Track of the day: Danny Brown : ODB

Danny Brown - "ODB" video

Everyone’s favourite foul-mouthed fly guy Danny Brown returns on September 30 with Old, the follow-up to 2011’s excellent XXX, and we at Foam Hands couldn’t be more excited; the album features guest spots from ASAP Rocky, Schoolboy Q, Freddie Gibbs, Charli XCX and Purity Ring, with production courtesy of Fools Gold Records boss A-Trak, Rustie and Skywlkr among others, but to be honest it could consist entirely of the Detroit MC rapping acapella and it would probably still be one of the most entertaining records of the year. The title of the Paul White-produced “ODB” might simply be a coded advertisement for the album (“Old: Danny Brown“), but with lyrics like “Just a dirty old man/ With a pill on his tongue and his dick in his hand” it feels more like an homage of sorts, the New Dirty Bastard picking up the late Wu Tang Clan rapper’s degenerate baton and setting off running; check out the trippy, Ruffmercy-directed video below.

My name is Michael Dix; I'm a decade or so past being down with the kids, but to me new music never gets old. Apparently I like music that sounds like faulty kitchen appliances and ritual slaughter; really I just like what I like, whether that happens to be indie, pop, punk, hip hop, metal, electronica, Afrobeat or jazz. Follow me on Twitter @FoamHandsBlog to receive notifications of new posts and the occasional random brain-fart, and please share links wherever you can. Enjoy!
