AUDIO: Strehlow – “Cocktail Hour”
Chill hop artist Strehlow dropped a new album recently and it’s full of both collaboration and tranquil summer energy. Fellow Milwaukee producer Ian Ewing is on several of these tracks, as well as artists Aylior and Chris Mazuera. The opener “Jazz Cabbage” feels like an early morning relaxation on a canoe in a pond (hence the cover art) while the following song “Lagoons” is like a downstream sunset journey. These cuts are liquid, sensual, and they paint gorgeous pictures of meditative escapism. Perfect for the time of year, this tape is ideal for your weekend getaway trips you’ll be taking in these last few weeks of summer.
