This is one of those albums that's a must-listen in order, front to back. It's a 16-track project but only half could be considered standalone songs. In between, 30-second interludes and bubbly electronic samples weave together the singles into a complete work. Sutton shows off his vocal chops in i know what im doing* as he seamlessly shifts from rap to sung melodies to spoken word, often times within the same track. What's probably most impressive about this up-and-coming artist is the range and quality of the underlying production. Thumping bass, groovy 808's and bright synths punctuate his debut album and cement Sutton as a talented artist to keep your eye on in coming years!
Bonus Content: His youtube channel is simply awesome. He does breakdowns of popular tracks, offers challenges to his fans, and even has a few music videos of his own. My favorite by far is his video recreating Kanye's "Wolves" by using samples of actual wolves. Check it out here.
