amazing album

Magnetic North and Taiyo Na's album "Home:Word" is carefully written, masterfully composed, and SO much fun to listen to. As a fan of Magnetic North's first album, I really enjoyed witnessing how much they have grown. Whereas their debut album was perfect for young adults trying to find their way in the world, Home:Word's tracks are more sophisticated, reflective, and profound. "We Belong" is by far the best track on the album----I think it could really be the next (first?) anthem for this Asian American generation. The lyrics are biting and insightful, at times painfully true and at others, hilariously so. The instrumentals are awesome.

"New Love" will make you cry. On that track, Theresa Vu establishes herself as the strongest MC. Every word in her verse is perfectly picked and placed. The melody is sweet and jazzy, and Heather Park's vocals are really beautiful. Who said the female emcee was extinct?? Nicki Minaj, move over --- Theresa Vu spits rhymes as clever as MInaj's and ten times as heartfelt and meaningful.

The first track, I Got My 2.0, is the weakest, so make sure not to judge the whole album based on it. Still, it is fun and really good live---just a little weak when recorded.

"Summertime" is really fun! We need a another summertime song to wash out the bad taste left by Katy Perry's "California Girls." Fun, clever, and lighthearted, this is the track! :D

This album has true star potential----it could really transcend the modifier of "Asian-American hip hop" and could really gain popularity among music lovers of all backgrounds. Buy the album, see for yourself, and support Magnetic North and Taiyo Na!

Magnetic North strikes again, this time with Taiyo Na

If you guys are trying find something "fresh, new & insightful" for your hip-hop taste buds, then buy this album! Along with their self-titled debut album released a while back. Magnetic North revived my love for hip-hop when I had almost given up on it a while back. This album is worth every penny, so what are you guys waiting for?!

No Vacancy

Been a fan since Drift Away, and now this album is here on iTunes and just the thought of owning it excited me. Direct and T-Vu have come a long way and with this edition of Taiyo Na, it is an unbeatable mix. Lyrics that really hit home, lessons and morals that are a part of everyday life; it gives me chills to listen to. These songs have been the only thing I've been listening to for the past few days! The next album is something that will be even better! Magnetic North is tops in hip hop and rap!

Years Active: '10s

When the vision of Betty Corrigall — an abandoned and pregnant-out-of-wedlock resident of Orkney who hung herself in the late 1770s — came to Erland Cooper in a dream in early 2011, he set about bringing together fellow Erland & the Carnival member Simon Tong (the Verve, the Good, the Bad and the Queen) and Irish singer/songwriter Hannah Peel to form the Magnetic North and write an album dedicated to the isles that Cooper had grown up on. Decamping to Stromness, the trio set about...
