New Music: Childish Gambino

16 Jun

One of the best parts of a music festival is discovering new music and at Bonnaroo I did just that.  On the first night of the festival I found myself bouncing around and after catching the end of The Walkmen’s set and waiting for Deerhunter to go on, I stumbled upon Childish Gambino and within minutes was blown away.  I had absolutely zero notion of who he was or what kind of music I was preparing myself for but left craving more and while hip-hop is his game, I loved the fact that he has a kick ass band backing him.  Oh yeah, Childish Gambino is the alter ego of comedian Donald Glover; a tiny bit of information you should know ;).

I may be late to this party as he’s be rapping for some years now but I’ll take a new discovery any day.
