While the title “Facemelter” conjures up images of long-haired rockers shredding on the electric guitar, Alexander Spit‘s newly-leaked mixtape standout contains no monster riffs or over-the-top solos. Instead, the record finds the Los Angeles repper who brought us The Kids Are Bored showcasing his skills both on the mic and behind the boards, crafting an atmospherically spacey backdrop for his blunted lyrical poetry. Digging it? There’s plenty more where this came from on Alexander Spit’s These Long Strange Nights LP, released last Tuesday and available now online.
