the new album by that one dude from Derrick Comedy.
i’ll never not associate Donald Glover from those videos on youtube. not a bad thing tho.
i only just recently discovered his last album - Camp - after not paying attention to him since Poindexter. Camp was/is awesome, a near perfect noun in every sense of the word.
this album is what i would call the polar opposite of Camp. it’s not as inviting or easy on the airs (at times). it’s not as accessible, essentially. it’s more experimental, harsher and the angst is more detached. it’s still catchy at times and production is top notch. some songs sound like something you’d hear on a Nujabes record while others sound like something that would show up as a B-side to a Weeknd single. and many other sounds besides. it’s kinda all over the place, for good or ill.
it’s definitely artsy. there are features on it but they kinda get lost in the mix which is hilariously the exact opposite of how Poindexter went in terms of features (they overshadowed Gambino).
it’s a perfect to follow up to Camp - as an album - but i don’t know if i could just recommend it to anyone like i would with Camp. but if you like good music in general then you should at least check it out. or don’t. whatever. up to you.
because the internet mistakes are forever
