Jazz/Electronic trio BADBADNOTGOOD from Toronto, Ontario are releasing their highly anticipated label debut, III today. Having worked with popular alternative rappers such as Tyler, The Creator, Earl Sweatshirt and MF Doom, it is no surprise that this release is surrounded by a considerable amount of buzz. It is also their first album that is entirely comprised of original material.
This album is both haunting and brilliant. Having given it multiple listens since it dropped today, I can safely say that this album will be one of my top albums of 2014. You’d be doing a disservice to yourself if you at least didn’t check them out to see what all the fuss is about. If you are so inclined, also take a look at this post from 2012, where we talked about how the bands second album, BBNG2, was an album that you should hear.
