Req Car Paint Scheme
- Words: Brion Paul
- Label: Warp
As Brooklynites in mesh trucker caps continue to make odder and odder showy hip-hop joints, there's something more alluringly unnerving in the insular loping clatter of Req. With no shortage of releases over the years for myriad labels, Car Paint Scheme comes across achingly fresh. Album opener Runout Scratches" seduces with its hypnotic swirling haze of an entrance to Req's world. What follows are all sorts of hip-hop spinouts, from lyrical inventiveness with Kid Acne on "Style Mentorz" to some old school disco hip-hop on "Train Jam." Roll that jalopy's windows down and rock this Car Paint Scheme.
