Members of the Grammy-nominated hip-hop collective The Internet are striking out on their own in a big way this year. Earlier this month, co-founder Syd issued her debut album, Fin; now, guitarist Steve Lacy is prepping his own first-ever solo LP.

A bit of a departure from The Internet’s Odd Future stylings, Lacy’s original material fuses old school soul with lo-fi, jangly rock. The hybrid sounds a little odd at first glance, I know, but just think of Mac DeMarco kicking it with some Motown records. Interestingly enough, Lacy’s been a big fan of the jizz jazzer for some time now:
