The on-the-rise New York beatmaker Harry Fraud has a new EP called High Tide coming out next week (weirdly, thanks to some sponsorship help from Scion), and on its first single Earl Sweatshirt and Riff Raff investigate one of the least-observed traumas of being rich – “Yacht Lash.” Yep, when you get whiplash when you crash your yacht. Come for Fraud’s insane beat and Earl’s smart, verbose verses, stay for Riff’s absurdist shoutouts to sushi. You can download the rest of High Tide for free on May 7; this’ll definitely tide you over.
