i have to hear this, i really like the idea of soul clap making a divisive pop opus

seems like a far cry from the wolf + lamb album tho, right?

you mean the w+l dj kicks? i haven't listened to that since this time last year and it didn't leave a huge impression on me

i meant the wolf + lamb album, which was a p understated affair
i guess i'd argue that this thing is pretty 'pop' tbf, but it fails regardless. its problem has more to do with pretending like it has this uber-funky weirdness vibe going on, but not being even close to weird enough in actuality to pull it off. if you're going to have crazy spoken word intros that evoke dudes like andre 3000 or prince or george clinton or w/e they shouldn't be forced. and they shouldn't be this boring. i mean, lines like "a circumcised man gains powers of our universe, shaping him into a being of interplanetary dopeness" do not sell themselves
lex was right when he said this album was 'dry', p much the opposite of funk. i thought that the dj kicks thing actually achieved a nice balance of smoothness and weird-ass funkiness but this album is just blah

anyone heard the soul clap fact mix?
can't tell if i like this or hate it. fucking despise that "get low (incoming bitch)" track though, jesus. sounds like if limp bizkit made house music, not least with them roaring over the mic in any previous set i've heard it in.
some good stuff on here, though it's way closer to jazzy jeff's mixes than any of their previous stuff.

This Soul Clap album isn't exactly unpleasant but kinda dull at the same time? Like it simultaneously feels halfhearted and like it's trying way too hard.
