Last December, Anderson.Paak and producer Knxwledge gave us all a cracker of a Christmas present with their NxWorries ‘Link Up & Suede’ EP. Turns out the LA-based duo had a bit more up their sleeves, as they’re back with a debut full-length, ‘Yes Lawd!’, on 21st October.
According to Stones Throw, the 19-track LP “merges skits, songs, and snippets into a package of fluid groove and rough-cut rap’n’soul gems.” On the basis of the first track ‘Lyk Dis,’ we can’t argue with that. It’s two and a half minutes of smooth but skewed soul, Anderson.Paak being just a little bit dirty over the top. You might need a cold shower after this one.
The LP will also feature the two main singles from ‘Link Up & Suede,’ er, ‘Link Up’ and ‘Suede.’
Listen to ‘Lyk Dis’ and see the tracklisting for ‘Yes Lawd!’ below.
