Sweet Valley – “Suzuka 9 Hours”

Sweet Valley - Stay CalmHere’s another new one from Sweet Valley — the hip-hop side project of Wavves’ Nathan Williams and his brother Joel, aka Kynan.

“Suzuka 9 Hours” isn’t quite as seasonal as “Malibu Games” or “Total Carnage.” The down-beat samples, led by a chopped-up harpsichord riff, turn into Flying Lotus 8-bit electronica at the end. It ditches the carefree vibe from the first two tracks to make the duo’s most serious hip-hop yet.

The new track comes with the announcement that Sweet Valley will play with GZA, Killer Mike and Bear Hands on the upcoming 64 Squares Tour. See the dates after the jump.

Sweet Valley’s debut, Stay Calm, is out August 7 on Fool’s Gold.
