NEW ALBUM: THE BLOSSOM | 97 BLOSSOM - EP
LA-based Lily Lizotte better known as The Blossom has released her brand new EP called "Blossom 97." After putting out the "Bleeding Buttercup" EP on SoundCloud last year, the EP is Lizotte’s first official release, and one of the first projects to come out of Kevin Abstract and Romil Hemnani of Brockhampton’s creative collective. Her sound builds off the skittering beats and looped instrumentals that define modern hip-hop, cribbing big and twangy guitar licks from the ‘90s, and wielding their raspy, elastic voice in a hundred different ways. The lead single from the set, “Hardcore Happy,” hits on the connection the hardest, but even if the melody is nostalgic, the lyrics are introspective and unsettled in a way that feels very current.
