Great Music of the 21st Century: “Father Trout (The Hood Internet Remix)” by SHAPERS


This track from Chicago's SHAPERS gets hold of an old-school Hip-Hop rhythm track and shapes it into something forward-looking while hinting at ‘60s psychedelia (is that a Theremin I hear?). “We’re awesome!” goes the spoken part, and there’s no reason to disagree. This is loud, ecstatic, satisfyingly basic stuff, the musical equivalent of a shot of espresso in the afternoon.
