“Wooly Mammoth” is the opening track from San Diego producer Room E‘s upcoming debut LP, Penguin Child (artwork above). The work of ambient, instrumental hip-hop is anchored by live drumming, as it shuffles along its three-minute course. It glistens with breezy samples and buzzes with hints of bass for its first two minutes, until a more subdued, string-laden outro closes the last minute of the affair. Look for Room E’s new album to drop via London-based imprint Proper Songs on May 28.
