I might have mentioned before, but I suck at writing about hip hop, rap, trap etc. (“You suck at everything else too!” Yeah, fair cop…) Here’s Maxo Kream‘s 5200. It’s good, just don’t expect me to tell you for why.
Palm‘s Composite staggers in and out of ‘knowing Beach Boys pastiche’ and something I’m reliably informed is ‘Math Pop’, something I can only assume is math rock’s less obnoxious cousin. Also, guys, it’s maths.
Full disclosure: found Morabeza Tobacco‘s TTYL on Pitchfork’s generally excellent ‘What’s Good‘ playlist and it’s probably not the last time I’ll pilfer from that. Sounds like an off-cut from the soundtrack to Drive. Hazy as all fuck.
