1. Tyler, The Creator — LUMBERJACK
Tyler, The Creator always knows how to play a role. After being the diva on IGOR, he now returned as a cheesy but tough soul star. Only a few days before the release of his brand new album Call Me if You Get Lost, the American hip-hop artist released two tasters. “WUSYANAME” sounded like a smaller piece of a big overall, but “LUMBERJACK” really stands on its own.
It’s a dark club beat that sets the tone on “LUMBERJACK”, but the track almost immediately breaks down in an intermezzo. In no time, Tyler puts us back on the tracks for a two-minute trip to his own world. The basses are very pervasive and in no time your eating out of the hands of The Creator. With fractions of soulish pianos and additional electronic effects, “LUMBERJACK” is a delicious first single off Tyler’s sixth studio album.
