Brockhampton / Iridescence

Brockhamptonの2018年リリースのメジャーデビュー作。ライブの予習で聴きました。ライブに登場したのは6MC(国人3人、白人3人)だったが、その他にもProducer, Graphic designer, Photographer, Web Designer, Managerまでが一員で現時点で総勢14人となる大所帯のクルーである。
中心人物のKevin Abstractが立ち上げ、元はKanyeのファイサイトで集結したらしいが今はLAで活躍し、ユースカルチャーと結びついている。
本人たちはBoy Bandを自称し、Light Field Hip-Hopに分類されることもあるが、そこに捉われない才気あふれる集団である。
KevinがビートルズのSgt peppersにインスパイアされたと言っているが、Popで、賑やかで、エネルギッシュなHip-Hopになっており、オルタナ臭も漂う力作である。6MCが、曲ごとに入れ替わり、Rapを披露しており、そんなところも楽しい作品だ。
