You may recognize Austin Crute from Childish Gambino's FX series Atlanta.
He made an appearance on the show's fifth episode, an episode centered practically around him as he took on the role of a black Justin Bieber.
Crute, a musician when he's not on screen, is packing in a lot more talent than the show let on (aside from some impeccable acting chops), and last week, following a string of low-key releases, the Atlanta native unveiled his sophomore project Deutschland, a genre-bending work of art that puts Austin Crute's versatility at the forefront.
An artfully-documented chronicle of the battle between faith and flesh, the project comes complete with hypnotic production and enchanting harmonies to match.
Produced and written entirely by Crute, my only critique of the 5-track effort is that it ended much too soon.
