CALL ME KARIZMA, “Recycled Youth”
After a brief break, Minnesota’s Call Me Karizma returns stronger than ever with “Recycled Youth”. In a bit of stylistic departure, “Recycled Youth” goes for a more alt.rock/hip hop sound that recalls the early days of Beck and the post-punk music of the late street poet Jim Carroll. Keeping his dedicated audience close to his heart, “Recycled Youth” puts ‘Riz in among many young people with complex issues in their lives and lets them know they are not alone. And part of that dedicated audience also consists of other young people who can help just by being there for the rest. “Recycled Youth” also seems to straddle different decades for parts of the song that even recall artists like T. Rex and Blink 182. “Recycled Youth” is Call Me Karizma’s third release for the Sony-revised Arista label following “Serotonin” and the Billboard-charting “Monster (Under My Bed)”.
