And now we finally get our hands on the long-awaited Billy Lotion, the smooth and funky work of art created by Florida’s own Willie Evans Jr. as he flips the entire Aloe Blacc Good Things album into a beat CD. We’ve said enough about the album so here’s Willie’s released statement that accompanied the release.
“The good people over at High Water Music asked me to stop playing Tekken 6 long enough to explain/talk about Billy Lotion. Billy Lotion is essentially the product of Sucio Smash letting me hear Aloe Blacc’s most recent album and then saying “What if you made a beat cd out of this album?” After listening to (and being blown away by) the album I sat down, partook of the shrubbery and made beats. It’s pretty much that simple. This is basically a pet project that, through the magic of the ‘SucioPrism’ is now in your hard drive and hopefully on your phone/iPod/iPad/blah. Please enjoy. And buy 1000 copies of my next album. I’m obligated to say that. But do it though.”
Evan’s Jr. full length album of original work, Introducin’, drops 7.19 via High Water Music. For now, enjoy the freebie while making plans to support the future retail release.
