(From Ora EP; 2022)
The rest of Seiji Oda’s new EP is too wishy-washy singy for my taste, but this song is some Wavy flava for my ear. Only Seiji can make acoustic guitar Hyphy slaps for starstruck lovers basking in the glow of a sea-front sunset. The first Bay Area Rap song you could play next to OMC’s How Bizarre or wot? R.I.P to the Maori bloke with the cravat.
BTW, it’s also R.I.P to Tame One from The Artifacts. The 12″ they did on Rawkus Records under the pseudonym of Brick City Kids is one of that label’s best bangers no IMHO necessary.
