Ghostpoet - Peanut Butter Blues and Melancholy Jam

Ghostpoet - Peanut Butter Blues and Melancholy Jam (Brownswood Recordings) Comentários: MC/producer Ghostpoet introduced himself to much acclaim with the Michachu-starring 'The Sound Of Strangers' free EP in 2010. He turns his debut album 'Peanut Butter Blues & Melancholy Jam' over to Gilles Peterson's Brownswood Recordings, featuring a curiously idiosyncratic blend of electronic HipHop and shoegaze-y rock with darkly personal lyrics. Standout moments for us are found on the moody, dubstep-influenced 'Gaaasp' and 'Us Against Whatever Ever' with its swelling strings and a delivery oscillating between nonchalant and impassioned, while we find a darker take on Roots Manuva's sound in 'Finished I Ain't' and a arresting production of 'Cash and Carry Me Home' with a tale we can all relate to.
