Dark Time Sunshine – “Vessel” – [Fake Four Inc.]
Chock up another genre for my training! Hip hop lyrics are like poetry, yet with a definite cultural snapshot quality to them, and this is what makes hip hop so crucial. I may not understand what they’re talking about, but Dark Time Sunshine have a lot to say, and they say it over pretty impressive, throbbing beats that I can relate to, if I can’t relate to the words. 9 has a nice female vocal and goes into the band’s name; 7 and 16 have catchy bass beats and quirky outros that sound nothing like the rest of the song (some are like samples). I enjoyed this.
