Public Spreads the News
Treat Yourself [album stream]

Public Spreads The News is the culture jamming mission of Wes Ables, and Treat Yourself is a 10-track, re-appropriated Tom Haverford mantra that straddles the line between psychedelic bedroom funk and mixtape hip-hop instrumentals. This Ailanthus Recordings issue relies on loops and samples, but rather than layering elements into oblivion, Ables opts for sturdy, sleek structures that he then breaks and rebuilds. Ables is flexing as a craftsman with the display of the grooves he’s molded from a small set of simple sounds.
