When I’m craving a little Solitude, nothing scratches that itch like slipping on my headphones, stepping outside and vibing out to some good tunes while taking a nice, long walk (being careful not to vibe out so thoroughly I walk into traffic, of course). If you, too, find escape through music (whether listening to it or making it), you’ll have no trouble relating to the latest feature from Kooley High, the North Carolina five-piece who brought us Kooley Is High back in early ‘09. The first leak off a forthcoming project entitled Eastern Standard Time, the track finds emcees Charlie Smarts, Tab One, and Rapsody professing their love (along with a little lust) to Ms. Hip Hop over the soulful production of Foolery, who borrows a head-nodding groove and vocal hook from the Supremes’ Happy (Is a Bumpy Road). Complete with guest rhymes from fellow Tar Heel State native Median, Solitude is sure to get retro-minded heads excited to spend a little alone time with Kooley High’s next project, set to hit record stores and online retailers “soon.”
