"Nothing Is Everything" by Government Overdose Department (Electronica Artist from United Kingdom)

RadioIndy is pleased to present Government Overdose Department with a GrIndie Award for their CD "Nothing Is Everything"
"Nothing Is Everything" is an avant garde electronic punk album with hip-hop undertones from Government Overdose Department. G.O.D. is not only political in their content, but the band also delivers powerful messages about freedom of expression and offers an eclectic take on life. The arrangements are very creative, incorporating many genres and introducing you to sounds that will challenge your ears. The sound is full and well layered, with great instrumentation and an interesting blending of sounds. The mix does not sell the production short either; it's well-polished and sounds really good. Highlights include "Marajuana," which has a killer arrangement, a great hook, and one of the most bizarre groans you have ever heard in a song. "G.O.D." opens with haunting spoken word and evolves into a nice barrage of well-layered lyrics with great diversity. "Mushroom Song" is a trip to say the least, as it opens with pure psychedelia and evolves into a strange punk/jazz number. If you enjoy psychedelic rock fused with punk, hip-hop, and electronica, Government Overdose Department's "Nothing is Everything" will be quite the experience for you. (WARNING! EXPLICIT LYRICS)
