SOUL GLO ‘Diaspora ‘Problems’

Mar 18, 2023 | Punk, Reviews

Essays of vitriol & street logic

Already in possession of an immensely distinctive discography, Philly’s Soul Glo have proved themselves to be one of the most versatile outfits around with new album, Diaspora Problems. Hardcore does not begin to describe this maelstrom: their ability to repeatedly fracture into a spectrum of styles, and fuse back into a juggernaut of propulsive power is bewildering. Topped with Pierce Jordan’s essays of vitriol and street logic, the message of survival, and black artists meeting with untimely deaths, are rapped, screamed, and hammered home.
