I covered DUDES a while back, so returning to the San Diego outfit and their stunning EP 'NARCISSISTS ANONYMOUS' was absolutely fantastic! The group are set to drop another EP in the future, but whether or not 'C.O.S.M.I.C.' will appear on it has yet to be decided. I personally wouldn't mind, because it's a brilliant track! Three and a half minutes of sample infused hip hop, laced with surreal synths, funky chillwave soundscapes and a smattering of beautiful space-age instability. A glorious chaos, offset by interludes of the most serene sensibility. The samples at the start open 'C.O.S.M.I.C.' wondrously, before a passionately angry voice demands a rewind! It is a deliberately humorous introduction, and one that is perfect at doing so. In laying down this less than serious ethos, the whole track retains a similar tone, relaxed and calm and strangely soothing. It's nothing short of outstanding, so stream it above and download it for free via the widget, or by way of their Bandcamp here!
