Knoxville's Thelo-Que has been busting em out. This past week he released Groove Street, his second album this year, and his fifth release overall. With a variety of trippy sounds, many of which would sound at home on Childish Gambino's Because The Internet, Groove Street is a little darker, both sonically and lyrically, than we're used to seeing from Thelo. It is, however, a good dimension to add to his already extensive repertoire. What is has in common with his past work is that it's a showcase of creativity and a welcomed change of pace from what we know as typical hip-hop.
Thelo has enlisted a few cohorts from the Chief Panda camp to be featured on Groove Street, including Taylor, Br-ndn, Benjamin iii, and Sir Veillance. There are 19 tracks in all, and I'd like to point you to a few standouts. All of the songs are worth your time, but "The End" (18), "Vibrations" (6), and "La Familia" (7) are highlights for sure.
If you want to hear more Thelo-Que, he has a lot more to hear on his Bandcamp where you can also purchase this record for only $5.
