Earl Sweatshirt – I Don’t Like Shit, I Don’t Go Outside: An Album By Earl Sweatshirt (2015)

(2020 edit: This review was written several years ago, I just dug it out from the lost drafts on my old Blogger account). And the award for quickest maturing member of Odd Future goes to Earl fucking Sweatshirt. Doris has always stood apart from most of the other Odd Future stuff I’ve heard, and now this… well, this is something truly special. On the strength of “Faucet” alone, this record is fucking outstanding. The beats are stoned, drawn-out romps tinged with as much misery as they have groove; they meander through dreamy synths that are the audible equivalent to watching the world’s most beautiful sunset whilst being manically depressed and completely numb to it’s beauty. Yeah.
