Brat by NNAMDÏ

Chicago-based producer and Sooper Records owner Nnamdi Ogbonnaya releases another album as NNAMDÏ, arriving three years after the critical success of Drool. Mixing up hip-hop, DIY indie, gospel and West African music, Brat is more introspective than its predecessor but no less dazzling or defiant of arbitrary genre-labelling.

Admittedly, I didn’t know much of NNAMDÏ before pushing play, but I had an uncontrollable urge to review ‘Brat’, purely because I liked the album artwork. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve bought a record solely based on that - actually I can, twice and they were both crap.

Anyway, with a heavy dose of optimism I delve in to the unknown and what’s immediately obvious to me is that the artwork actually really suits the sound. The opening track ‘Flowers To My Demons’ is as depressing as it is kinda nice too, the track seems to flow really nicely from the delicate to the destructive. ‘Brat’ is certainly erratic, but it’s littered with intricacies both instrumentally and vocally, which is something I can and do appreciate. If you heard the fourth tune ‘Everyone I Loved’ from the other end of a really long corridor, behind three different locked doors, you could be forgiven for asking "Is that Everything Everything?" - listen to it in exactly those circumstances and you’ll know what I mean. After eleven tracks of personal dissatisfaction, NNAMDÏ lifts his head for the album finale ‘Salut’ and preaches “If it’s meant to be, then it will be” as if finally accepting fate.

If you’re not in to self doubt and if pessimism isn’t your middle name, then ‘Brat’ might not be for you. Me? I’ve got a Morrissey tattoo, so obviously for me it’s a walk in the park. If you can put up with the emotional trauma that comes with the album, enjoy basking in NNAMDÏ’s undeniably creative vocal and instrumental performance.
