Snippet of ‘Darlin” off Love Craft

Multi-instrumentalist and Stones Throw intern-turned-artist makes random yet varied work– his first project was an electro-rap throwback and his second was a lo-fi post punk record. Both were interesting but never really stuck, at least with me. His latest, Love Craft, shows a lot of know-how underpinned with an uncompromising ethos. It’s also yet another reminder of Stones Throw recent deviation away from hip-hop.

I spoke to James for WaxPoetics issue #40 and he’s made more noise since. Peep ‘Darlin” off the new album. It’s a minimal, post-punk sounding garage track with doo-wop melodies and lyrics. And it works. Interested in seeing what dude does next.
