Label: Unsigned

On ‘Simple’, Texas rapper/producer Sheph has made something simply perfect. The track begins in the bridge of a Tame Impala track; a spaced out psychedelic jam that swirls in a many coloured Brownian motion. Then Sheph’s simple singing style slices through the song, with lyrics filled with post-punk persnicketiness (“I can walk over and talk to you, and maybe grab your phone/Sitting there and wondering, who’s gonna take you home”). Touches of organ and far out synths add Connan Mockasin vibes before an extended jam plays the track out.
