EDITORS’ NOTES

Deep-thinking South London rapper Loyle Carner bares his soul on his confessional, jazz-infused hip-hop debut, Yesterday’s Gone. On dramatic opener “The Isle of Arran,” he samples a rapturous choir and some funky guitar licks, using his soft-spoken flow to ponder the meaning of death. Elsewhere, “Ain’t Nothing Changed” finds the MC languidly reciting rhymes as if perched on a bar stool in a basement jazz club, chewing over the realities of financial debt while accompanied by bluesy saxophone and a boom-bap beat.

About Loyle Carner

British MC Loyle Carner is signed to AMF (All My Friends) Records. Born Benjamin Coyle-Larner in South London, he began recording demos that, when given to friends King Krule and Rejjie Snow, earned him a 2012 opening slot in Dublin in support of MF Doom. In 2014, he made his recording debut with the EP A Little Late. "Guts," a collaborative track with poet/rapper Kate Tempest, was released that same year. In 2015, he issued the indie single "Tierney Terrace" before he signed with AMF, a label associated with Virgin EMI. The young creative had begun to generate hype among lovers of alternative hip-hop, and was noted for the distinct difference between his languid vocal delivery and the more abrasive delivery of his Croydon counterparts. His introspective and astonishingly honest lyrics certainly began to make an impression, and created waves with tracks like "The Isle of Arran" and "Ain't Nothing Changed." The tracks were featured on his debut full-length Yesterday's Gone, released in early 2017. ~ David Jeffries
