New Beastie Boys!
First it was Tadlock Glasses, then Hot Sauce Committee Part One, but now the legendary 90s rap trio have settled on Hot Sauce Committee Part Two for the name of their eight studio album. They’ve gotta be 40 or 50 by now, but age is apparently meaningless to the Beastie Boys. They’ve recently dropped two singles off the upcoming Hot Sauce Committee Part Two: the almost-title-track “Tadlock Glasses”, and “Make Some Noise”.
Personally, I’m into “Make Some Noise” a little more, but only because it revisits the irresistibly funky Beastie Boys production style. “Tadlock”, however, will probably generate more conversation, at is totally ‘out there’. A touch of Beck-esque instrumentals mixed with some Moby vibes, all underneath highly distorted Beastie Boys, is definitely a new sound for the trio. Hopefully the unorthodox approach they’re taking with this album will culminate in a record equally good, if not better, than their 90s gems. Check out “Tadlock Glasses” here, “Make Some Noise” below, and look out for Hot Sauce Committee Part Two, dropping May 3rd.
