Goldini Bagwell is back with another cut from his Smoker’s Jacket series this time bringing into the fold, well accomplished compatriot Illmaculate. Virtual Reality is a trippy journey that looks at relationships it what almost seems like an out of body experience. The track is sponsored by Chase Moore.
It’s still yet more smooth from Goldini Bagwell’s Smoker’s Jacket monthly series. This delicate masterpiece is produced by DJ Epik and compliments Bagwell’s narrations perfectly.
Goldini Bagwell continues with his Smoker’s Jacket Series with some more laid back, lyrical goodness. This is probably my favorite track thus far from the series. All of the music has been relatively laid back but I find this one to be exceptionally accessible. Bagwell narrates and the listener is captivated. This seems to be a resounding theme with the music he makes.
This is some new Goldini Bagwell from his recently announced, Smoker’s Jacket series. He will be dropping a new single on the 14th of every month. This production from Dalton Jay gives Bagwell a lot of room to breathe and lends itself to creative license.
Stay tuned for more dope.
Goldini Bagwell is anything but ordinary, as a matter of fact, he may be the most artistic emcees I have ever come across. That artistry comes across in his music and in these videos. In all honesty, I didn’t know what was happeneing until the very end, so a credit to the director and the artist on this one. Really brilliant work. Easily a candidate for video of the year.

This is not a review of any sort. This is just ‘us’ letting ‘you’ know that this available now. Bagwell is a favorite and a mainstay on HHD and it’s only fitting for me to encourage you to go pick this up. 90% of the music coming out these days, you have heard before. There’s a lot of the same old cafeteria cooking going on in the lab these days. But when something unique comes out, we’ve got to support. Bagwell is among a very minute population of artists who consistently gives us quality of a different ilk and always makes it fresh for the fans. So make sure you cop from the Bandcamp page now and check back here later, when I will have more time to do an official review!
I am just going to go ahead and say it as I see it: Every year Goldini Bagwell drops an album, you are guaranteed to get a Top Ten track for the year from the project, and this one very well might be that joint for 2014. Bagwell is just the type of artist whose flow sometimes just defies description. It’s mesmerizing at times. It’s even moreso on this joint because the beat and the vocals are simply hypnotic leaving me the listener entrances by the song. The video is produced by cohort Sapient and he did an excellent job with the visuals and transitions.
The album drops next week so…take that!
It’s so good to hear a few Sandpeople brethren on a track together. Read All About It has epic written all over it with Pmpee giving the track a very regal production. That seems appropriate when you have this NorthWest royalty blessing the track. The blending of styles on this joint is pretty damn amazing (as it is always). Such divergent flows and styles and they always come out sounding vintage!
Goldini Bagwell’s new EP, Secondhand Smoke – The Extended Cut drops June 24th but you can pre-order an assortment of packages right now.
Heaven Noise came through as promised with the new Goldini Bagwell single, Feeling Good. It’s music to sit back and chill too with laid back synthesized production. Shoot, I felt my burdened lightened after just one listen. Bagwell’s new album, Secondhand Smoke (The Extended Cut) is due out on June 24th which incidentally feels like a long time.
Disclaimer: It is hard and challenging to pick 50 tracks from the thousands upon thousands that dropped this year. It is merely an attempt to list my favorite cuts of 2012. Click the links to listen to the song! I think it’s a great list. There were a lot of great songs crafted this year and I know I left off some good ones. I listened to 5,000+ tracks from 2012 alone this year, so as an artist, if you made this list you know you are on the forefront of my iTunes!
