Injury Reserve’s kitchen-sink approach to creating rap music is perhaps what makes this oddball crew stand out from the rest. Conjuring up a blend of jazz-rap, industrial, grime, and punk, the Arizona-based trio have made a name for themselves in internet hip-hop circles for carving out pop hooks amid blistering experimental production. Now, with their self-titled debut, Injury Reserve are shooting high with features from the year’s heaviest hitters for their most futuristic and conceptual outing to date. Bringing in the likes of Rico Nasty on the merciless call-out track “Jawbreaker,” and Aminé on the mischievously fun “Jailbreak the Tesla,” Injury Reserve prove their tenacity for innovation without taking themselves too seriously. -- Jake Van ValkenburgMore information
