Earl Sweatshirt is a regular cast member on Tyler, The Creator’s sketch show Loiter Squad now, but other than that, he doesn’t seem to spend much time with his old Odd Future buddies. So feel the nostalgia here: Left Brain, a longtime Odd Future member and the production half of the duo MellowHype, has remixed “Chum,” the amazing gut-scraping single from Earl’s Doris album. And hearing Earl over those queasy synths and off-kilter drums again is enough to remind me of a time when these kids seemed poised to take over the universe, when their entire aesthetic seemed like something new. Download it below.
Doris is out 8/20 on Tan Cressida/Columbia.
