Here is the new Small Black mixtape, Moon Killer, in all of it’s excellence. I had no clue this thing was going to be so fucking good. Listen to this immediately. Easily, one of the best releases in recent months. Stream it above or download it below (for free).
“Love’s Not Enough” by Small Black // Moon Killer (2011)
Seriously, three songs are all that I’ve heard and it’s clear that I’m going to be head over heels in love with the new Small Black mixtape, Moon Killer. This new track from the forthcoming mixtape (available tomorrow) features a sample of Nicki Minaj’s “Your Love” and it’s used to spectacular effect. Shimmering synths and melancholic sing-along choruses are kind of Small Black’s things, but they just seem to be firing on all cylinders here. There’s not a bad thing about this excellent jam. Definitely worth hearing about fifty times in a row.
“Moon Killer” by Small Black // Moon Killer (2011)
Small Black has dropped another excellent track from their forthcoming Moon Killer mixtape. This time its the title track and is it ever excellent. Loaded with killer melodies, sci-fi synth lines, muted beats and a sing-a-long chorus. Count me in on all of this new material. I’m loving every ounce of it that I’m hearing.
“Two Rivers” by Small Black ft. Heems // Moon Killer (2011)
I hadn’t realized how much I’ve been missing Small Black in my life until they come back and drop this chiller than chill, synth-pop lullaby from their forthcoming mixtape, Moon Killer. It features some mellow verses from Heem of Das Racist, and a catchy, melodic chorus from Small Black frontman Josh Kolenik. It’s always amazing how just when I think I’ve squeezed all of the excellence from a year of music, I still get daily reminders that I’m completely wrong. Small Black had my favorite track of 2009. It looks like they’re trying to convince that they’re still up for the challenge in 2011 (and 2012 apparently, when they release they’re new full length).
