Both emcees come through with their say-whatever-thoughts-come-to-mind ease. Milo contemplate his place in society, saying that if he’s left bleeding in an alley in Chicago, “an olive tree thrives in the Napa Valley,” seeming to hint at a power struggle between the elite and those without the power. Open Mike Eagle follows, telling the story of his “assistant” Gladys, who takes on the brunt work of dealing with Mike’s depression even though she isn’t “trained in suicide prevention.” Eventually, she tells him to tell the people wasting his time to “fuck off,” and that will make him feel better.
Nalepa’s soft bass and synthesizers mixed with Nick Diamonds’ chorus and the two verses make the oddly-uneasy “Another One Of Mine” a comforting affair. Listen to and download the new track below.
