Los Angeles emcee Intuition and producer Equalibrum are back together for their sophomore effort. If the title of the album didn't give it away already, the album's tone is definitely less serious and a distant departure from their debut, Stories About Nothing.
Instead, this time around, Intuition, equipped with a more palatable voice, chooses to regale listeners with easy living tales revolving around inebriation, dead end jobs, and women. Not missing a step, Equalibrum's layered soundscapes continue to provide the perfect compliment.
Girls Like Me is extremely accessible but most importantly, it does not sound forced. It will undoubtedly do well in the indie scene but with the correct push, I can easily see it reaching the alt/pop rock crowd as well.
