Every year for the last half-decade or so, you can guarantee to see L’Orange‘s name next so some of the most respected veteran rappers, sometimes just for a couple songs but other times for full length efforts.
In 2016, the North Carolina producer made an album (The Life & Death of Scenery) with Boston legend Mr. Lif just a year after dropping projects with Kool Keith (Time? Astonishing!) and Jeremiah Jae (The Night Took Us In Like Family). Putting somewhat of a close to this stretch of collaborations, L’Orange takes some time for himself on a new EP, Koala.
Sans features, the instrumental project runs seven tracks long and about 18 minutes long.
“Koala is a personal tribute to love and love lost — a fragile meditation on depression and passion,” the producer detailed about the project on Bandcamp. “Solidarity in solitude, we are not alone.”
