|Atmosphere –God Loves Ugly
Pre- This is one of these indie rap outfits I am supposed to like.
Post- I am whelmed. Not Over or Under, just straight up whelmed.
Overall- I’ll agree with the artist, he’s a “so-so writer”. No lyrics stand out as particularly clever or “turribel”. The music seems sampled from either Sting’s or Robbie Roberson’s first solo albums with one of three canned beats. For the most part they avoid mainstream rap clichés but stay firmly in Park Slope coffee shop open mic poetry night territory.
