Pell - Eleven:11

Feels Like: Chance the Rapper, Bas, Drake

Pell Yeah. That's New Orleans lyricist Pell's twitter handle and website domain, and it pretty much sums up the feeling when listening to his album. In an era of mostly disappointing debuts, Pell's Floating While Dreaming is surprisingly amazing. His vocals bring to mind a toned-down version of Chance the Rapper's stream-of-conscious quirkiness while the production falls in line with the moody, atmosphere-driven style spearheaded by the world's most famous lint-roller, Drake. It's worth a listen or two and "Eleven:11" should be enough of a taste to convince you to take that dive.
