AUDIO: Phatbrane – “Pothead Social Club Volume 2”
There’s a place where minds go to melt, where ears go to be soothed into oblivion. And that place is the sonic landscape created in “Pothead Social Club Volume 2”. With some songs being entirely instrumental, others having sparse bars or repeated choruses, they all provide the same extremely chilled out, couch-locking vibe. This doesn’t make it boring though— the drum machine beats stay varied throughout the album, sometimes jittery, sometimes driving.
The pothead connection is huge on this volume as well, several tracks featuring spoken lines about various cannabis-related situations. Funniest among these being a whole track’s worth of what sounds like an announcement at a party letting guests know that boozing must be limited to the designated drinking area.
Enjoyable to more than just those looking for a stoner vibe, this collection of cucumber-cool tracks shows Phatbrane locked in on a signature sound which they execute with slickness.
