Homie Garden is 12 tracks of experimental, honest hip hop from one of Portlandâ€™s best kept secrets. Like Wool Seeâ€™s previous venture, the Winter Worn EP, this album is heavily inspired by the season of its release, from the growth-inspired title track to the unique ode to the backyard that is â€œHummingbird Hunger Games.â€ Things get a little dark elsewhere on the album which plays out like a true Northwest spring, capable of bringing picturesque sunny days and dreary, spirit-crushing ones in the same week (sometimes even the same hour).
Wool See is mostly a one-man-band with all production, instrumentation, writing and vocals handled by IAME (Sandpeople/Oldominion/McJameson). There are plenty of other members but their only roles as of now are in the spirit guide and morale-boosting departments. None of them get out as much as they should so things routinely get weird. Youâ€™ve been warned.
