If the Cool Kids sound like the cool collision of De La Soul and the Neptunes, crew member Chuck Inglish (aka Evan Ingersoll) proves he's the best bits of Pharrell Williams and Posdnuos mixed together on this solo debut, spewing off wonderfully weird rhymes over alt-rap productions he expertly brewed himself and that borrow from outside genres, up to and including electro. In this case, Chromeo is his Daft Punk as they bring a "Get Lucky"-like groove to the neo-disco workout "Legs," while anyone familiar with Kavinsky, Giorgio Moroder, or '90s video game music will be at home with the slick nocturnal tones of "Swervin'," a nighttime highlight that could help join Schoolly D and Three 6 Mafia in any given DJ set. Despite its title, "Shitty Lullaby" is a funky, motivational number that quotes Parliament-Funkadelic while beefing up listeners with "drive a salt truck through it!," but the required amount of hip-hop anchors are here as well, like the thumping Shadyville sound of "Came Thru/Easily" with Ab-Soul and Mac Miller. Barking brute Action Bronson turns up for "Gametime" and the track is the claustrophobic blast of soul that's expected, and then there's the massive posse cut "Money Clip" with Vic Mensa, Retch, Hassani Kwess, and Sulaiman, which is one part Run-D.M.C. and one part A Tribe Called Quest. If there's a complaint to be made, it's that Convertibles is lightweight when it comes to subject matter, and with the whole whirlwind of influences flying about, the album could be taken as a slick showoff session, but these party songs stick to the bones. Skillfully strung together by ringleader Inglish, these flights of fancy turn into a substantial party album with plenty of fun and flash, so think of a more indie Pharrell or a modern ride through the Pharcyde because Convertibles is that kind of awesome. ~ David Jeffries
Artist Overview
Raised in Mount Clemens, Michigan until he relocated to the Chicago area at the age of 11, Chuck Inglish -- born Evan Ingersoll -- was one half of the 2007-formed alternative hip-hop duo the Cool Kids. Formed with Mikey Rocks, that act received critical acclaim in 2011 with their debut album, When Fish Ride Bicycles. Although Mikey Rocks was the first of the duo to sign a solo recording contract, Inglish was the first to actually put finishing touches on a solo studio album and Convertibles was expected in 2014, as was a second Cool Kids full-length, Shark Week. Between sessions for the Cool Kids releases, Inglish also lent production to material by artists such as fellow Chicago-based R&B starlet 10ille and prolific New Orleans rapper Curren$y. ~ James Wilkinson
