|L'Orange & Kool Keith Time? Astonishing! Limited Vinyl LP
"The man may be out of place and time, but there are few artists as spectacularly weird as Keith" - Vice "L'Orange builds a gilded stage from a clutter of film, soul and synth samples, refurbishing the worn 9th Wonder/early-Kanye warped soul template" - Pitchfork L'Orange & Kool Keith set out to make something absurd, yet traditional, putting the Ultramagnetic MC in a position to rap over beats that fans have wanted to hear him on for years. Joining the team is cast of legendary rappers to create a diversity of talent. The album is a loose tale of a time traveller, moving only forward through time, settling in the future and living as he would normally. The album seems to imply that adventure is only a step away, but never seems to reach that point. It's an abstract and absurdist approach to working with an absurdist MC.
