I've been following Kill Bill since the release of his debut mixtape Ramona about a year ago. While I found myself not being able to get behind Kill Bill's ballads and reference heavy lyricism, there was a strong sense of genuine heart and output being backed into his work. Thankfully, about a year later, Kill Bill released a follow-up mixtape by the name of RESIN.
This mixtape is noticeably darker. There isn't that much safe warmness that was present in Ramona. Instead, the production of the mixtape sees darker tones with glitchy beats and harsh noise. Meanwhile, Kill Bill himself seems to have taken a far more negative perspective in his songwriting as many of the tracks on here feel somewhat self-defeatists. It's an interesting perspective, and the vulnerability that Kill Bill places himself in create moment of sincerity that makes RESIN engaging. If you like dark production, quirky samples, and harsh song-writing then this album is for you.
Just remember, a little support and a little word of mouth goes a long way! Don't forget to share this album with your friends and family along with supporting the artist! Free music makes the world go round. Not gravity.
