Al Lover- Heavy Hippies (Cheapdrugsfreelove)

New MusicadminComment

Fresh off the Al Lover Bandcamp, here's a new set of instrumentals that combine the schools of hip hop, garage rock, and psychedelic rock. The sounds that come together on this thing are hard, heavy, and grimy. Tons of wailing solos, tarnished guitar chords, and lumbering beats.

I also wanna note that Al is pretty great when it comes to mixing his sounds with the sounds he's sampling. It's almost as if the hip hop beats he's throwing against these vintage rock samples were meant to be there. Nice attention to mixing and texture, for sure.

Enjoy the free mixtape, and make sure to check out the EP Al's got out on iTunes.
