Time Wharp/Nomen Novum offer up two essential listens

Posted By on Tue, Jan 24, 2012 at 8:41 AM

A couple pieces of essential Atlanta listening showed up on the Internet yesterday, first and foremost being Time Wharp’s new BLK EP.

When the first teaser from this round of songs, “yrLyf,” surfaced at the top of the year, Crib Notes reported on mastermind Patrick Loggins’ excursions into ...

“… a darker, more spacious sound that builds upon the strains of house music that have been rubbing off on him lately. It's not club music, but it bears the influence of 808 beats colliding with sampled, clipped, and recontextualized R&B vocals. Loops and words are pieced together in repetitive, vulgar, sexually charged mantras, turning the micro genres of ghetto-house and juke on their side.”

Now, less than a month later, here it is, the BLK EP, in all of its cool and cut-up glory.

Secondly, Nomen Novum's third full-length, If You Look For It, It’s There, materialized as a free download yesterday as well, boasting 10 new songs from the mind of David Norbery.

Stay tuned for a proper review coming later on this week.

In the meantime, go ahead and get the whole album.
