CHASING SUMMER - SiR
The new SiR tape is a jewel of silky grooves and perfectly fresh production from the wistful “John Redcorn” to the exhilarating “New Sky”, it fits to me that he comes out of the same orbit as someone like Anderson Paak who carries the strong tradition of hip-hop adjacent R & B. The topic matter vacillates from braggadocious machismo to sensitive intricate stories of infidelity and changing perspective with age. The Kendrick song is perfect and fits the whole album’s chill vibe. For me it’s hard to decide if it’s this guy’s beautiful voice or the top-notch production all over this record that makes it sound so good so let’s just say both are very great- don’t miss this one.
