He Found Brick Inedible

The first solo album from Mother Tareka. 


Civilization ended the moment it began. So when we face up to our industrial poisonous civilization, we will one day have to forage and hunt singing 
'I refuse to be miserable even though brick is still inedible' !

"Mother Tareka & The Greezy Steez are a hip hop monster. If Rage Against The Machine, and The Roots had a baby, and that baby decided to move to Hamilton – it would grow into a full adult and form a band like Mother Tareka & The Greezy Steez" cutfromsteel.com

Imagine Something Different

Inspired by the circular tree of life design as a representation of how small and insignificant we are as humans in the grand scheme of things on this earth, one of so many, Imagine Something Different is a sonic challenge to human centered ideology. Imagine what our world would look like, how our lives would feel, how we would structure our societies, if we recognized the rights of all creatures!


Imagine a world where we don't let the accumulation of wealth and power by a few dictate the shape our futures, our lives, and our well-being! A world without the patriarchal hierarchies and governance systems that actively oppress and harm the majority of human life, not to mention all other forms of life! 


Mother Tareka's dense lyricism and musicality shines throughout the album, which enlists comrades Lee Reed, MonkeyWrench, and Emay for guest verses, and flows within beats created by HUTCHI, 1988, Moment, MonkeyWrench again, Brett Klassen, and L - S P E X.
Recorded mixed and mastered by Cee Reality of Test Their Logik at Reality Studio Lab on Occupied Turtle Island. Much respect to RHYMETHiNK!
