What is a ‘Doomtree’ anyway? One of those Wizard of Oz trees? Well, Doomtree, you’ve done it again. The Midwest hip-hop collective’s Sims and Lazerbeak come together to kill a five-track EP. Lazerbeak kills it, slays the tracks, slices samples and puts together a gorgeous set. “The Lighthouse”, you’re looking at bongos, a receding voice and toy piano. He’ll take an lo-fi home recording and turn it into jazzy, guitar-picking experience. Last year he dropped an absolute 1st place worthy album, Legend Recognize Legend, and one of my favorite releases. Sims singing ability gets tested in Wildlife and while it’s not great, its purpose is Slug-like, a Rhymesayers sing-song chorus. Take the time to check this Doomtree release, it’s free and heavy hitting.
