Trouble Knows Me // Madlib & Sam Herring / Future Islands

Who Knew!? Sam Herring, the idiosyncratic frontman of the brilliant Future Islands, also likes a rap on occasion! Somehow he has teamed up with Madlib for a 12″ with 3 rap cuts and 3 instrumentals.

While I don’t think that the title track (the only I have heard, featuring background crooning from Herring) is a classic, the team-up is certainly a memorable and inspired one.

Listen below, cop here.
