JAMAICAN QUEENS at Metro Times Blowout

Thank goodness the Jamaican Queens are back with a new album (the excellent and excellently-named Downers, out in June) tour, videos and all of that. They really are one of Detroit’s most innovative and fun groups. They have also always had the ability to cross over to a larger audience, bridging rock and dance scenes. Maybe this time next year they’ll be international superstars? We’d not be surprised. Jamaican Queens pile on heavy rap beats, low-woozy-bass bursts, trundling 808s and cascades of spacey-synth samples. Describing the JQ sound with his bandmate Adam Pressley (JQ-co-founder, guitarist, beat experimenter and producer), Ryan Spencer tellingly repeats the phrase: “Fuck with it.”
