THE UNDERACHIEVERS / Indigoism [2013]

Playing a huge part in the rising "Beast Coast" movement, hip-hop duo The Underachievers make their debut with the 2013 mixtape Indigoism.
Like a love letter to their old school roots, spirituality and the drugs they endure, the duo's lyrics are occasionally questionable but their rapid fire vocal deliveries are what sells it.  It's all complimented with a deliciously murky sounding production that picks apart it's psychedelic sound palate with a enduring cloudy smoothness and bizarre rhythm shifts.  Clocking in at nearly an hour, it's a bit much and some of the weaker tracks could easily have been dropped to create a solid listen from this act that you should keep your eyes on.
