At this point, a new track from The Hood Internet is not a matter of suspense. Spending the better part of a decade making consistently entertaining mashups of hip hop and everything else can create that kind of faith in listeners. So it’s no surprise that “Honest Season,” which takes Future’s “Honest” and the suddenly buzzing “Seasons (Waiting On You)” by Future Islands, makes a fun, unexpected marriage. Future takes over vocal duties from Samuel Herring, and while it would be blasphemous to say he’s improved on what was there, the switch isn’t nearly as jarring as it might seem. Really, Future Islands’ instrumentation is a game changer in place of the somewhat forgettable keyboard and synth beat from “Honest.” The two songs end up on a similar tonal wavelength, and once again we get to thank The Hood Internet for giving us a mashup we didn’t even know we needed. Check it out below.
The Hood Internet will playing the next edition of All Things Gold this Thursday, April 10th at U Street Music Hall. Advance tickets are available at the link below. Get to it!
