DTR010 - Cecil Otter 'False Hopes'

False Hopes – Cecil Otter

Like a cratedigging, nostalgic Johnny Cash, Cecil crafts dusty, moody beats. His lyrics–a cowboy kind of clever and profound–imply that whether or not he knows it, he’s last man of his kind. Production by Cecil Otter, Emily Bloodmobile, Beautful Bobby Gorgeous, Lazerbeak, and Marshall Larada.

Product Description

“Cecil Otter is a gruff, dusty producer/MC who’s stuck firmly between the abstract and the emotional, spilling his colorful guts all over beats that waver between smoky post-Muggs cratedigger moodswings and Waits-ian puffs of noise.”

—CMJ

“The passion on Cecil’s 12-song opus employs the usual Doomtree sound — heavy drums sprinkled with dusty samples and a whole lot of distortion.”
—MN Daily

“Best hats in Minneapolis.”
—DeeJay Bird
