Every week Take Two gets a preview of new music that you might not hear anywhere else. This week we're joined by Oliver Wang, a music writer and DJ. Here are his picks:
Artist: Dame D.O.L.L.A.
Song: Run It Up
Oakland native Damian Lillard might be best known for his work on the NBA court as as one of the top guards in the league.
We listened to this song, "Run it Up."
Album: Laila’s Wisdom
Marlanna Evans, better known as Rapsody, is a rapper from Snow Hill, North Carolina. In 2015, she was given a massive push when she was the only rap featured on Kendrick Lamar's critically acclaimed album, To Pimp A Butterfly. Her new album is called, Laila's Wisdom.
Originally released on the group’s last album from 2000, York Blvd., “Vibrato’s” languid feel captures the sound of this new Light in the Attic compilation which focuses exclusively on the group’s dreamy slow-core tunes. Also look for the semi-biographical novel that accompanies it, Hadley, Lee, Lightcap by Sam Sweet.
