Artist Boonie Mayfield brings lots of character and style to his recordings, like on “The Doubt Monster” where he spews a huge, monstrous sound with lots of retro-ness (including 808 drums) in its depiction of a man dogged by depression.:“Wherever I go, it keeps following me.” The retro-vintage flavors keep coming on the slow, soulful “Dream a Mile High” where a chill, lo-fi beat features classic synths for days. Mayfield proclaims his independence—actually yells it out—on “The Self Made Era” with some distorted high-energy guitar and organ licks (a la Rage Against the Machine) in the beat as the artist shouts and shouts his message. Not for everybody, this eccentric artist (and his off-key vocal style) are an acquired taste.
