Willie stiffed us last week, so for the two people who were interested in that review, you’re going to have to wait, i’m afraid. Seriously, though, who goes to a beat site to read a Willie Nelson review? Clearly, cool cats like you. Up high, motherfuckers!
Seldom has the term “blunted beats” been so apt as it is with Pig Pen’s Anybody Can Be Cool…But Awesome Takes Practice. The 100 Akres artist has put together 14 tracks of blissful, crazed and kooky beats that are easy on the ear hole. While the crate digging is impressive, this is not a throwback project. These are laid back, mellow riders, but with a booming undercurrent playing throughout. Strings mingle against thick legged bass, crisp percussion and funky interludes. The occasional horny horn never hurt anyone, either.
