Homeboy Sandman is probably still hard @ work recording First of a Living Breed, his debut Stones Throw full-length, because labelhead Peanut Butter Wolf keeps "releasing" all the good tracks for FREE! The latest mp3 give-away, "Brown" was produced by fellow Stones Throw signee, Jonti and was uploaded to Soundcloud Thurs. afternoon; It showcases a Hip-Hop beat that was fine crafted on a native South African instrument called a "coconut kalimba" (thumb piano). Homeboy Sandman & Jonti originally linked up @ Radiolab, "Brown" was seemingly written/recorded for their Colors-based episode.
Leading up to First of a Living Breed, Homeboy Sandman has released a string of 2 EP's since signing with Stones Throw in Dec. 2011... Subject: Matter and Chimera EP. Jonti has also managed to issue 2 projects with the Indie Hip-Hop imprint, Twirlgig/Sine & Moon (mixtape). Old Australian "chaps," Jonti and Gotye are heading out on a MASSIVE tour together across North America/Europe, that'll span from August-Nov. While Homeboy Sandman is headed on a 38-city US [Canadian] tour, running from Sept-Oct. with Brother Ali.
