Sims of Minneapolis, MN-based hip hop collective Doomtree—some of whom we talked to back in June—released a free EP entitled Wildlife earlier this week as a thank you to fans of the group. Download or stream the EP after the jump.
Consisting of five tracks that were recorded in 2009-2010 for his recently released LP Bad Time Zoo, Wildlife serves essentially as a teaser for the upcoming Good Time Zoo Tour, which is set to kick off September 17 in Salt Lake City, UT. That tour will also feature performances from fellow Doomtree members Cecil Otter, Paper Tiger and Lazerbeak.
Wildlife features Sims’ trademark epic, aggressive vocal stylings over equally epic, engrossing beats that flow in and out of towering choruses and socially antiqued intros. Standout tracks include “The Line,” a tale of prescription drug abuse and depression, and “Here I Stand,” a driving, track that would be perfect for any high-budget movie montage.
