As I’ve said before, it’s really fun to have friends who are doing cool shit. My man Gut and his girl have been busy at work on Grungecake, their online music/film/fashion smorgasbord. They just recently launched Grungecake Records and Gut sent me the first single from their artist Kendall Elijah, entitled “The Wild.”
You always want to like things that friends send you. No need for empty flattery–I love “The Wild.” Elijah’s slick, low-key flow weaves world weariness with introspection over a beautiful, melancholy beat (also produced by Elijah). And that chorus. Not really sure I can explain why, but it just hits me. Hopefully it hits you too. This is an anthem for the skeptics as winter turns to spring oh so slowly. Look out for Elijah’s Eli Dynamite EP, coming soon.
