Snotty Nose Rez Kids

The Av­er­age Sav­age In­de­pen­dent snot­­

Broken Pencil - - Music Reviews -

State­ments that be­gin with “I’m not racist, but…” never end well, but they’re the per­fect fod­der for Snotty Nose Rez Kids al­bums. Such quotes — along with Bugs Bunny singing “Ten Lit­tle In­di­ans” — are pep­pered through­out the Van­cou­ver duo’s sopho­more record. Their aim is the recla­ma­tion of harm­ful lan­guage and the ex­pos­ing of stereo­types, and they’re not pulling any punches in the process; there’s a track here named “Kkkanada.” The rap­ping takes cen­tre stage — over min­i­mal but slick beats — and they rarely wa­ver from their mes­sage, so be pre­pared for 17 tracks of heavy-handed but nec­es­sary sham­ing.
