A few months back,

NYC artist

Slauson Malone

released the 20

song project

A Quiet Farewell.

Featuring tracks

from 2016 to 2018,

the soulful and sample

heavy project

blends scraping samples

and dusty loops

with occasional bars.

Crackling vinyl

with bounce.

It’s full

of familiar names

(Medhane, Maxo,

Pink Siifu, Caleb Giles)

and is a project

that demands rewinds,

especially now

that it’s hot outside.
