Kid Cudi x Vampire Weekend   Cudderisback

I’m not exactly sure when Kid Cudi left in the first place, and that’s ok, I’ve always been the kind of person that will go to a birthday party without knowing who the birdthday boy/girl was — I just want cake.

On “Cudderisback”, Kid Cudi, or Cudder (terrible nickname, it just sounds dirty) raps over Vampire Weekend’s “Ottoman”. If you didn’t know, “Ottoman” was commissioned by the Nick and Norah’s Infinite Playlist people for an indietastic, better than New Moon Soundtrack soundtrack.

Other than the Vampire Weekend, “Cudderisback” doesn’t stray from Kid Cudi’s proven method of indie-rap song craftsmanship. Cudi touches base on a colorful array of topics, but again leaves me feeling like he doesn’t have much to say. He has nothing to worry about though, Ivy League afro-pop in the background makes everything better.

Reviews

Charlotte Aitchison’s second LP is a warhead, a sonic sour bomb that conceals sneering attitude and caustic kiss-offs beneath an initially shimmering pop sheen.
