Thr album System Breakdown from Loud Apartment feels like a revolution is coming out of my stereo. I want the album to play until the patriarchy crumbles into a pile of dust.
Loud Apartment of New York City is a funk band influenced by reggae, dubstep, and soul music.
They remind me of jazz/funk bands that I used to hear while living in the big city. If I could go back in time, I would spend more time at the jazz halls. Those nights were the best of times. This album gives me hope that there will be good times again.
I want to listen to this album while doing something proactive. This music makes me want to get up and change – myself and my surroundings. The revolution has to start somewhere so why not with “System Breakdown?”
Hopefully, Loud Apartment will inspire many people to change everything in a positive way.
