New Releases 02/04/2021

Think it starts out fantastic but maybe loses a bit of steam by the end. However, exclusively spoken word vocals usually doesn’t do a whole lot for me.

The first 6-7 tracks are good enough that I’ll keep giving it goes to see if it clicks as a whole.

I enjoy it when I’m listening to it but I can’t see myself coming back to it much. One of my favourite bits is the one short section where she sings a bit - they need to do more of that I think.

Label compilation record from Mello Music Group featuring Quelle Chris, Open Mike Eagle, Marlowe, Kool Keith, Apollo Brown,etc and guest credits including the Alchemist, Georgia Anne Muldrow,

Fallen for this Flock of Dimes album v hard over the weekend and found myself going down a Wye Oak rabbit hole.

What have I never found this band for over a decade?

Ordered myself a large back catalogue, which is of such consistent high quality. But especially love ‘Tween’ , which is supposedly an album of cast offs. Wow.

Thanks for the tip off bruised _blood.
