Given that The Alchemist and Budgie‘s forthcoming collaborative set is titled The Good Book and packaged as an ersatz Bible, it’s only right that the music inside comes from a deep, spiritual place. It just so happens that BAU Music‘s spirituality heavily involves ‘70s yacht-rock hitmaker Michael McDonald. On With My Soul, Budgie builds a fiery, brass-laced beat around the Doobie Brother’s vocals, borrowing the sample from a gospel joint I was unable to identify. Their mic-rocking guests are a bit less pious. Action Bronson is first to flow, beginning his 16 with a question we’ve all asked ourselves, at one time or another: “What if Allen Iverson was Chinese riding on a Harley?” Aston Matthews and J. Rocc contribute similarly off-the-wall, pop-referential bars to the record’s latter two-thirds. Like what you’re hearing? You’ll be able to pre-order The Good Book starting April 4, in anticipation of its release on the 11th.
