Hear New Sound: Earl Sweatshirt's "Guild" (feat. Mac Miller)

Earl Sweatshirt, an early contender for the year’s best rap album not made by someone named Kanye or Drake, still hasn’t officially announced when his debut effort Doris will be released other than it will arrive on his freshly-pressed imprint Tan Cressida under the Columbia Records umbrella. We also know the LP feature two great singles in the form of last year’s listmaker “Chum” and more recently, the Tyler, the Creator-assisted “WHOA.” The latest advance to trickle its way onto the web keeps the positive momentum building for Odd Future’s prodigal son with a downtuned and dirtied up slo-mo production called “Guild” featuring fellow hip-hopper Mac Miller. Earl has been previewing the song live for the past few months now, but the studio cut clarifies the blurry purple beats behind the rhymes that realigns him with the OF gang’s calling card of nightcrawling simplicity. Earl and Mac form a "Guild" below...
