SoCalled brings it home for the holidays

socalled seder Passover starts Monday night at sundown, many of you will gather with friends and family for 4 cups of wine, 4 questions, and more dry, flat, unleavened bread than you’d care to think about.
Socalled’s Passover masterpiece, The SoCalled Seder: A Hip Hop Haggadah, is the perfect antidote to a seder as dry as the matzah you're going to eat. It makes a great Afikomen prize. Whether you drink the 4 cups or not, its a great sountrack to the first week of April.
Currently at JDub, we’re hawking the CD in the JDub Webstore for only $7.99! Its also available for download from itunes and emusic
Or you can get your fix with free downloads. Listen to Who Know’s One? and 2nd Cup: Bless the Wine, and hear two more tracks on Socalled’s myspace page!
The SoCalled Seder takes you through the Passover Haggadah in an entirely new way. It features cameos by the Wu Tang Clan’s Killah Priest, Mr. Bungle’s Trevor Dunn, Montreal’s queen of country Katie Moore, David Krakauer, Susan and Elaine Hoffman Watts, and many others. Stay tuned for news of Socalled’s new release, Ghettoblaster, hitting stores everywhere on June 12th.

  1. does anyone know if this is sold in Judaica stores in NYC? or have other ideas for Pesah gifts for relatives?

  2. I absolutely love this album. I have, however, known others who were really put off by Socalled’s dropping of the n-word a few times through the course of the album. I personally wish he would have kept clear of using it, but I still think that the record is great.

  3. for sake of clarification, it is not socalled who drops the “N-word” – or as Steven Colbert calls it – “Narnia” – rather it comes out of the mouths of the (Black) MCs who drop guest vocals on the record. no doubt that this is not entirely a record for religious kids, but you have to admit that regardless of your take on a few 4 letter words, its a creative piece of music. G-d knows the jewish world needs some more quality tunes

  4. This CD is unlistenable. Please let me know when the Levees or Blue Fringe come out with a Passover CD.

  5. Hey – FYI: there is a film in production about Josh Dolgin, following him on a Klezmer Cruise in Ukraine – as he leads a 60 person choir, and checks out interesting and historical sites. I am going along, and keeping a production blog where you can watch videos, etc. with Socalled. check it out, and let me know what you think:
