Representing the Hellfyre Club, Wisconson rapper Milo begins the new year with a double EP project. “Things That Happen At Day” was produced entirely by Riley Lake, and “Things That Happen At Night” was produced by Analog(ue) Tape Dispenser. Collectively containing 10 tracks, Milo describes the theme as being an exploration of duality and responsibility. “It is unavoidably obtuse, overwhelmingly self-important and I am not sorry,” he says.
The production is ambient, and allows Milo to shine. With a delivery cross between spoken word and carefree rapping, Milo remains true to self, with his quirky persona, pop-culture infused lyrics, honest expression, and question for truth. There are only two features, coming from Safari Al (on “Almond Milk Paradise” on Day) and Busdriver (on “The Gus Haynes Cribbage League”, on Night). Stream the album and purchase each of them for $5. Also, read his addendum, to get a better idea of what these albums are about.
