Adrian Younge Declares "Winter Is Here" w/ An Ice Cold Groove
The road to Adrian Younge‘s Something About April sequel has been a fruitful one. The LA-based producer’s producer first graced us with the premiere of the album’s lead-off single “Sittin’ By The Radio,” then RZA gave “Hands Of God” his own personal touch. And today, Younge has relinquished the a clip for the album’s latest single “Winter Is Here,” timed perfectly with the arrival of actual cold weather.
It’s another clinic of the man’s hallmark grizzled soul palette, leaning heavy on the nostalgic feels with effected guitar strums, relentless bass fills and a hook that is full-float and reverie-inducing, lead by the haunting howls frequent collaborators Karolina and Loren Oden, declaring wholly and undoubtedly that “Winter Is Here” with an ice cold groove. And if these first three cuts are any indication of what’s to come, Something About April will, no doubt, be the record you’ve been waiting on. Put your eyes and ears to the latest from Adrian Younge below and pre-order your copy of his Something About April II LP on iTunes today ahead of its official release next Friday, January 22nd via Linear Labs.
