Rizzle Kicks, a badass British hip-hop duo with a honey-badger-don’t-care attitude, may be difficult to categorize for the average American listener. That’s why I like them. Their breakaway hit, “Down With the Trumpets,” is a roof-raising jam with a persistent, synthy beat that literally makes me want to get down. With, you know, trumpets. I could go on and on about why Rizzle Kicks’ quirkiness is a refreshing addition to the pop landscape, or why English accents in rap sound novel and cool, or whether my taste in music indicates I should pack up and move to London immediately.
But I’m too busy jamming.
