Been waiting a long time for this…never has over 2 years felt so long. The new track carries a heavy vibe of The National & Grizzly Bear, while still sounding like an organic Local Natives track. Their sophomore album Hummingbird out January 28th on Infectious and January 29th on Frenchkiss.
Just to get this out of the way, I don’t think I have much kind to say about Lil B. My first exposure to him was through Clams Casino and when hearing the track he did for Lil B with and without vocals…I vastly preferred the version without his rapping. This song tumbles down the same route; the beat is amazing and while Stunnaman does a good job, the moment Lil B starts, the quality drops. While I didn’t intend for this to just be a slam on Lil B, I guess I’ve never really been called to voice my opinion on him. Instead, focus on the head nodding, glitchy clatter that Star Slinger brings to the table and enjoy.
Check out the new EP from the world’s greatest wonk-step artist Hudson Mohawke. The full 5 song EP is now up on youtube and if you like you can pre-order the vinyl from Bleep or a digital copy from ye olde iTunes.
