Mixtape: The Child Of Lov – “Crying Thunder”

The Child Of Lov’s self-titled debut album, which just happens to feature DOOM and Damon Albarn, is out May 6, and today the Amsterdam based artist has released a cheeky five track mixtape called Crying Thunder. With four original tracks, and a cover of The Beatles’ “Helter Skelter,” it’s a skewed, psychedelic quarter of an hour journey into Cole Williams’ world, where dusty hip-hop thump, soul, and R&B collide in a wilfully weird melange of sounds and textures.

Listen to the mixtape below, making sure you stick around for the spaced-out lurch of the final track “Serious,” and check out a couple of songs from the forthcoming album here.
