I've been lurking. I signed up to this forum just to post this: "Life and Times of Lucha Lonely" is a classic that deserves as much love as it can get. Nothing else out there, not even from Kdot or his usual collaborators, sounds anything like it, and lyrically, it's alternately chilling, funny, and even heartwarming. It's raw gritty lofi realness that, at times seems to be speaking specifically about events in my own life. Part of me wants a sequel, part of me wants this to stand alone, a one-of-a-kind gem.
That link to Lucha Lonely is the same one I've found that seems to be corrupted. On every computer I've tried opening it on, no matter how many different times I download it, the RAR will not extract cleanly... "Whole Lotta Tears" is either missing or incomplete. So I patched the missing piece of the song with the sound from the Youtube version. Anyone who's had issues with the RAR linked earlier in the thread, try this instead:
(sorry, I'm apparently too new and not able to post links. Attached is a picture containing the link text - type it in to download the patched album.)
Enjoy,and thanks KDOT.

^^Yeah I've listened to it really like it too but got some have mixed feelings.
It's an extremely vulnerable album. The opening, as you were saying, sounded way too much like my life (making love to myself, alone, with the comfort of the drugs, by myself) people who can accurately articulate things in my life is my sought after aspect in music.
Kdot can say this kinda shit without sounding gimmicky or fishing for easy sympathy, it seems like he kinda relishes in his own self loathing. MF doom is such an obvious example of this, but whatever. kdot is more rock influenced, real miserable kurt cobain imagery, as oppose to doom, with the 50's cartoon superheroes and cult references. Mr.Mutha****ingExxquire is a good current comparison, in terms of lyrical content, not in music.
**BTW its way fucking weird trying to analyze dude now that hes been on here. I liked knowing i was talking to a blank wall now i feel like dude is right there**
It's the most distinct sounding release out of all of them for sure, I wanna say its a concept album in something but i cant entirely put in words what. It has this old western flavor going.
I gotta be honest i don't care for Kdots slow drawled out delivery throughout it, however. At parts, over certain loops it sounds really great, but as a whole its not as engaging. It's the "primacy effect" from psychology, (your opinion on someone is based on first interaction) and i like it when kdot flows faster like he did on trap jesus, which was my introduction. I'm not trying to say it makes this release inferior, it's just doesn't have the same energy.
Has a great voice for acapella, or you know some real spoken word poetry jam **** probably
i only drink when i drive, i only drive when im high
i wonder what the crowd response was like

I'd rank them:
1. Trap Jesus
2. The Life and Times of Lucha Lonely
4. Drugstore Cowboys
Am I missing something?
Lucha Lonely is close to Trap Jesus. Buckwheats is great too, Doc, but a little bit of a step down from the top two, IMO.
