The Cool Kids, When Fish Ride Bicycles

The Cool Kids (Chuck Inglish and Mikey Rocks) expertly deliver thick, subwoofer-destroying 808 beats; ’70s soul-funk piano mixed with ’80s keys; and super-tight rhymes on their first full-length album. They’re young, but they’ve got an old-soul hip-hop style, à la Run-DMC and Eric B. & Rakim. Guests include Ghostface and Pharrell Williams, the latter of which produces a track. Inglish’s production is incredibly slick, on par with that of the Neptunes. Standouts: “Boomin’” and “Rush Hour Traffic.” Superb. (Green Label Sound | coolxkids.com)
