Stream Young Fathers White Men Are Black Men Too
Young Fathers won the Mercury prize in 2014 for their album DEAD, but honestly the more interesting thing about them is that they’re a rap trio from Edinburgh, Scotland. Listening to previously released singles like “Shame” and “Rain Or Shine,” the closest comparison I came up with was TV On The Radio, or maybe Shabazz Palaces due to the gloomy, frenetic pace. But ‘G’ Hastings, Alloysious Massaquoi, and Kayus Bankole freely mix hip-hop with industrial noise and even crunchy Passion Pit-pop elements in a way that sounds completely their own. Their new album is called White Men Are Black Men Too and you can stream the whole thing below, a week before its release. Listen.
White Men Are Black Men Too is out 4/7 on Big Dada.
