New Haruruinu Love Dog Tenshi: “Liangzhou 105-B” Featuring Rikon Nozaki

The beat had me sweating when this opened up. Haruruinu Love Dog Tenshi is another artist coming up from web-centric indie communities to more exposure, and the subdued mood of early releases appeared to be tossed out the window with those opening rumbles and the general “It G Ma” rehash of it all. But thankfully the artist before the “feature” delivers with what she has done well for a while (Rikon Nozaki is…fine, but feels a bit superfluous). Haruruinu Love Dog Tenshi drifts over the beat, not trying to match it in intensity but rather turning into smoke to waft over head. It’s understated and affecting. Listen above.
