A film about Northwest hip-hop from 2016
If you have the chance to see Call perform, you should go. He has an electrifying live show, deeply committed, a man possessed. My expectations were high when I first pressed play on See All, and this seven-song release delivers: Every single song is a note-perfect banger. Call’s bare, emotional verses are technically precise, inventive, and playful. He is completely captivating. Vocalist Falon Sierra contributes texture on two essential tracks, the downtempo “Heal You” and the singalong “The Ghost.” In the beats and production throughout there’s a sense of motion that I love, where some elements are moving a double time and others at half-speed, like you’re running and sitting still at the same time—a pretty good metaphor for the lyrical content throughout.
