Parnhash & Coe
Parnhash & Coe
Stonehenge Parnhashnokovsy doesn't battle with rappers on the internet. Alex Coe’s guitar as busted as he is pretty. Together they perform as Parnash & Coe, a frenetic duo coming to a living room near you.

Like all dualities, this duo harnesses their tension: an agro rapper from DC performing with a hardcore Minnesota rocker with an acoustic guitar. With influences ranging from liturgical to punk, ambient to hardcore metal, the songs are practiced alchemy. “It shouldn’t work but it does,” says Alex, “It helps we both go 100 percent on every single performance.”

The two met at a gallery in 2014, and quickly learned to anticipate each other’s musicality. Alex began with a simple percussive strum to accompany Chris' freestyle bars, but as they refined their sound, the two began swapped lyrics and rhythms. “My first impression of Chris?” said Alex covered in sweat after a recent set, “Organized.”

Parnhash & Coe didn’t name their album because “the album format comes from how many microgrooves they could fit together on a vinyl disc a hundred years ago,” explains Chris Carr, aka Stonehenge Parnhashnokovsy (“you say it like you spell it.”).

Instead of building a brand, or chasing views, Parnhash & Coe is dedicated to one thing: sharing their music up close. “We’ve been playing together for 3 years,” explains Chris, “And of course we want to performing for as many people as possible, but without sacrificing the intimacy of the shows.”

Chris and Alex have been writing, performing and organizing music for three decades between them and they’re focused: “First of all, we want to master our craft - our studio recordings, our live performance, that never stops,” said Chris, “But otherwise, we’re not waiting for someone to discover us - we’re open to hearing our music in a video game, or booking more structured tours, but we’re after longevity.”

The goal is sharing the music in person. Their latest album is sent to everyone who attends their living room shows and Parnhash & Coe simply asks the audience who’s gonna host them next. Through their collaboration with Artery.is, a decentralized platform for culture in private spaces, Parnhash & Coe have performed in dozens of homes, keeping the proceeds and lining up more shows around the country.

“Streaming?” says Chris, who is 41 years old, “That’s out of date.” Which isn’t to say they do it alone - the latest album was created in collaboration with Paco the G Train Bandit, and Parnhash & Coe have been featured on BRIC TV, Popdust and at Sofar Sounds.

What’s next for Parnhash & Coe? Hundreds more house shows, another record, knowing that everyone who hears them has met them - and some wanderlust: “We like to travel,” says Chris, putting his clothes back on after the set.
Mandella Eskia
Mandella Eskia
"Harlem. Her streets paved in the gold of black thought, poetry, song, and struggle. Mandella Eskia fka Crimdella is Harlem, but his name rings out city-wide. Founding member of Black God Pantheon, 'Crim, youngest son of revered Activist Elombe Brath is true to his roots, and to the roots of his neighborhood. An uptown icon in the making.

Mandella Eskia's latest album, the self-released Bury Me In Gold is a testament to the emcee's skill, and Harlem's rich African American identity. Uptown's legacy, its juke joint past, its street wisdom, and unapologetic pro-black heritage all flourish in Mandella. The album exudes the brash playfulness, and razor wit of the great Harlem rappers before him, with a sound that is modern, but undeniably New York.

The record's lead single, Extra has garnered over 20k video streams with minimal industry support. A magnetism, steeped in Harlem swagger, black pride, and he pours this charisma effortlessly into his music. He is the sound of Black youth across Harlem and America, energized by recent events, and the celebration of life that endures.

A staple on the live circuit, Mandella Eskia has opened for Nas, Wale, Siimba Liives Long and has performed alongside fellow up and coming MC Jadon Woodard. No stranger to New York's indie scene, and appears regularly at NYC venues including Irving Plaza, Pianos, Cake Shop, and Brooklyn music halls like Paper Box. His shows often see the emcee cloaked in a crowd eagerly reciting his lyrics along with him, an omen of what's to come.

Similar Artists include Kendrick Lamar, J Cole, Mick Jenkins, Push T, Kanye West"

almost taking Julia’s life. After a year of recovery, contemplation, and prolific experimentation, Julia had written Comatose Hope and recorded it with Drew Morgan, producer of Perfume Genius’s Put Your Back N 2 It.
