This came in my inbox and I finally had a chance to listen to it. Very nice and soulful with a spaced out sound to it. Definitely good for those moments when you just want to chill and relax. Give it a listen below and if you like it, you can get the download from Potholes.[audio:http://www.whatizhiphop.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/09/Blast-Off.mp3|titles=Blast-Off]

The Foreign Exchange discusses the independent route with LA Stereo.
The Foreign Exchange is one of my favorite groups. October 12, 2010 is the release date for their 3rd album titled “Authenticity“. I am glad to see them returning back to action after the classic “Leave It All Behind”. I, personally, cannot wait for this to drop.
“Authenticity” is the 3rd album by The Foreign Exchange and promises to pick up where 2008 Grammy-nominated “Leave It All Behind” left off. So far, the lead single “Maybe She’ll Dream of Me” is a hit and nearly crashed The Foreign Exchange website according to Phonte on Gordan Gartrell Radio Show 18.
“I think every band reaches that point when they come into their own and find a sound that is distinctively theirs,” says Phonte in reference to the album’s title. “The title refers to me and Nic’s journey to find our own unique space within this vast musical landscape. The biggest challenge as a musician is to find that ‘thing’ that makes you who you are. But I think we’re getting there, and we’re finding our way more and more with each record.”
Below is the tracklist; up top is the album cover. Get ready! October 12, 2010–“Authenticity“!
1. The Last Fall
3. Eyes To The Sky
4. All Roads
5. Fight For Love
6. Maybe She’ll Dream Of Me
7. Don’t Wait (ft. Darien Brockington)
8. Make Me A Fool (ft. Jesse Boykins III & Median)
9. Everything Must Go
10. Laughing At Your Plans (ft. Chantae Cann)
11. This City Ain’t The Same Without You (ft. YahZarah)
It’s nice to see Jesse Boykins featured on the album.
