Melissa Czarnik and Eric Mire are among East Side Milwaukee's more verbally dexterous rappers. Their sociopolitical M.C.-ing and the organic soul/jazz vibes on their latest studio projects transfer well to a live setting in one of the city's favorite noncommercial radio stations, WMSE. Saxophone, bass, guitar and a battery of percussion wend around Czarnik's often staccato flow. YouTube clips demonstrate that Czarnik and Mire's head-nodding, slinky combination of musical talent and adept rhyme spitting works masterfully in coffeehouse settings as well as more traditional hip-hop stages. These four songs deliver that point as well. It’s the next best thing to being there live.
