Another “Loser” preview: “I’m Alive, but I’m Not Here” by @callmeKarizma

KARIZMA, “I’m Alive, but I’m Not Here”

The great appeal about Minnesota native and hip hop performer Karizma is his ability to get inside common themes in the teen and young adult minds.  “I’m Alive, but I’m Not Here” may seem on the surface like it’s just about being down and out, with a style that focuses less on hip hop this time and more on an acoustic Green Day-meets-Beck-meets-Blink 182 narrative, but it’s not.  It’s also about not being alone with who and what you are, there is always someone else, and hey that person may be even worse off.  Karizma is big on empathy and outreach, qualities that you don’t find in many performers these days, and they resonate with his audience of ‘losers’.  Karizma’s album Loser arrives on Saturday January 30 so be sure to pick it up.  Listen above to “I’m Alive, but I’m Not Here” as well as “u suck” and “Euphoria” (both of which I’ve recently written about).
