Today's song of the day is brought to you by Glen Boothe of Knxwledge. When I first heard Boothe's music, I was totally blown away and I became determined to find every scrap of music he had ever produced. Like Adult Swim bumps, Boothe's music is short (too short IMO), soulful and sweet. Somehow he packs a tremendous amount of feeling into tracks that last only two to three minutes.
A native of Philadelphia, Booth released his first solo album, "Klouds," in April 2010. It is that album that started it all for me. The track above is #6 on the Klouds album.
In August 2011, Booth produced the "Old Klouds" album which is comparatively longer and consists of 25 tracks with each generally under three minutes in length. The track above is #15 on that album.
In March 2011, Booth released the "Mango" EP which has four tracks and is about six minutes long in total. My favorite track is below. It is the final track on the Mango EP.
Booth's latest album is "togethrniss_b_side" and it came out last week! It's pretty f*cking amazing in my humble opinion. Full of soulful, jazzy hip hop goodness. Give it a listen!
