Kevin West

My Life & Times
(independent)

On his latest, local songwriter, guitarist, and white-dude rapper Kevin West attempts to overlap funky acoustic rock with funky hip-hop and soul. The groove-filled, Carolina-centric collection is comprised of a dozen songs and a handful of comedy skits based on his own true-life experiences. Musically, it's all over the map, with acoustic and electric modern rock tunes, dirty-word rhymes and stories, and a few bouncy rap-rock hybrids. Around a traditional rock band style of production, there's plenty of drum machine rhythm tracks, samples, and electronic loops. West's kid brother, Mike West [a.k.a "O.C."], stands out as one of the rappers alongside Alex Carpenter [a.k.a. "ACE"]. My Life & Times makes a few weird turns from one style to another, but it bounces throughout. —TBL
