naps. - for sale
Hydrate, the debut album from Australia’s naps., sounds like a beat-centric, hip-hop tape made by somebody who just got way too high somewhere along the way. The end result comes off as a sound collage with waves of psychedelia slowly rolling over it, while bursts of intricate digital manipulation steadily move to keep the album bright, complex, noisy, and fun.
“For Sale” transports the listener to another world where New Age electronics are still very popular and hip-hop beats are rotting and festering at the bottom of a deep, dark ocean. It’s all quite pleasant, really.
Hydrate is now available digitally and on tape via This Thing.
[New] Freddie Gibbs & Madlib - Robes - ft. Earl Sweatshirt & Domo Genesis (BBC Rip)
[Freddie Gibbs & Madlib’s Pinata will be released March 18, 2014]
You can preorder PP’s Captured Tracks debut Say Yes To Love on iTunes to get a download of this song, as well as a couple of live tracks (including my favorite I).
