I can remember the first time I heard Milo. I was doing the washing up in the relatively grotty rental my fiancé and I occupied at the time. The Youtube algorithms had randomly selected Souvenir from So The Flies Don’t Come and I was halted in my tracks. The hazy, gorgeous production, effortlessly dripping out of the speakers, the opening bars ‘It’s the lazy theologian…’ . Philosophy, noodles, community, culture, literature, post-rock, laundry, white fans…half spoken-word, slam poetry delivery. I hadn’t heard hip-hop like this and I was immediately pulled in. The washing up water grew cool as I made my way through So The Flies Don’t Come twice in a row. My journey from convert to Milo fanboy was swift, aggressive and bloody brilliant.
Middle Blue – Weird Funk in Small Bars (via Dillon)
This is the first live album from this band(recorded just before the first Pandemic Lockdown) and when i say live, you can hear conversation during the tracks.
