Bangers & Ash [coll] – [Styles Upon Styles]
This is a split on the Styles Upon Styles label/project/collective out of Brooklyn. Lets start with the B-Side with music by “extraterrestrial dance music” artist (read Hip Hop) kuxxan SUUM aka Zach Cooper. Because I listened to this side first and it rocked so hard, the A-side had a lot to live up to. kuxxan SUUMs beats and breaks totally rocked it out hip hop style, this was amazing. A-side features “avant-soul project” King Garbage aka Victor DiMotsis. Typical Brooklyn insipid hipster mediocrity. So disappointing. I know there are people who love this but I am NOT ONE OF THEM. It conjures up a guy in a flat cap with a full beard, wearing an ironic sweater and riding a fixing. Sappy vocals and the intentionally lackadaisical sound that this genre offers. Bleck.
Just play kuxxan SUUM.
