Don Lifted – Light Figure

I shared a track from Don Lifted earlier this month which I really liked, but I wasn’t quite prepared for how much I would enjoy his album, 325i, which landed last week. Releases like this are pretty much the entire reason I started this blog – to support music from insanely talented artists that might otherwise go unnoticed. Don Lifted definitely falls into that category – aside from a very positive Fader feature I’ve seen very little promo for the album, but it’s fucking brilliant – a hazy, understated, atmospheric delight that incorporates elements of soul, hip-hop, indie rock and plenty more besides. Light Figure stands out for me due its heavy melancholic, yearning vibe, but it’s absolutely worth giving the entire album your attention.

Don Lifted – Brain Fluid

The latest from rising Memphis artist Don Lifted is a moody rap cut based around themes of sexual and gender multiplicity, desire and vulnerability, and according to the artist written from “a moment of extreme longing for something that didn’t exist and I feared never would and what it would be like if the moment was presented to me.” That’s a whole lot of double (triple?) negatives that I haven’t quite got my head around, but suffice to say it’s a very fine, evocative piece of work.
