Austin Fair – Word of Mouf (New Mixtape)

We are big fans of Austin Fair. Like huge. Massive. So much so that we did an exclusive interview and premiere of his last album TTrouble in Paradise. A week or so ago he did a little social media “experiment,” letting his fans know if one of his tweets got to a certain number of likes he’d drop his EP Word Of Mouf. Well, he got the numbers, and then some.

Word of Mouf is a completely different sound than his previous work. Many of the tracks are slower paced. I am more than happy to hear Austin stepping out of his comfort zone a little and progressing in his approach to lyrics, beats, and song structure. I’ll always love his ignorant up-beat songs such as No Days Off (which is on this album and highly recommended), but really appreciate the experimentation of the intro; setting the tone for what you can expect for the rest of the project.

Give this a listen and be sure to follow him on SoundCloud. Check out our previous interview and premiere here.
