Little Brother announced yesterday that they were releasing a new album and they surprised everyone by keeping their word after a nine-year break. May The Lord Watch comes a year after their live reunion onstage in their hometown of Durhan, North Carolina at the Art Of Cool Festival. 9th Wonder did not produce the new album; Black Milk, Nottz, Khrysis and Phonte took over the instrumental sounds. MTLW has the swing associated with all of their releases and the boom-bap aesthetic is still gracefully intact. The group’s reemergence after Leftback from 2010 is a gift to the summer. Next month they will headling the Hopscotch Festival in Raleigh, North Carolina. Durham.
