Yurufuwa Gang’s Mars Ice House is a stellar rap album produced by Automatic that sounds really different from a lot of rap/hip hop out there. “Sad but Good” is an example of how the group can create a more somber sounding song that still bounces along.
The themes include mourning and acceptance, and “Sad but Good” nails it right on the head. The use of heavy autotune adds distance and alienation and the fractal keyboards adds flight to an already high track. This is dope and serious too.
Mars Ice House was released on 4.5.2017 at CDJapan.
I bought it myself earlier this spring and you can watch the video of that opening below:
