Marlowe (L'Orange & Solemn Brigham) - Marlowe 2 LP (blue + white vinyl)
Marlowe (L'Orange & Solemn Brigham) - Marlowe 2 LP (Mello Music Group/USA)
The records arrived with a small ding on the upper right corner so I have marked down the LPs a dollar.
We said in 20202: Marlowe is producer L'Orange and rapid fire rapper Solemn Brigham. They paint exciting, high action film noir that unfolds like a soundtrack for a Jim Jarmusch film that needs to be made. Important social commentary thrives under a bed of extraordinary music sculpted from a crate digger's dream. High art hip-hop, this record belongs in a museum as much as it does a record store.
(also a new documentary film about L'orange called The Mad Writer is coming soon!)
L'Orange & Solemn Brigham are Marlowe
Marlowe is a collaborative alt-rap project from North Carolina-based hip-hop producer L'Orange and rapper Solemn Brigham. Their unique blend of quick-fire vocals and dusty breakbeats is most well-known on tracks such as "Lost Arts" and "Tales From The East." The project came together in 2018 with the intent of marrying Brigham's lyrics concerning social commentary, police brutality, and poverty with L'Orange's thudding beats and crackling vinyl samples to achieve a new, refreshing take on hip-hop in modern times. Marlowe 2 seeks to continue that legacy.
