(Crocodile) Since their band name is virtually ungoogleable, most familiar with the Internet (see?) already know vocalist/producer Sydney Bennett as "Syd tha Kyd," Odd Future's touring DJ and older sister of the skatepunk-rap collective's group toady Taco. While her effortlessly cool singing voice is one of the main draws of the group's future-lounge sound, the importance of producer Matt Martians is usually underestimated. A quick listen to either of Martians's releases with his other OF satellite the Jet Age of Tomorrow shows his penchant for spaced-out, jazzy, Neptunes-style production heard in much of the Internet's smoother neo-soul sound. Bonus fact: Kendrick Lamar's Section.80 hit "A.D.H.D." sampled Martians and the Jet Age of Tomorrow's "The Knight Hawk." How about that? See also My Philosophy.
