Album Review: LFTP Season Vol.1 – 3Bubble & J. Gray

Following the release of their critically acclaimed album ‘Pentagon Memoirs’ (2016) – which sits at a well deserve place at number four on NEW LEASE MUSIC’s Top Ten Albums of 2016 list –  I have a very strange feeling that 3BUBBLE & J. GRAY are going to create just as much buzz (if not more) with their brand new album ‘LFTP ‘ Season Vol.1’.

Unlike ‘Pentagon Memoirs’ which boasts summer-ready anthems, ‘LFTP Season Vol.1’ predominately adopts a laid back vibe of old school soul, a tingling sensation that the nine-track set introduces with ‘Vibin’ where the alluring contribution of the saxophone adds that magical touch.

Just in case you’re wondering what ‘LFTP’ stands for – it’s Live From The Pentagon – the name of their label. Like their previous albums, they showcase some of the most promising recruits, such as RAGS and King Kelechi, coming from their hometown Houston – and they’re on a serious mission to bring back old school/golden hip-hop through track ‘LFTP Squad’.

Further along, ‘How Long’ respectfully interrupts the laid-back/retro flow and brings the collection right up to date with its bold, counter rhythmic loop reverberating through the piece. Returning to its original theme, the album finishes off with their prominent tale of life struggles. ‘Leave Me Now’ gives a glimpse into the darkest hours of loneliness and their increasingly mistrust in friends around them.

Like its predecessor,  ‘LFTP Season Vol.1’ is an instantly likeable set; so infectious that it has a strong potential in making it the blog’s next album of the year list and beyond. Check it out below:

Album Review: Pentagon Memoirs – 3Bubble & J.Gray

Pentagon Memoirs NLM

OK folks, hope you’re ready for something completely FRESH. Just three months after releasing their debut album, Live from the Pentagon, hip-hop duo 3BUBBLE & J.GRAY are set to slam another one, coming in the form of Pentagon Memoirs.

Their latest collection displays how sonically diverse these guys are – from dabbling into a little golden hip-hop, real R&B/slow jams to delightfully wayward bangers that’s arguably on par with Outkast…something tells me that their names will dominate the web in months to come.

Pentagon Memoirs is out this Monday via iTunes and Amazon…but for now, check out one of the tracks, Bulletproof.
