WHAT Y’ALL LISTENING TO!?
Hello, there, Swurv audience. Many of you probably slept on Oddisee’s latest project The Good Fight. If you did, shame on you. It’s one of the best hip-hop projects you’ll hear all year. One song that has stayed on repeat is a very simple number, called “That’s Love.” Oddisee’s production simmers in its own orchestral gumbo. You sense he’s really a jazzman in different form, inhabiting the spirit of Roy Ayers and other past greats. The Fader’s compared him to a musical MC Escher, calling hailing his “grandiose and symphonic sound” and “relevant relatable messages.” Pitchfork praised his “eclectic soulful boom-bap.”
But that’s just me. What y’all listening to?
