Following several single releases and an EP titled ‘A Little Late’, Carner has finally dropped his first full length LP. Featuring hit songs like ‘Ain’t Nothing Changed’ and ‘No CD’, The album expresses a rich soundscape of amplified hip hop samples and prosperous instrumentation that combine to compliment the unbelievable lyricism the South London rapper offers.
The new material is up with the bangers Ben Coyle-Larner produces so often, my personal favourites are ‘Mrs C’ and ‘Damselfly’, which features fellow up and coming musician ‘Tom Misch’. The track’s powerful and honest lyrics portray Carner’s personal woes and vulnerabilities but in an intricate and fascinating way.
I have said this time and time again but Loyle Carner is the most important UK rap artist on the scene right now and this album will be one to only rise in popularity throughout 2017, his live sets are just as good as his music so if you have a spare £20 go and see him on his up coming tour.
