Track: J.O. – The Letter/The Last Song

A very talented artist, J.O. of the steam-gaining Neighburrrhood stands out on the double sided “The Letter/The Last Song”.  From Chattanooga, J.O. breaks listeners off with a 2 for 1 that starts off as what struck me at first listen was something that would be more at home in an episode of Def Poetry jam than on the pages of NHWWW.  J.O.’s sole description of the effort only states “Through pain, comes poetry,” and that is all that was needed.  After “The Letter” concludes, “The Last Song” begins.  J.O. switches from the intense spoken word backed by jazzy pianos to an equally stinging ballad of sorts.  Truly a piece of art, “The Letter/The Last Song” is a beautiful, well orchestrated, attack that left me agonizing on the edge of my seat.
