Loco Motion :: Notes Floats Keeps It Going With ‘FULL STEAM AHEAD’

a2898617234_10

With two-plus decades in the rap game, it’s nuts how consistently fresh that Notes Floats is able to continue to be with each new release.  His latest project, FULL STEAM AHEAD, has all the earmarks that we’ve come to know and love from a Notes Floats project : funk-laden production with a quirky edge, humorous and witty lines with an acute sharpness to them, a focus that is not lost in the humor, and quality guest verses, this time from the likes of Gorilla Monk, and Devo.  This album also has a running theme of trains throughout, including a free-form sonic, poetic exploration to close out the proceedings.  If you dug the Triple Dang Snap single, then buckle up for a memorable ride.

Humble Bragging :: Notes Keeps The Heat Coming With ‘TRIPLE DANG SNAP’

artworks-000476826741-3e6mdu-t500x500

Notes Floats is at it again, and all of us old-school Austin hip-hop heads can get properly hype about it.  FULL STEAM AHEAD is apparently in the works, and if TRIPLE DANG SNAP is any indication of what’s in store, it’s going to be another win for Notes, the losing champion.  Notes does what he does best on this one, spitting humble brags and dropping properly dope references over a Gorilla Monk beat.  This one is catchy as hell, hitting all the right tones and attitudes to keep the gears turning and your head nodding.  Dig this one and dig it good, share it around, and leave a comment.
