  • Artist: Jared Evan
  • Track: Falling Down
  • Producer: !llmind
  • Album: Back and Fourth

You know how some people get freaked out when different foods on their plate touch? I have the opposite philosophy: if two things taste good side by side, they're bound to taste even better heaped in a pile. (Yeah, I don't get invited to many fancy dinner parties.) Freestyle alumJared Evan knows what I'm talking about; though mixtape cut Falling Down is drastically different in mood than his last offering, the garage-rock-infused In Love With You, it finds him once again mixing disparate influences into a tasty musical casserole. Booth fave !llmind mans the boards, cooking up a Radiohead-esque blend of guitar arpeggios and moody synths as Evan undergoes a little mic therapy. Switching between sung vocals and (on the bridge) hard-hitting flows, he paints a vivid portrait of one of those days when nothing seems to be going quite right. While dark, this rap/grunge/pop/alt-rock concoction packs a cathartic punch that'll leave fans of emotional, genre-blending jams hungry for more. If that sounds like you, be sure to grab a copy of Back and Fourth, the mixtape prelude to Evan's full-length debut, when it hits the net in early 2011.
