Following from my review of Sims' exceptional Bad Time Zoo (below), I've been doing a bit of digging around the background of his label, Doomtree. They're actually more of a collective or family, based in the midwest, and representing some exellent rap talent. Many of their fam seem to belong more to the 'Alternative Hip-Hop' stable, where the word Alternative could easily translate as 'intellegent'. This music is socially conscious, forward-thinking, and should appeal to fans of Indie as much as those of straight up Hip-Hop.
Check out the roster here. Everything I've heard so far is brilliant...I'd especially recommend producer/emcee P.O.S.
