Your Daily Lick: Rising Asterisk

Rise & Shine (Grow Records)

Fans of Seattle’s Blue Scholars should be down with local crew Rising Asterisk, a two-guy, two-girl group billing its sound as conscious Filipino hip-hop. Asterisk’s debut full-length thrives on vintage flavor, with modern infusions of R&B vocals and peppy rock and jazz samples. The batch is hit or miss, but when it works, it really works.
