While most of us were sound asleep dreaming of the unstoppable Steph Curry, Los Angeles MC Earl Sweatshirt used last night to go on a bit of a sharing frenzy. The Odd Future affiliate uploaded not one, not two, but three new tracks to SoundCloud: “Wind In My Sails”, “bary”, and “SKRT SKRT”.
“Wind In My Sails” is a laid-back, old soul kind of joint; in the description for the track, Earl Sweatshirt gives props to frequent collaborator The Alchemist (Action Bronson, Eminem), Flying Lotus, and “Otis the god”, who Stereogum notes may be a reference to Madlib. Meanwhile, both “bary” and “SKRT SKRT” are instrumental numbers; of particular note is the sample of Kanye West’s “Barry Bonds” on “bary”.
Stream all three tracks below.
