SLOWTHAI Goes Back To His Rap-Punk Basics And Scores Pure Masterpiece With New Album ‘UGLY

6 March 2023

NME says: “The Northampton artist enlists Fontaines D.C., Shygirl and more on this exhilarating return to his punk-rap roots. UGLY’, is a warts-and-all reckoning, his most exhilarating project to date from front to back. Following the public fall-out from the NME Awards in 2020, and right-wing criticism of his exuberant stage presence and stunts (which included him holding an effigy of Boris Johnson’s severed head at the Mercury Prize in 2019), Tyron Frampton’s “cartoonish” public persona came at the detriment of his brutal honesty and self-expression.” Score: 5/5.

TUTV: This Slowthai guy is a natural-born rap-punk star. His new longplayer stands loud and proud as masterpiece albums do. He spits and sneers, he rants and chants. He tackles injustice, intolerance, and any human discrimination. He’s on fire. Slowthai rules.
