CSR006: K▼L▲M†††B▲R▲NG x happyboy Split
Like a bat outta hell, a wild split appears!
We've hinted about this release in the last two posts, and now out of nowhere, here it is.
Happyboy's side of the split has him in his most post-rock leanings via glitchy, melancholy electronica jamz showcasing the spoken word of Quin S. Her words drip with the sadness of a girl that had her significant other die in a car crash coming home from the prom, a perfect compliment to happyboy's cinematic wash of sadcore electro.
Meanwhile, KB's side is a primer to what he has in store in his upcoming album, The Last ▲. This time around there are shards of light coming through the thick darkness. There's a more chill vibe, albeit, the doom and gloom is still evident. Its not so ambient, not so future trap/post-R&B, but we're pretty sure its a bit of both and then some. Futurist witches take heed.
The album artwork is done by the dreamy Bluetooth, Cult Shit Media Blackout's resident re-app artist - the one and the same that designed K▲B▲B▲L▲GH▲N. Look at that cover. Its fucking brilliant.
Now go download that split homie. It's imperative that you listen to it with the lights turned low with a bottle of scented lotion.
