Journey on. ‘The Upside Eternal’ by ALERT312 is truly that - a musical and physical journey. Boogalu’s professed love for a decaying and corrupt Chicago in the album opener, ‘Local’, ignites a 47 minute pilgrimage beginning in the here and now and ending in the heavenly with the album closer, ‘Eternal’. Seamlessly weaving hip hop instrumentals with live instrumentation and sampled records with string quartets, ‘The Upside Eternal’ is the duo’s most confident and mature work to date, all while keeping the ethnic and percussive core that has branded their music since the beginning. Knowing we’re all on a life long journey searching for something more, ALERT312 invites you to ‘The Upside Eternal’.
