In today’s age, technology has flooded our lives with content. Caught in the mire are today’s musicians who champion an artform that’s more widely distributed than any other throughout human history. And we, more often than not, overlook the music created by unfamiliar faces because it’s challenging. We’d rather have an easy listen, a known quantity to skim through while we think about something else.
Hearing is easy, but listening is difficult. Welcome to “Why We Like It”, where we rebuke the trends in favor of thoughtful analysis and underknown sounds.
“Caterpillar Motion” – Sudo Williams
How We Found It:
Sudo Williams came to our attention a month ago when he submitted “Caterpillar Motion” to our portal on SubmitHub. He showcased such a high level of personality and skill I was immediately inclined to feature him here.
Why We Like It:
After establishing a head-nodding hip-hop beat that has a dash of wonder to it, “Caterpillar Motion” erupts with personality as Sudo Williams arrives performing the hook. Like Peter Piper, Sudo Williams seems to have the entire instrumental follow his melody, creating a universe that is commanded by his vocals. The beautifully strange momentum the “Caterpillar Motion” establishes does not diminish once Williams switches from singing to rapping. His flow finds its home in the instrumental, weaving between the drums like Leo Messi through an opposition defence. “Caterpillar Motion” will immediately sell you on Sudo Williams as an artist. His vocal delivery and production are too distinct for them to ever leave your mind. “Caterpillar Motion” is a song that begs for repetition, as you know you will struggle to find the energy the track provides anywhere else.
From The Artist:
Caterpillar Motion is about taking your time in what you do, even if everyone doesn’t understand why you are.” – Sudo Williams
