1. The Underachievers - Indigoism (Mixtape) (FREE DOWNLOAD).


    Though NYC's The Underachievers are apparently part of the same Beast Coast collective that includes Joey Bada$$ and Pro Era don't expect to hear much in the way of '90s East Coast revivalism on Indigoism - the duo's first release via Flying Lotus ' L.A.-based Brainfeeder label. The free 17-track "mixtape" - which includes both previously-released ("Gold Soul Theory") and new material - channels the influences and styles of various regions and eras without being particularly self-conscious about it. If anything it's the Flylo camp affiliation that best reflects young Ak and Issa Dash's progressive category-eschewing aesthetic ("Been a Brainfeeder way before the shit official" - they rhyme on "T.A.D.E.D."). Looking forward to giving this some more thorough listens in days to come. Listen for yourself, download and check out the tracklist below.
