Shane Eli - Have Mercy

Posted 5 years ago
Producer:
Shane Eli
Album:
I Can Do Better

If you’re looking for music that will shut your brain off and allow you to simply wild out, might I suggest taking the Cowabunga bus to Racksville? But if you want music that will reward you with repeated listens, who knows, maybe even make you feel feelings, I highly recommend putting Shane Eli’s latest release, Have Mercy, into your eardrums.  Produced, of course, by the headliner himself, Have Mercy revolves around skipping drums and a perfectly-timed sample of a gospel record from the East St. Louis Gospelettes – it’s like Cam’ron’s Oh Boy, except the opposite. But the real story here is Eli’s storytelling skills as he delves into a cinematic tale about how cycles of violence and poverty can keep one family wondering if God is indeed watching over them. See, I told you it was a little deeper than Racks. Those feeling converted to Shane Eli’s music can enjoy a direct download and full stream of I Can Do Better here, keep an eye out for the ICDB’s instrumental version, coming soon with bonus tracks, and can support his next project through Kickstarter here.
