‘Krautrock Classics’ w/ Nite Jewel+Peanut Butter Wolf

by

Peanut Butter Wolf has never been inextricably tied to the hip-hop he and the late Charizma first found success with back in ’89: His sets have often been pop-friendly and his label, Stones Throw, has branched away from Madlib’s one-man industry to encompass the varied avant-soul of Dam-Funk, Mayer Hawthorne, Aloe Blacc, and James Pants. So it’s almost no great surprise to see him performing a tribute to Kraftwerk’s Computer Love alongside Italians Do It Better/Secretly Canadian synth chanteuse Nite Jewel. With Chrome Canyon and Scout Mou.
