Burnell Washburn = El-P + Eyedea
Underground local star Burnell Washburn has graced the 801 with his new EP, An Apple a Day, a soul-medicating compilation of indie production, urban storytelling and poetic positivity. Burnell has hit a passionate stride with the predecessor to his upcoming August LP. Washburn spits with a cerebral style, endearingly passionate with a bite of the unique and unexpected. His balance of speed and thought-provoking flow are evident on track four. Washburn has a gentle vocal projection that ebbs and flows with implicit honesty and potent wording. His infamous work ethic is apparent in this over-achieving EP.
