The Bennett brothers might be linked by family, but they have much different strategies on the music side of things. While we have only seen three true full-lengths from Chance over the last six years, his younger brother has made sure to fill our libraries with a steady stream of new music which continued this week in the form of a surprise mixtape of loosies he packaged as ‘Throw Aways’.
The 13-track offering comes on the heels of his Restoration Of An American Idol release which did much to push Bennett more directly into his own spotlight. Sporting features from the likes of Chance, Raury, Lil Yachty and KYLE, among others, that project vaulted Bennett into the forefront of up and coming talent, cementing his abilities beyond progeny and sending him out on a headlining tour of his own and subsequent summer festival dates that should be bookended soon by something exciting for the Fall.
For it’s part, Throw Aways operates in much the same way as his 2014 release, Freshman Year: First Semester which bridged Mainstream Music and Broad Shoulders. A series of songs left on the cutting room floor, it’s a segue that proves just how much talent is consistently in the 21-year-old’s periphery. An instant standout from the project so far has been his collaboration with Chance and the Social Experiment, “Gimme A Call”. The project is only available online for a week so be sure to hit play up above, or stay tuned to Mild Sauce Radio, where there’ll be plenty of opportunities to tune in!
