Out To Sea

Chris Orrick

Out To Sea

Mello Music Group
The title track from Orrick's stunning new LP for the ever-dependable MMG, and like the rest of the set, a track that refuses to stay still or stagnate lyrically, touching on trauma and torment but with a poetic freedom that can also launch you into imaginative joy. SIM produces, and weaves a gorgeous tropicalia spell, a thumping Latinate groove over which Orrick looks at the city he's trapped in, the beckoning ocean, the compass that's spinning and decides the only way out is UP. Orrick has found a way to replace the confidence most rappers assume they have to portray with a sense of personal and political uncertainty that really chimes right now. Check this out and dive into the album.
