Catching up with the homie Tomasi. This is from late 2011. “Goin’ In” feat. Jae Millz.
Toronto three-piece ensemble BADBADNOTGOOD are unleashing BBNG2 onto the world today. Their second full length free album, in addition to two live albums they’ve put out in the past few months (BBNGLIVE1 and BBNGLIVE2), this newest opus sees the group balance interpretations of songs that have become staples of their live sets, like James Blake’s “Limit to Your Love” and Gucci Mane’s “Lemonade,” with original material that showcases the group’s range light-years beyond most expectations of what a drums / keys / bass trio can produce.
The opening number “Earl,” aptly named after the Odd Future comeback kid, is a monstrous mash of drowning keys, thundering snares, clever bassline, and a saxophone effort courtesy of Leland Whitty. “Vices,” premiered by OkayPlayer yesterday, may be the group’s most daring and layered song to date. Soft atmospheric keys lead to mounting chord progressions that culminate in a frentic climax, pulling back into halftime at the midway mark with a hypnotic melody remniscent of the best elements of UK bass. “CHSTR” sees the group produce a more mellow sound. This time, the running bassline takes centerstage after a progressive drum / keys set up and the song ultimately leads into a euphoric melody that keeps elevating into a final medley.
After receiving wide acclaim for their initial Odd Future covers, then going viral with the live jam sessions with Tyler the Creator, and their critically-acclaimed set at Gilles Peterson’s Worldwide Awards, the group is on its course to have a big year in 2012. Next major stop is a their much-anticipated set at Coachella, followed by some select North American dates and other festival plays throughout the summer.
