First Impressions: Laser Beamin'
Thursday, September 8, 2011
Oh, how I love a rock-soul hybrid to end the week on. "Laser Beams" is Idle Warship's second sound nugget from their pending debut, Habits Of The Heart. The trio (comprised of Talib Kweli, Res, and Graph Nobel) have already given clue to what's on the horizon when they dropped their mixtape, Party Robot last year. The mixtape left many on a dividing line, those wary that the group hadn't found the right sound to fit them, but "Laser Beams" dispels all that as the supergroup is definitely ready for an official liftoff. All this grungy guitar jammin' fits Res' vocals like a glove and the track as a whole is unabashedly fun, perfect to shake them weekday sillies off. Acts like Michelle Williams, Chester French, and Jean Grae will take on guest spots on the upcoming Habits, which will be arriving this October, but there is no upstaging Idle Warship, who just add to the awesomeness that 2011 is turning out to be.
