MP3 of the Day: GME Gets Extra-Terrestrial on "Phone Home"

GME doing turquoise proud
Yet another installment of MP3 of the Day, which ideally appears on a daily basis here at Crossfade. If you're in a South Florida act, or know one we at the New Times Broward-Palm Beach office should co-sign for, please drop a line to mp3ofthedaysofla@gmail.com.

On the single, "Phone Home," West Palm Beach rap quintet GME make a case for swag so fresh that it's out of this world, literally. Their Auto-Tune space odyssey -- available as a free download below -- suggests that someone hipped these youths to Zapp & Roger (or at least Daft Punk). Parallels to the bubblegum pop rhymes of Soulja Boy, or maybe even Los Angeles' Jerkin' retro dance and beats movement aren't out of the question either.

Group member Tazz calls GME's aesthetic "Southern futuristic swag," and we'll buy into that. He, along with Trouble Man, Che, Dokes, and Y-Jay, who came together in the Palm Beach school system, released their first mixtape, The Comeup, in January.
