“Cover Artist, October 2011”

"[N]othing short of a perfect machine with everything fitting together, but in constantly new and unexpected ways."

"[A] refreshingly different take on full-band hip-hop"

“[T]he unveiling of a new hip-hop phenomenon ... sure to be one of those bands you are going to want to say you knew about before they blew up.”

"Crooked Skyline exploded through my speakers, I immediately loved their unique style of live band hip-hop ... Funkin’ hip-hop power with instruments, samples, singing, turntabalism, and lyrical flow all fitting together like pieces of a puzzle. ... From start to finish the album makes you move and the band brings a dramatic element to the hip-hop beats, allowing Broken Tongues to explore the outer reaches of their musical range."

“Reminiscent of ’90s hip-hop like Brand New Heavies, US3 and the “Jazzmatazz” releases curated by Gangstarr’s Guru, “Does Hip-Hop Remember the Jazz?” spotlights the six-person collective’s jazz chops, funk proclivities and smooth flows. While guitarist Zach Warkentin, bassist and keyboardist Erin Angel and drummer Donny Broussard lay down a tasty groove, emcees Greensleeves and Loose Change kick back with calm and confident rhymes that contrast nicely with CC Chambers’ soulful belting on the hook.”

“Broken Tongues is a dope ass group outta Denver that you need to know about... They do a great job of fusing live instrumentation and jazz into hip hop. If you like stuff like Tribe, then you’ll dig it.”
