Share anything that could loosely be described as "sound collage"

Thread inspired by a really great album from last year I finally got around to listening to:


On Monday, September 11, Standing On The Corner dropped their newest mixtape, Red Burns. A departure from their more traditionally musical and album-formatted debut, Red Burns is an hour-long mixtape that’s sounds and feels more like a meticulously compiled sonic-scrapbook documenting a tumultuous moment in time. In sound and in sentiment, it embodies the stuck, frustrated feeling that young black and brown people in the world often face, particularly in today’s political climate — one of “impending doom,” says Escobar, and an “obsession with the end of the world as we know it.” Though led by Escobar with production from Marsalis, Red Burns is a product of collaboration with SOTC’s immediate friends and creative community, both in instrumentation and in inspiration. “There are friends who don’t necessarily play anything on the album,” Escobar shares, “but their influence, it comes through and it’s infinitely important.”

Sonically, Red Burns is comprised of many things: a handful of free jazz and rap-influenced original songs and compositions (some slow and steady and featuring SOTC’s signature warped vocals), which are sometimes interrupted by either cacophonous or complementary samples and drum machine mishmashes. There are also several seemingly archival samples — a poem about city blocks, snippets of radio you might pick up while walking past open Brooklyn windows — and a few impeccably voiced skits, that further paint a picture of Escobar’s life in New York City.

Visually, the project’s website serves to contextualize the mixtape with a collection of thoughtfully selected GIFs and memes.“There’s the one GIF on the page of that kid throwing a tantrum,” says Escobar. “If we had to choose a thesis for the [mixtape], it was that kid.” Taken as a whole, Red Burns is a journey, and it’s meant to feel like one. As Escobar explains, for him personally, making it was “a process of responding to the world in a way. Everybody’s just trying to figure out how to react. Sometimes it comes out in this weird ass album.”


Also, my all-time favorite:
