Announced just two weeks ago, Action Bronson and The Alchemist have already dropped their EP Lamb Over Rice. Though the VICELAND co-stars have worked on a number of tracks in the past, this project marks the first collaborative EP since 2012’s mixtape Rare Chandeliers.
According to Bronson’s tweet from a few weeks ago, the new EP will “change your life.” It’s packed with clever writing as the two artists exchange verses back to back over a set of layered, jazzy instrumentals. The opening track “DMTri” begins with a slow ballad of strings and wind instruments, abruptly switched up by soulful arrangements of synths and organs as muffled drums and a driving bassline set the rhythms. Similar sounds to the opening track, like wonky piano refrains and snappy drums, weave into the rest of the tracks on the EP, except “Arnold & Danny,” which finishes the album on a more funk-tinged note. Notable lyrics include “You’ll be amazed, like the first time you seen snow/Down in Georgia on the Peach Grove” in “DMTri” or “I don’t give a fuck I’m just a grown ass kid/Eyes wide shut I control that whip” on “Descendant Of The Stars.”
