The weather’s turning, and Asher Roth is coming out of hibernation. Never one to hide his quirkier side, there’s very little rapping to be found in “Tangerine Girl.” A hazy verse at the end, but really, that’s just to make sure we’re not forgetting Asher’s hip-hop roots: this ride is cruising down another lane entirely. Lucid, trippy, hypnotic, funky.
Hit play, pick your favorite adjective and tell your friends that Roth is back with a style that absolutely works for him. RetroHash–due April 22 (surprising it’s not just dropping on April 20th, but it is what it is)–should offer more of the same. Get excited, but be chill about it.
