Sweet Valley is the beatmaking project of Californian brothers Joel and Nathan (of Wavves renown) Williams; their Christmas present to you is Jenova, their third release this year. It’s seventeen short-and-sweet tracks of inventive, layered beats, chock full of chopped-and-screwed vocals and hazy drones, just waiting for someone to rap over – it could be you? Our favorites are the weirdest (we’re digging “Slum Vexx” the most) but give it a listen; the brothers and their label, Fools’ Gold, have been so kind as to offer it for free download. Check it out.
