SOME STUFFS: clipping. release a new single
If you have been digging the style of clipping. and have wondered if they’re going to release anything more after their Sub Pop album, have patience. For now, they’ve released two brand nw song, and they are posse cuts of sorts, “Something They Don’t Know” and “Mouth”. The songs feature the likes of Black Mushroom, Chinaka Hodge, Signor Benedict The Moor, Nocando, and Open Mike Eagle, but where they are positioned in the songs (and which song) depends on… well, looking at the Bandcamp page to see where they’re at. For you DJ and remixer types, the two songs also come with instrumental and acapella mixes for both, so mix to your heart’s content.
