Red Pill Day Drunk EP on Colored 12" Vinyl

Colored Copies Are Limited / Call To Confirm Colored Copies Are Still Available

Detroit's Red Pill released his solo Mello Music debut album Look What This World Did To Us earlier in 2015. The record was striking because of it's straight-forward, intellectually broken, Bukowski-like realism. The photos were serious, brooding, and the lyrics were heavy and genuine. Enter the Day Drunk EP. Red Pill starts on top of a clock-ticking, mind-mesmerizing, introductory track from UK producer Paul White

After a philosopher-king monologue, the Zen Buddhist meditative chant begins – "Don't work, just party - you'll be alright. Don't try so hard. Just live your life." But Pill never leaves you insightfully dumb, with lines like "I think we need a new religion / wound up, bound up in submission / getting lost in the mission / false definitions/ be causing derision / all these people talkin' competition / all these people talkin' is division..." And then the record gets green lit.

You may recognize the next Alex Goose-produced track from Silicon Valley. Red Pill lays hardworking slacker ambition bare in one dumb, drunk, punch over the energetic beat. The song is as ludicrously lavish as Scorsese's "Wolf Of Wall Street." The album moves into happy-hour heartstrings unfurling with a song for those who'd rather stay inside, those who, "outside of their mind, don't know what's real." This is for those who can never fall asleep without a helper, "a little gin and seltzer," as Red Pill puts it. 

Blu joins the 3 o'clock session, laying bars over an Oddisee-produced, rainy kitchen window thought piece. But, like any good rap savior, Red Pill pulls us back up from the depths with Exile's upbeat "Porn & Milk." The Day Drunk EP is a record to wash away the feeling when your cash is gone.
