Towkio: .WAV Theory

From Stereogum:
Towkio is the next on for Chicago’s Save Money, the crew that gave us Chance The Rapper and Vic Mensa. We’ve heard the jubilant gospel-jingle of “Heaven Knows” and post-cocaine downer “Reflections” and now his mixtape .Wav Theory is available to stream in full. Save Money always rolls deep, so there’s a Vic Mensa cameo on here, a few from Chance and Donnie Trumpet of the Social Experiment, especially on production. Kaytranada, Lido, Eryn Allen Kane, and Leather Corduroys all show up too, but this show is unequivocally Towkio’s to steal. “Free Your Mind” hits the same joyous, golden notes that endeared “Heaven Knows” to me, and “Break You Off” reaches a shivery, existential paranoia that it takes real urgency to pull off. The tape is solid front to back, so download or listen 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!
