Mat Randol’s new LP, Art of Allowing, is remarkably listenable, with cohesive production and gorgeous featured vocals. There are way too many gems to include here, but “Be Friends,” “Birthright,” “Seasons Change” (which Randol released a music video for in June), “Incredible” (with a sample from Francis and the Lights), and “Come Through Me Pt.1,” which includes a shout-out to the late Star Chile, are all immediate favorites. Not to compare, but Randol’s delivery and robust, gravelly tone sort of remind me of J. Cole’s flow—in a good way. Art of Allowing can play all the way through, with no skips necessary. Randol is set to headline this October’s Thesis showcase, where you can hear him perform some of these excellent new tracks live.
