Ghostpoet Shedding Skin (Play It Again Sam)

Ghostpoet comes across as Tricky’s comprehensible musical cousin. On Shedding Skin, live instruments back his raspy rhymes, a first for the British rapper. This is a great match for the catches in Ghostpoet’s voice, which are at their best when he’s head-to-head with the ladies. He battles lazily on “That Ring Down the Drain Kind of Feeling,” leans against the guitar sketches of “Sorry My Love It’s You Not Me,” and quivers with flair through the skittish “Off Peak.”

Watch the official video for “Off Peak Dreams” via Q Magazine.
