Kid Koala Your Mom's Favorite DJ
- Words: Scott Thill
- Label: Ninja Tune
Humor is everything, as Kid Koala has proven in the past. But so is riffage, something Your Mom's Favorite DJ possesses in abundance compared to its funnier predecessors. The result? A sizzling jam, especially on the three smoking crunchers from his new Seattle project Slew ("Test 1," "Test 2," and "Test 3"), which drop fiery blues-hop like sonic hammers. Meanwhile, the mournful piano of "Things'll Be Good Again" keeps the CD‘s vibe airy and seamless, just the way true-school hip-hop likes it. One of the baddest releases of the year so far.
