For The KickDrums, having a short attention span isn’t necessarily a bad thing. In fact, this Brooklyn-by-way-of-Ohio duo have made their entire careers so far on this musical ADD mentality. Alex Fitts and Matt Pentilla have already spent the last five years producing songs for artists like Kid Cudi and 50 Cent. But online, the guys are actually better known for their free mixtapes that they release on their website (the tapes are so good, we still have their Coachella edition on repeat, even though the festival’s long gone).
Now the pair is taking their genre-defying mentality to their debut album. Meet Your Ghost is stocked with fuzzy undertones, pop melodies, orchestral interludes, and more- all wrapped around their signature hip hop spine. In other words, this nine song package of original material is a genre-defying trip that’s so catchy you’ll want to spread the word-and the music- immediately. And the best part is, you can. Although Meet Your Ghost won’t be released until June 28, we’ve got your first listen of the entire album. Check it out below- and who knows, you might be able to trick yourself into thinking it’s still the weekend.
