Clams Casino – Instrumentals [album stream]

Full stream of one of the best albums of the year, the already classic 'Instrumentals' by New Jersey's Clams Casino.


Words by: Charlie Jones

Clams Casino’s music is stripped of the cartoon bravado of instrumental hip hop (brilliant as that can be), and instead focuses you on the softer side of the genre’s fantasy element. The brutal loveliness of his ‘Instrumentals’ album, finally seeing physical release on Type Records next week after months on Mediafire, is a woozily warm-hearted listen, thick with melancholy, those beats sounding like they’re scaling mountains. Much as his ‘Rainforest’ EP on Tri Angle Records earlier in the year, it’s essential and moving, and available to stream through the Type Records Soundcloud now.
