Boomkat Product Review:
So here it is; the track that catapulted Tyler, The Creator (and his collective Odd Future Wolf Gang Kill ‘em All) into the mainstream, thanks to a stunning appearance on late night chat show Jimmy Fallon. Surrounded by garden gnomes and featuring a Linda Blair (circa Exorcist) lookalike in-between them, Tyler and Hodgy Beats ran through the track with an energy unseen in rap for years. These suburban LA kids have more punk spirit than most punk artists you could care to name, and when Mos Def emerged after the set screaming “SWAG!”, it was clear that their path is laid out. Let’s just hope they don’t lose the spark – for now we’ve got ‘Sandwitches’ to remind us just how arresting rap music can be. Highly recommended.
