Paper Tiger - Rogue PlanetWah Wah 45s
Paper Tiger returns with their third lp. "Rogue Planet" picks up where "Blast Off" left off. That means more left of center sci-fi beats coinciding with their engaging brand of hip-hop. There's much to savor from this project whether it's rapper Raphael Attar displaying his lyrical dexterity on bangers such as "Lullaby" and the jovial "Old". There's notable guest appearances from Steve Spacek on "The Cycle"."Bioluminescent" features blissful vocals from Noya Rao bandmate Olivia Bhattacharjee. "Slinky" and "Posture Poseurs" are two of several notable instrumentals to keep your head on a constant nod. The Leeds based band find the right balance between electronica and soulful instrumentation and are growing with each release. It all adds up to a superb record that provides immediate satisfaction.
