I was a little skeptical at first over this latest Anticon release, as you know by now, they've gone a completely different direction these days as a music label, releasing less hip hop and mostly indie rock and electronica alongside veteran members of the roster. And I'll admit sometimes I don't always get to do an extensive bio and research every single release that comes my way, so this became another ''hearing is believing'' album that I fell in love with instantly! I'm very much into the lo-fi beats and production by Odd Nosdam and the throwback spaced-out, electro boogie hip hop that James Pants has brought back and I feel Tobacco is a perfect marriage of the two! Heavy on retro sounds like synths and keyboards, 80's-like in essence, making it both cool, funky and a little corny, while still nodding your head to the heavy, scratchy, poppy drums and loops and featuring some occasional scattered and haunting vocals. I don't know if anybody remembers a little known group by the name of God Lives Underwater but this is very similar without the industrial's an obscure reference so I don't suppose it matters...but still, it's that ''old becomes new again'' sound that stimulates the deepest parts of my brain the most, like a needle prodding it before everything starts moving in slow motion and I get all nostalgic. Featuring a guest appearance by Aesop Rock.
