Better Living Through Music: Tobacco

Tobacco, a one-time member of Black Moth Super Rainbow, has been issuing electro-influenced hip-hop albums for the last six years. And his pending release, Ultima II Massage, has been trickling out onto the Internet over the last several weeks, track by track.

The latest cut to make it our way, "Father Sister Berzerker," which was initially posted at The Fader, maintains the producer's clear affinity for synthetic sounds, while adhering to a strict 4/4 time signature. Just like the work offered up on his Anticon-released recordings, "Father Sister Berzerker" comes off sounding like what folks in the 1980s would have recorded if asked to presage future developments in hip-hop. So, pretty good.
