Lushlife: Plateau Vision
Buy! - (Western Vinyl)
This Philly rapper/producer follows up his acclaimed 2011 mixtape No More Golden Days with this excellent album of gritty yet expansive hip hop combining a classic ‘90s New York rap sensibility with hazy, psych-influenced production that creatively samples from the worlds of indie-rock, psych-pop, classical and more. Like No More Golden Days, Plateau Vision also smoothly works in a variety of special guests including Styles P, former Titus Andronicus guitarist Andrew Cedarmark, Shad, Heems of Das Racist and Cities Aviv, but it’s Lushlife’s increasingly confident rapping that’s the focal point, combining densely packed rhymes with a fluid, hard-hitting delivery reminiscent of Nas. 2/17/2012 - Don Yates
