Main Attrakionz team up with These New Puritans (the band from the UK) for some certified dope shit. Some people may think funny of their slowed-up Bay Area drawl, but you can’t deny the overall energy and approach of these cats. It’s undeniable that they’ve got both ear and mind wide-open on some progressive stylings; whether that entails rhyming over spaced-as-fuck synths, voices, and 808’s, or doing shows in museums, or with garbage can-lobbing hardcore bands…or both. I’m just happy to see more cats who aren’t afraid to not only think beyond the current day trend; either squeaky-clean, P.C. radio anthems (that come off like a proposition from a pedophile), or building a career and style off of referencing the past, but also fully flex that D.I.Y., dirt hustlin’ attitude. It’s their anti-Industry aura that charms the most.
Plus, this joint is sinister. A+.
Peace to EPMDenny.
