Murs isn't Afraid to Tackle Boise 

Monday, Mar. 11 at Neurolux

Murs has been making smart underground hip-hop for years--first with California indie rap troupe Living Legends and more recently as a solo artist.

Murs' early material skewed toward slow-rolling funk and soul beats, peppered with brass and thumping bass lines, but 2011's Love and Rockets Vol. 1 mixed in new genres, borrowing droning guitars and heaps of digital reverb. Consistent through both styles is a strong voice unafraid to tackle social and political issues.

Savvy rhymes, fresh beats and a cool, composed flow make Murs a standout among his contemporaries, who include El-P and J Dilla. Murs returns to Boise Friday, March 11, at the tail end of the multi-city Road to Paid Dues Tour.
