Listen to Anderson .Paak’s Brand New Album, Ventura

Get ready to groove! Anderson .Paak just released his brand new album, Ventura, a soulful mix of of hip hop and R&B. Give it a listen and catch Anderson .Paak and The Free Nationals on Forecastle Saturday. 

Ventura‘s grooves are scintillating, with percussive filigree sputtering like fireworks across the album’s mix, and at its best the LP conjures vintage soul with modern beat science underpinnings, an elegant mix of tough and plush. Paak’s skill set is substantial — drummer, writer, producer, rapper, singer — and it’s a sign of the 33-year-old’s standing that the likes of Dre, Pharrell, Brandy, Kendrick LamarPusha T, Snoop, Q-TipJ. Cole, etcetera all made time for the Oxnard/Ventura sessions.” – Rolling Stone Magazine
