I genuinely thought Milo would quit the game after Who Told You To Think?!!

I'm glad he was just retiring his alias, because his new release is an absolute gem :

Yup, my Fly Pan Am show at the end of the month, and whole tour, just got pulled.. And they wouldn't have been playing to in any way big crowds. Im pleased i didn't buy a train ticket tbh.

I haven’t listened to anything really from Camu Tao. I just know of him because a lot of the songs on Aesop Rock’s album Impossible Kid talk about his death.

Yeah, that was my route into his stuff. That record is just whack though, like it has this deliberately terrible sense of humour, some of the cheapest production, but it's this entire world as well, kinda compelling and absurd. I can see there's a joke to it, I just can't tell if I'm in on it or not. LIke, what the fuck is this?

 

 

The whole record is full of weird, terrible jokes like that. The first Blair Cosby record (is it an alter ego?) was just slightly more relatable, but still full of bad jokes but then there's a song like this which is more sincere, but still daft as anything.

 

 

The whole thing is so stoned and stupid though, like it's real 3am baked as fuck staring at your computer music.

is it just me or does RTJ feel really corny these days? Idk if just my taste has changed but I cant really listen to them anymore. Even the first 2 albums I cant really get into cuz they feel dated

El-P's production has really started to annoy me lately because it feels very loud and repetitive. I'm not into the singles and a lot of the features feel forced and cringey. JU$T and ooh la la suck

I only listened to 3 once or twice, but think I like this more. Mike's verse on walking in the snow feels very apt rn. Mike on good form throughout the whole thing really

I still dig them but I don't think your take is out of line. I didn't care for rtj3 either, just felt kind of meh. Rtj2 is still my favorite as it did the immature dick swinging bravado better than anyone, but this one has good tracks. I'm still a sucker of El-P's production, still one of the best at the moment. I do sorely miss his weird shit from his solo days Like Tasmanian Pain Coaster and Flyentology. I dunno, I think they've put themselves in a bind of having to be the big dumb over the top group and have lost a lot of ability to be subtle. I'd love RTJ5 to be low key alá Massive Damage or shit High Water Music.

My favs Armand Hammer (billy woods + elucid) released SHRINES today which is incredible. Insane production, hard bars and good features



If you haven't heard their album Paraffin or woods' Hiding Places then I also suggest checking those out. Imo two of the greatest albums of all time

Both woods and Elucid have great discographies and woods is probably the best lyricist I've ever heard. If you like Aesop Rock, Jpegmafia, Open Mike Eagle, Ka, Earl Sweatshirt, Quelle Chris, Milo you should definitely check it out. The latter 3 also feature on Shrines






I could talk about these dudes literally all day

Agree with what you're saying about RTJ. Snk and Pats sum my feelings up entirely. I happened to be at two different music festivals a few years ago where they were playing (one of those being Euro Coma with Damski, Swoon and Alderetism). I remember walking past their sets on both occassions, and they're doing the exact same between-song patter, word for word, gestures the same. Just thought it was disingenuous, like they were performing at us rather than to or with us. Acting. Got the feeling it was an El-P thing. I don't have much time for his music, raps or production if I'm being honest.
