EarthRise SoundSystems second full-length album, Rock Beats Paper (Yoga Organix Records), flips the script of the classic childrens game and serves as a wake-up call to the consequences of choosing money over the environment.

For so long the paper of money has been beating out rockthe elements, the resources of this planetand thats all changing, says producer/percussionist David Duke Mushroom Schommer. The time has come for that to be revalued. Clearly our planets resources are worth more than our paper money.

After reaching #5 on the iTunes World chart and receiving accolades from the NY Times, Boston Globe, Yoga Journal, MTV and NBC Weekend Today with their debut, The Yoga Sessions, Schommer and Derek Beres return with hard-hitting, percussion-driven rhythms tempered by a wide range of melodic influences, from India, Pakistan, Jamaica, Brazil, Peru and America.

The first album was specifically designed to match the arc of a flow yoga class, says Beres, a Los Angeles-based yoga instructor and DJ. With this album, we decided to pay homage to the dance floor as well as the yoga studio.
