Mr. Hudson has been on heavy the scene since 2006, but with Kanye West as a recent spokesperson (they also collaborated on West's 808s & Heartbreak), the London band is bound to get more attention. The album, "Straight No Chaser" was produced by Kanye, under the GOOD Music label. Featuring the don himself, as well as Kid Cudi, this is as close as the industry gets to mainstream avant-garde music. As the head of the band, vocalist and producer, Ben Hudson described the album as the following: "It's not trying to reinvent the wheel. It's straight, no chaser." It's essentially a pop album, and doesn't try to disguise itself as anything else... You can download the free mixtape offered on Mr Hudson's MySpace, which is little preview of the album, set to be released on October 19th.
