The Cool Kids - Freak City
First off, I hope you had a happy Memorial Day. (You remembered the real reason we were all celebrating, right? Respect to everyone who’s served and is serving.) But if you were stuck inside due to some seriously terrible weather, at the very least you’ll be able to feel some real summertime vibes on the first leak off The Cool Kids’ next project with a title that brings Myrtle Beach/Las Vegas/Panama City spring break to mind. Freak City is about as original as the rest of the Cool Kids archive, with Mikey Rocks and Chuck Inglish doing their creative murmuring over an entertaining - yet exquisitely short - track that Inglish himself produced (along with Old Young). The Kids always have original lyrics, and this time around is no exception, as they drop lines like “I’m a Mayweather jab, you’re a slap on the hand.” If you liked getting weird with this track, be sure to go out and nab their latest project, Tacklebox, set to be released Monday night.
