Chamber pop and soul infused rock.
