Free Download | Nobody Said It Was Easy - Marty Grimes
You’re probably familiar with the colloquial term “Sophomore Slump”, but Marty Grimes’s second project is the antithesis of a let down. We haven’t missed a single release from Marty in the last two years that he’s been putting out music, so it’s safe for me to say that his growth from Through The Smoke is monumental. His story is atypical; working week days at a small-town pizza shop and performing for huge crowds on the weekends. He’s had one foot out the door for awhile now, but I honestly think this project might be what propels him into the lime light. The 16-track album showcases a lot of different styles, but the balance between ignorant turn-up tracks and insightful smoker jams is pe rfect. The production from KDE is on point as usual, the features vary from the notorious G-Eazy to the less well-known Tom Body, and the lyricism spans from girls and drugs to dreams and regrets. Cop the free download, show Marty Grimes some love on Twitter and Soundcloud, and expect to see him in a city near you sometime this Fall.
