Father & his Awful Records brethren Archibald Slim are plotting their joint album Dionysus, slated to arrive sometime in 2016. Last night they liberated a new track from the album called "In State Outta State."
Father is known for the straightforward, strangely hypnotic quality of his voice, and here he shows off some impressive multisyllabic rhymes on the hook. This chilled out, flabby electric piano is well-suited for his singular style, as it is for Archibald Slim and their labelmate Ethereal.
"In State Outta State" comes off the back of Father's cover of Mya's "Best of Me." Which are you feeling more?
Just making sure the rent get paid
Same shit, just a different day
In her throat, in state
Outta state, interstate
In a gaze, interlaced
Hands in her lace
