Young Fathers

Young Fathers - Rumbling
Young Fathers - Romance

Thanks, Anticon peeps, for rereleasing this eclectic experiment in rumbling percussion and dusty samples by this weirdo hip hop trio from Edinburgh. Think lo-fi production and crunchy/catchy beats, tribal rhythms, layered textures of sound, and a whole lotta other stuff that doesn't easily fit into an appropriate genre. Cub gave Young Fathers the nod a while back, so we knew it had to be a much-better-than-average listen. And it is.

Want more? Check out the video for Romance, after the jump.
