WZRD – “WZRD”

In a world of corporately designed musical acts crafted in boardrooms amongst sales-minded suits aiming simply to push copies, it is refreshing when someone steps out and does their own thing. Love ‘em or hate ‘em, you’ve gotta respect them. You could tell Kid Cudi was one of these types when you first heard “Day ‘n’ Nite” and its modern day midnight toker lyrics and beat. If you’re a Cudi fan, you may have already heard the debut album from his side-project with Dot da Genius, WZRD, since it leaked about a week ago, but if you haven’t, you’re in for a treat. Cudi says they were inspired by Hendrix, Nirvana and Pink Floyd, and the cover of “Where Did You Sleep Last Night?” is good enough to have made Kurt Cobain crack a little smile.
