BADBADNOTGOOD – Can’t Leave The Night / Sustain


A while back, BBND released their stunning new single “CS60” that marked a hatched and lusher sound from the Toronto jazz/hip hop collective. Since then, they’ve offered up two new cuts from their upcoming album III that’s expected a May 6 release via LA based label Innovative Leisure. I can’t say for sure whether  it’s “Sustain” or “Can’t Leave The Night” that works better, as both tracks along with “CS60” seems to work as fractions of a bigger whole. But generally speaking, the former leans toward their jazzier side, while the latter continues to flirts with the deep-seated hip hop beats we’ve heard on “CS60” as well as on their excellent production work on Earl Sweatshirt’s “Hoarse”. At this point, it’s difficult not to expect III to become BBND’s best album so far.
