After finding an opportunity in a normal conversation with Mitch, of Giant Gorilla Dog Thing, to quote back his own lyrics to him, it dawned on me that I’ve spent way too much time listening to their new album to NOT put together any words out there about it. And that I’m a total fangirl nerd sometimes. (Not a new realization).
I’ve been listening to this album on the daily ever since I got my hands on a copy of the 2XLP back on the release date March 28th. HORSE is available in both vinyl and digital formats courtesy Pig Food Records, and also is available at Fuzz Records if you haven’t picked up a copy yet. After GGDT worked on this album for the past year and a half, maybe two years, I’m fairly confident in saying that they are beyond happy to take a little break from listening to this sucker and to finally be able to let others in on listening to their beats, raps and secrets.
Quite often these days it seems as though artists on both an independent and mainstream level are too quick to release their music for a plethora of reasons and I’m glad that HORSE is not an example of that. Much respect to GGDT for releasing their album when the time was right, and for accidentally-on-purpose creating what will easily become my favorite spring, summer and maybe even winter, soundtrack. I mean, hell, I’m still listening to ERIC (which is totally free and amazing if you haven’t heard) on a regular basis.
In short, my friends are GREAT at what they do.
