Gil Scott-Heron, in 2010, released his first album in 13 years; a year later, producer Jamie xx fearlessly fused his own sound with Gil’s creating the We’re New Here project. This LP knocked me out. Just listen to it. Creativity runs rampant here (Note: the pattern of the snares on Ur Soul and Mine and The Crutch took me away).
In my mind, projects like this one show us what music is meant to be. Inspirational. Evolving. Creative.
Open your heart and enjoy this collection of coolness. Download here.
Oh yeah, shout out to Drake for the put on.
