This is the weirdest, yet oddly fucking touching track I’ve been sent in a long time.
It’s the first piece of work I’ve come across by Leron Thomas, but a quick scan of his Youtube channel suggests he’s been working busily away in spite of me. I’m yet to make my way through his entire output, but his new cut Sanitation Truck seems like as good a place as any to start. It combines the bathetic narratives of early Busdriver material with the sincerity of Twin Shadow, (almost), to pretty engrossing effect. There’s a real charm to an adult retelling a story from childhood with the same wide-eyed confusion of the time, with just the right amount of perspective to give the whole thing weight.
Tentatively excited for more.
