I’ll be honest, I had to skip the first song. But I did hear a few tracks that I thought were cool. Therefore I unleash them to you all for ruling. Check out the brief background on The Lower Class and let us know what you think, areas to improve, etc.
The Texas collective, The Lower Class team up with blogs Oh So Fresh and Apple Juice Break to release their much anticipated street album Wingfield. Since their last project, Flight of Ideas, The Lower Class has slowly garnered viral recognition for their patented sound which can aptly be described as a contemporary take on indie sound. Wingfield brings back producer imaGenius’ eclectic sound mixed with a new found focus, emphasizing on jazz and soul samples. Incorporating themes from Tennessee Williams’ play The Glass Menagerie, the Lower Class give their insight on nostalgia, escapism, dynamics of relationships and abandonment. It’s this unabashed description of society’s most taboo themes that makes the Lower Class more than just another group of musicians, they push musical boundaries. With the group’s first feature, singer Louis Alvin, they bring in a new vocal dynamic while keeping it limited to showcase each rappers lyrical potential.
