Jel - La Resolve

Avant-garde indie hip hop artist slash producer slash jack-of-all-trades Jel has kept himself quite busy over the past few years with other projects like Themselves and Subtle and 13 & God, so all of his actual solo releases since Soft Money have either been mixtapes of experimental miscellany or unreleased track collections of sorts. Late Pass, however, is a proper album, finally, and it's a fairly laid-back and murky listen, with the some real neato twists and turns and woozy beat experiments and murmuring stream-of-consciousness styled bits of existentialist doubt - or wisdom, depending on your interpretation - spread throughout.
