Listening to ADR’s forthcoming Chunky Monkey LP, there’s kind of no knowing what Gatekeeper member Aaron David Ross is going to throw at you next. “Slush Fund,” the first single, shot jazz elements like flute and vocal scat through a prism of digital glitch. “Stray Dog Strut,” by contrast, is mostly R&B vox and futuristic dub riddims, plodding along so solemnly that the only thing more surprising than the Deliverence-esque bluegrass sample he tucks into the mix is when he slips it in a second time around. Chunky Monkey is out April 14th via Hippos in Tanks.
