midcity

Submitted for the approval of the Midnight Society...
Last week clipping released their debut LP, midcity. If you haven't caught on to clipping yet, what makes this trio so fantastic and unique is the way that producers William Hutson and Jonathan Snipes use noise and found sound to construct abstract beats, which rapper Daveed Diggs lets loose over with blistering animosity. The group seeks to create music that sounds as harsh as the environment we live in, and they succeed in this fairly depressing attempt. Times are bleak, but maybe they always have been; and clipping is certainly making the best of troubling days by creating a pretty stellar work of art from circumstance with midcity.
