Hot on the heels of his acclaimed double album Being Ridden, CEX (aka Rjyan Kidwell) drops another hot disc of genre-defiling genius that solidifies his burgeoning superstar status. Maryland Mansions finds an apt home on Jade Tree's diverse roster after a label-interest melee -- as CEX'S last two releases received exuberant, fawning.
We now find Kidwell, at the ripe age of 21, dropping his fifth full length to a rabid and growing worldwide audience. Maryland Mansions is a groundbreaking mix of glitchtronic hooks, classic party rap, NIN-inspired darkwave crunch topped with loquacious rhymes. The result is an album that evidences CEX as one of the most exciting things going in American music.
