I have never done a follow up to an album or LP after it was released but I couldn't help myself when it came to the Meow The Jewels project. The full album was quietly dropped last Wednesday and I am kicking myself for not knowing about it until today. With names such as Blood Diamonds, BOOTS, and Lil Bub this project is a force to be reckoned with and it is UNBELIEVABLY boppable.
- Every track uses cat samples in such a smart way. It is one thing to insert a meow hear and there, but on this LP the producers interlaced cat samples into every portion of the project from the drums to the instruments. As a producer, I am fucking impressed.
- Each track is really remixed. These aren't the original songs with new instrumentals. Every song is flipped and toyed with in a way that separates Meow The Jewels from Run The Jewels 2. If you think you have heard all these songs before you are dead wrong.
- What is even more awesome about this whole project is that the proceeds for a limited run of Meow The Jewels vinyls are being donated to charity. I always love music when it is made for a cause. It makes it even more boppable.
