GODS WISDOM - I ONLY TRUST MYSELF - MOMMY DUST
I ONLY TRUST MYSELF is the latest missive from Western Massachusetts ambassador/rapper/vocalist/producer/ provocateur/general enigma GODS WISDOM. A prelude to his debut LP, I ONLY TRUST MYSELF introduces the young artist's arrival with nihilistic, caustically humorous intent, presenting a wholly new amalgam of rap, metal, noise, and gooey psychedelia.
Blending lyrical sincerity and absurdity to a confusing and sometimes-overwhelming extreme, I ONLY TRUST MYSELF's four tracks frame the artist's work in a starkly macabre fashion. The title track throbs and lurches forward on a heavily-dubbed and improvised-upon flip of an Electric Wizard sample, while NAIL and GROWN TO BURN are frenetic, trap-derived hip-hop tracks at heart, caked with sooted layers of intense metal/noise overtones and comically dark topical obsessions. MORE SELF, an instrumental incorporating pieces of tracks recorded when Gods Wisdom was still in high school, is fractal beat-noise that destroys and rebuilds itself according to own its pretzel logic.
