Listen to "CS60," a new track from BADBADNOTGOOD

Canadian jazz trio BADBADNOTGOOD has gained quite a bit of notoriety for their jazz-centric covers of well-known hip-hop tracks, as well as their work with Odd Future members like Tyler, The Creator and Frank Ocean. With production credits on Earl Sweatshirt's Doris and Danny Brown's Old in 2013, the group has been swiftly rising through the ranks of the hip-hop world. That makes their forthcoming album III one of their most anticipated releases to date. A few days ago the band shared an mesmerizing new track from the forthcoming album entitled "CS60."

"CS60" finds the band treading into unheralded levels of sonic exploration, clocking in at just under seven minutes. The track deviates from their norm, trading in hook heavy covers and jazzy instrumentation for a more experimental and atmospheric style of music. A few head-bob worthy refrains pop in and out of the mix, but most of the track runs deep with densely packed percussion and smooth textures that emanate eerie vibes. Gone are the days of balls-out Gucci Mane covers, instead BBNG seems to have found their footing in brilliantly paced, excellently structured tunes.

III will be released later this year on the L.A based label Innovative Leisure. Check out the track below:
