Kid Smpl – Silo Tear
Seattle-based producer Kid Smpl caught our ears in 2012 with his intricate, free-flowing layering of melancholic sound textures. With a sonic vision already fully formed early on in his career, the producer continues to add to his template on his new release for Hush Hush.
The Silo Tear EP is arguably Kid Smpl’s most palpable effort yet. Apparent on the title track, the producer weaves in more abrasive rhythmical and textural elements than what we’ve heard from him thus far. Washes of noise add to the dramatic feel introduced by somber synths and sorrowful vocal samples, drawing connections to the work of Burial just as they to do that of fellow NYC Academy grad Evian Christ. Do yourself a favour and listen to this now. Silo Tear is out on May 5 via Hush Hush.
