Album Stones Throw STH2067

Description: The debut album of Dudley Perkins under his own name as one of the most unconventional soul singers known to the world of music.  This record began as a one-off with the song “Flowers”.  We asked Dudley & Madlib for more, and we got A Lil' Light.

From Pop Matters in 2003: "It was around the time of the Quasimoto sessions that Madlib and Dudley/Declaime first stumbled across what would become the indisputably unique R&B sound of A Lil' Light.

'Flowers' was, at first, little more than an experiment, its lilting four-chord piano progression and chill boom-bap a chance for Declaime to stretch out the singing chops that his melodic flow implied. But the finished song, with its stream-of-consciousness lyrics and a vocal veering from utterly heartfelt to self-effacingly off-key, ultimately revealed much more than a rapper trying to sing -- it revealed an entirely new personality buried under Declaime's West Coast rap steez.

The track caught the attention of a few people, got released as a 7-inch single, and now, three years later, we get a whole album of tracks that are nearly its equal in their simple, off-the-cuff brilliance."
