Kingdom Crumbs is the latest limb on the great tree that is Seattle collective Cloud Nice. We’ve mentioned them briefly in the past, but as of today, their self-titled album is out into the wilds of the interweb, and it’s time you heard it.
Made up of a significant percentage of the Cloud Nice team – Tay Sean, Jarv Dee, Jerm and Mikey Nice – Kingdom Crumbs bridges the classic canon of boom bap hip hop and 21st century cloud rap. That means stabbing synth bass, big ambient washes, and snares that crack just so.
It’s rock solid from start to finish, with a consistent sound that doesn’t get stuck in any of the ruts that can plague album length releases in this interweb age. In some ways, it’s reminiscent of the 10.4 Rog/Good Sin collaboration “Late” – another Cloud Nice export and one of the last local releases to hit with such consistency.
This is music worth paying for. You should do it.
