Listen: Small Black's free mixtape - 'Moon Killer'

Small Black

A week ago Brooklyn’s own Small Black put out a free 11-track mixtape in honor of 11/11/11. The glo-fi band’s new release, Moon Killer is as chilly as any wave they’ve ridden yet with synthy beats, heavily distorted vocals, and lots of loops. Small Black got a little help from fellow Brooklynite Heems of Das Racist, who is featured on tracks two and six. Phonetag and Star Slinger also lend a hand, remixing the tenth and eleventh track respectively.

It’s a solid album for what it is, and folks seem to like it, since the title track has already gotten over 9,000 plays. Small Black is signed to Jagjaguwar and has just one full-length out so far: last year's New Chain. the band is set to celebrate the mixtape with a release party tonight at Glasslands Gallery in Williamsburg with Heaveny Beat and “VERY SPECIAL surprises and guests”. Listen to the whole thing below.
