Modill - Modill (2009)

Modill deserves props. Their debut Midnight Green is one of my favorite records ever for its self-conscious lyrics, and cannabis-induced atmosphere. The self-titled successor which you see here is an idiosyncratic LP that paints an abstract portrait of MC RacecaR. From start to finish, monsieur Domina brings you into his world where's he's constantly shifting between optimism, and self-doubt. Behind the lyrics K-Kruz produces a palette of experimental soul. It's more understated than the loud boom-bap on Midnight Green, and I think it really suits the change in style. This is one of the best albums of 09, don't miss out.

1. Back Once Again
2. One Track Mind
3. Heated Preposition
