22 Nov Mick Jenkins – or more; the anxious
HOLY SH*T MICK JENKINS JUST DROPPED A TAPE! AND IT’S NOT EVEN HIS ALBUM – CAN YOU BELIEVE IT!?
Here’s what Mr. Jenkins had to say about this surprise drop:
“Or More is a project series involving musical ideas and concepts that are currently inspiring the album’s creation process. As creatives we live in a world of time constraints imposed by illusive industry standards, anxious demands of appreciators, or even our own self reflections. #OrMore is a smaller context of this larger pool of thoughts.. a world of exploration removed from the confines of a particular method. Its my way of sharing the beauty in Indecisiveness. Sometimes we have to make music to locate the true music within our being. The first hones in on the ANXIOUS.”
That’s some deep sh*t. Ashamed to say – I’ve been an appreciator who has anxiously demanded music. Yes, in a more playful way, but you can’t really convey tone through text so Mick has me thinking. Perhaps I should just trust the process and hold my screams from the balcony. Definitely will marinate on that.
Anyway, or more; the anxious is a fantastic body of work. If this is what is inspiring the album then Mick is going to be at 200% potential it sounds like. Better find your life jackets, we’ll be drowning very soon. Thank you Mr. Jenkins.
