Mac Miller - In The Morning (feat. Syd & Thundercat)
I can only apologize, I’ve been super slow with this the last few weeks. Christmas happened, as did the deluge of food and alcohol and family and friends and fun. I’ve been neglectful, I know, but 2014 promises to bring more and more joy and jams for the next 12 months, and if it’s anything like last year then we’re in for quite a treat. I was planning on musing over 2013’s breadth of music in a few posts, but I may have missed the boat somewhat… We’ll see.
I’ll start off 2014, then, with a rather relaxed number. It’s late, we’re all still recovering from NYE carnage and considering not drinking for a while, to see if our bodies still like us. So what better way to zone out than over some of Mac’s souped up weed raps over some hazy, blunted out beats. He’s come a long way, lyrically and technically, over the last few years. And the last minute or so of Thundercat’s astonishing bass noodling is a truly space-age serenade.
Happy New Year folks, here’s to 2014.
