I was browsing around Gorilla vs. Bear earlier when I came across a link to a guy named Clutchy Hopkins. At first it seemed like one of those overly weird bands/artists that I pass on because of their overt weirdness. But I decided to give him a listen to see what it was all about.
Shit. This guy is so good.
He’s got a crazy blend of jazz/funk/hip hop that just sounds so perfect.
You can listen to 12 of his songs on his Stage.FM site in order to get a good feel of what he’s all about.
His official site says that he has some records at the Amoeba on Sunset, so I’m going to have to check that out tomorrow.
