Meanest Man Contest/Languis Split
- Words: Fred Miketa
- Label: Sneakmove
- XLR8R Rating: 6/10
This may be he first time that psyche-pop and arty hip-hop join forces on a split full-length. The sorta-Bay Area duo Meanest Man Contest carries on with a similar blend of relationship raps over spacey-yet-simple beats (present on their debut, Merit), whereas Languis pumps out oddities that sound like a codeine-tranquilized Brian Wilson covering Suicide-a shift from the poppy new wave of their Plug Research efforts. Although every song on Split is entirely dissociated from the rest of the album, both artists take great strides in pushing their individual styles to the next level.
