Real Cosby "Always (feat. Marilyn Baker)"
Based in Denver, Colorado, Real Cosby will issue his four-track Gold Braid EP later this month via the fledgling Shoeboxx label. Serving as our first taste is "Always," a soul-washed beat which comes flushed with detailed layers of miniature claps, tuned percussion blips, and tightly rolled snares. As the track's rhythmic programming evolves, so do its other elements—layers of warm, buzzing chords are joined by subtle vocal adornments, which eventually give way to small bell movements before cycling back around. Coming in at under four minutes, "Always" is a short but memorable introduction to Real Cosby, and one whose sleek production bodes well for the young talent's forthcoming Gold Braid EP, officially out on July 29.
