Out now is a new album from one of the UK's most exciting partnerships. Jister and The Lion Ranger are back and following up on their highly well received debut EP Aburdism. This, their first full length affair is beautifully packaged with stunning artwork and available as a digital copy from their bandcamp page.
Jister first gained wider attention when supporting Scroobius Pip on his Speech Development Records Tour,and since then has solidified his spot as one of the UK's most unique voices. Proudly regional and brave enough to tackle topics other MCs might turn and run from, Jister colours TLR's epic soundscpaes with in depth stories and heart baring statements aplenty. The production carries those tales carefully to your lobes and delivers them with embracing clarity.
There is a clear evolution on this record from the last EP with a more mature and full neo-noir sound, with stories and themes based around complex topics such as mental health, suicide, politics, relationships and the inevitable zombie apocalypse all tackled in this 11 track piece. Full to the brim with everything you'd want from a hip hop album, this is sure to continue the JTLR trend of turning heads. Go get stuck in.
