Los Angeles' Odd Future crew remain one of the most exciting hip hop groups in the world right now - even if the hype has died down somewhat since they burst onto the world stage a couple of years’ back - so the return to Australia of a couple of their finest members is very welcome indeed.
While there is a bevy of talent present in that group, it’s hard to argue that its two most talented artists are group leader Tyler, the Creator and the infamous Earl Sweatshirt – he who was sent to boarding school as soon as the band became popular – and this morning it was announced that both rappers will be making their way to Australia to tour as Earlwolf this June.
Tyler has just dropped Wolf, a record that sees him mature both musically and lyrically and a release that sees him cement his place as one of the world’s freshest musical talents right now.
Earl Sweatshirt is yet to release an LP after the 2010 debut Earl that introduced him to the world, but his follow up Doris is due soon and the first taste of it has been very tidy indeed. Hear Whoa below:
The two hip hop young guns will play the following dates when they’re out here in just over a month’s time.
