The Dirty Low Down — September 26, 2003
Does this look like a band you want your favorite rap producer to work with?
Thankfully, they don’t rap.
Their sound is as White as they look and based on the advance track we got in our Dirty Low Down office today, none of Gloon’s melanin has rubbed off on them.
They call themselves The Palm Fronds and they come out from Newport Beach, California. I wondered how Gloon even met them until I considered that he’s spent the past 11 months in Sweden producing a Swedish Avant Garde trumpet player named Ten Svee.
Perhaps after all of his scandals, he’s hoping White people will accept him the way Black people used to.
Honestly. I’m waiting for Gloon to start lightening his skin like Michael Jackson did. It wouldn’t surprise me a bit.
Even still, when I heard about Gloon going into the studio with these clowns, I was hoping that it was some kind of bait and switch kind of thing.
Like they hired some random Orange County high schoolers to pretend like they were a band, when in reality, Gloon had reunited with Big Giggles for a Vinyl Envy Part Duece.
The classic joint Vinyl Envy is still the only bottle holding the lightning that was the combo of Big Giggles’ words flowing over Gloon’s beats and production.
I. Am. Sad. Listening to what Gloon’s sound has become.
Like most miserable people, I want company.
Listen to The Palm Fronds and remember that the producer of this used to make beats that ruled the streets.
