It’s been a minute since this blue-eyed, Boston duo dropped anything and they team up with former Beantownian Mr. Lif for “I Am Myself”. I wanted to like the song more than I actually did – the production lacks substance and really needed some harder drums just to anchor the floating melodic elements. Lif’s cameo is cool but nothing he hasn’t blazed better for Push Button Objects or DJ Vadim. I see backpackers gravitating towards it but honestly, the song has limited appeal. “R.A.W.” is another story, the playful piano loop is much easier to dig into and Raw Produce’s quick-spit flow on this song turns up the energy meter and grabs your attention far better. Add a chorus that blends some soaring horns and the sound of Big Daddy Kane spelling out raw and you got a song that’s, well, raw. Definitely a 12″ where the B-side wins. Again.
