After appearing on the scene in 2011, The Internet has maintained the momentum that propelled them into national and international appreciation.
First elevating with Odd Future, Syd the Kid produced music and DJ’d for the well-known collective but eventually deviated with fellow producer Matt Martians to create The Internet and release their first EP, Purple Naked Ladies.
Their second album, Feel Good, was released in 2013 and was widely appraised. Their latest EP, Ego Death, is still more of the sound that fans have come to love. With appearances from Tyler the Creator, Janelle Monae, and Vic Mensa and the epic reemergence of the ‘Partners in Crime’ series, the newest album illustrates how down-to-earth the members are and, as was noted by Matt, the realization that the ego is the downfall of many people.
It’s obvious that the egos of The Internet hasn’t caused false inflation in any way – I started following them when they released their first album and fell in love with their use of acoustics and mellow, soulful sound. Since then, collaborations have produced beautiful music with the likes of Jesse Boykins, Kilo Kush, and Lana Del Ray. They haven’t let me (or any of their fans) down yet – staying true to their sound, the Odd Future label, and creative process (Ego Death was recorded in Syd’s basement).
