The Lower Class – Wingfield [MIXTAPE.]

The Texas collective, The Lower Class team up with blogs Oh So Fresh and Apple Juice Break to release their much anticipated street album Wingfield. Wingfield brings back producer imaGenius’ eclectic sound mixed with a new found focus, emphasizing on jazz and soul samples. Incorporating themes from Tennessee Williams’ play The Glass Menagerie, the Lower Class give their insight on nostalgia, escapism, dynamics of relationships and abandonment. It’s this unabashed description of society’s most taboo themes that makes the Lower Class more than just another group of musicians, they push musical boundaries. With the group’s first feature, singer Louis Alvin, they bring in a new vocal dynamic while keeping it limited to showcase each rappers lyrical potential. Take a listen to the album stream below, and if it strikes your fancy download the project.
