Producer:
The Neptunes
Album:
Nothing

Whether you think of N.E.R.D. as a musical group breaking down barriers, or just making an unlistenable cacophony on the airwaves (personally I’ll go with the first interpretation), they are here to stay. Built around a core trio of The Neptunes associates Pharrell Williams and Chad Hugo as well as Shay Haley, along with whatever musicians the group attracts at the moment, the N.E.R.D.s are now pushing their follow-up to hit single Hot-N-Fun, the rocking Help Me Live. This time around they’ve deviated from their usual quirky club bangers to a ‘60s jam band scenario, with Pharrell working the vocals over some live instrument Neptunes production that is a flash back to a time…well…way before my time. However listeners feel about this new musical path from the guys, much like their acronym (No-one Ever Really Dies), even the most negative reviews won’t possibly kill their movement. If you’re down to ride along with this ever-eclectic group, be sure to look out for their latest project, Nothing, dropping September 7 via Star Trak/Interscope.
