Member of ODD future, Earl Sweatshirt, released his album,I Don’t Like Shit, I Don’t Go Outside: An Album by Earl Sweatshirt. Now I know I’m late and what not but i have to take time to listen to an album before I write about it. With production from randomblackdude and LeftBrain. Sweatshirt uses verses within minimal, bass-heavy beats, down-tempo and dotted with flashes of melody and sparks of skittering high-hat. but show a young man who is healing and in the process of trying to heal.
Earl Sweatshirt’s is in some mood, this album is dark and wonderful at the same time. His talking about breakups, Weed and addictions which we all have and thats what makes this album real and raw. He has come out the world with an album. he hasn’t talked to anyone and has been doing what he does best and reading people in ‘Grief’.
Wool and DNA are a favourite of mine. love Vince and Na’kel both special performers who will go far in the music industry especially because they are young and versatile.
Sweatshirt is in this mood where he ain’t holding back and he is going for the kill . “I’ve been like this since the Motorola Razr,” showing how angry he is on ‘Off Top’.
This is a different brand of angry. Filled with barbs at former friends and taking the blame of his recent breakup, Earl’s portrait of the world is that is he is tired and and tired of the world he knows and the lyrics he is using is poetically beautiful. a
We Londoners have the pleasure of seeing Earl come to London in June to support his album and like many other concerts. I will be going because its always a joy to see him.
