Colorado's Connor Kennedy has become one of the leading figures in the Spicy Bois movement, but what separates him from the rest of the Wasabi Posse is a bluesy streak that has him utilizing jazzy instrumentations and melancholy melodys where his counterparts go for the splat or the meme of it all.
Next week, Kennedy releases Azure, a mature, patiently-crafted EP that stands apart from anything else the label has put out, and plants a flag for Cnopes as a serious musician who still knows how to party.
Today's premiere, “Sol,” is a boom-bap, laidback beat with some Spicy wubs, to be sure, but it's so much more than that. Which is important in a post-COVID world where you can't rely on big soundsystems to make your point. Tunes have to work just as well in the kitchen as they do in the club.
Cnopes drops Azure on August 10th.
