If you stopped by Potholes this past March, then you probably saw my gushing post on Atlanta-based newcomer KeithCharles Spacebar’s jazzy debut, BeforeCommonEra. The album played like a blunted tribute to the Native Tongues through the eyes of a talented young dude who sounds like he has one hell of a future ahead of him. The same can be said for his cohort and fellow ATL resident Will. As his latest project’s title implies, Stoned In A Slang ups the blunted ante you heard on BeforeCommonEra while referencing that uber-chill late ’80s/early ’90s sound so many of us adore. There are also hints of NYC-esque street rap (“Point A” and “Shoutout (Theme Song Pt. 2)”), Bay Area hip-hop (“N-N-Out”), and Southern-fried jazz-hop (“Do Somethin’”).
