Released under the Pittsburgh indie phenom’s “Larry Fisherman” alias, Mac Miller‘s last feature, Doodling in the Key of C Sharp, earned him props for his willingness to think outside the box, but was a little too willfully eccentric to win Booth readers’ seal of approval. On follow-up promotional single All the Time (premiered Thursday by our friends at AshleyOutrageous.com), the Steel City indie phenom dials back the weirdness (and lays off the Jameson) to deliver something a little closer to the status quo, but still clearly marked with his stylistic signature. Here, Ex-Cool Kid Chuck Inglish serves up a synth instrumental dripping with laid-back swag as Miller brings us up to speed on his paper chase in slurred, pop-referential verses. Black Hippy buzzmaker Ab-Soul provides guest bars. Watch the Booth for the latest on Miller’s sophomore full-length Watching Movies with the Sound Off and his forthcoming Pink Slime EP with Pharrell Williams, both scheduled for release in 2013.
