En route to developing one of the country's best independent record labels, Stones Throw owner (and hip-hop producer) Peanut Butter Wolf has signed several idiosyncratic artists, from the mysterious beat genius Madlib to soul polymaths such as Dudley Perkins, Georgia Anne Muldrow and Aloe Blacc. His roster teems with talent and the Chrome Children compilation, released in conjunction with cable network Adult Swim, can barely contain them. Muldrow's haunting "Simply a Joy" sits uncomfortably against po-faced MC MED and his "All I Know." Perkins' loopy "Wassup World" transitions into Percee P featuring Madlib and Quasimoto's droll "Raw Heat." Such variety makes Chrome Children a bumpy listening experience. But its many standouts, from Roc C's dedication to Jay Dee on "Movin'" to Koushik's airy "None in Mind," demonstrate the depth of Stones Throw's winning roster. ****
