Antwon+Cities Aviv+Weekend Money
Cities Aviv’s 2011 debut Digital Lows name-checked Mr. Bungle and had arty edges, but mostly delivered thoughtful trad rapslike a slightly outré iteration of arch ‘90s nostaljack Joey Bada$$. More recent material digs deeper, mining the groove where Throbbing Gristle abuts jazz-funk great George Benson. On 2012’s Black Pleasure, Quiet Storm samples get mangled in arrays of CD-skips and chops, while Cities Aviv’s incantatory raps also explore where repetition goes beyond the pleasure principle (e.g., pornography, online romance).
