VIDEO REVIEW: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R8HRB_EA7XQ
When listening to Armand Hammer for the first time, you might not fully grasp what the hell is exactly going on, but you will absolutely know it's urgent. Armand Hammer are fucking smart. Their dense lyricism, unconventional production choices, and generally bizarre maneuvering throughout each of their songs make for an overwhelming sonic experience which absolutely bombards your ass with rich poetry that's as intellectual as it is visceral.
I'd compare it to sitting in an advanced chemistry class even though you don't know shit about chemicals. There's so much information coming at you your brain simply cannot process it all, but you'll want to keep digging anyways because you know somewhere in the textbook contains all the secrets of the universe.
Now imagine you're sitting in this chemistry class, and the Alchemist comes over and pushes you on the ground. You try to get up, but he pushes you right back down and starts kicking the shit out of you. Then you fall in love with the Alchemist because this isn't normally like him and you think it's arousing he's acting up like this. And the chemistry class is actually being taught by Malcom X. Oh, and at one point Earl Sweatshirt comes over and gives you a hug.
