Skweeky Watahfawls, Johnny Ciggs, & Fan Ran - See Us on the Dance Floor
Those dirty dudes from Gritty City Records are back with a new mixtape, and it’s loaded with the usual amount of trife amongst some killer beats. Johnny Ciggs, Skweeky Watahfawls, and Fan Ran jam it out on the dance floor with this new project. Occasional “found sounds” and spoken word samples make this album feel extra casual, as the intros are usually full of conversation snippets (that usually you wouldn’t talk about near, say, your mom).
What the folks at Gritty City prove is that the art of collaboration is not dead. Instead of individuals laying down their tracks separately and probably not even interacting in the studio, these guys play it like Biggie with some real back and forth spittin and layers of vocals. Check out “Tijuana Snow Cone” for some real life lessons on what age a chick has to turn for them to lose interest. The song title seems like it could be a nasty sexual activity mixed with blow, but it certainly should exist. Hear more about getting strange on the dance floor in “That Ol’ Drunk Shit,” which initially promises to bring the Sabbath. And the tune is pretty dark in tone and theme, but it ain’t no stoner metal.
