California native Duckwrth’s “Well Spoken” puts his best qualities on display, blending his measured charisma with a particular knack for self-deprecating reflection and a casually adventurous ear for beats. It’s a combination well matched by its simple video—a clip smartly focusing on the Los Angeles-born rapper’s engaging performance and slyly nodding to the supernatural (particularly suggesting the intergalactic perils that might be awaiting outside your door each day).

If you happen to find yourself in Oakland this weekend, catch a free exhibit of Duckwrth’s work as a graphic designer and a performance of new songs at the Machina Artfest.
