On the third installment of his album series titled after seasons, Portland rapper Illmac comes through with another helping of impressive penmanship. Sonically speaking, the aesthetic difference between Atmn, Sprng, and Smmr is minute. It’s completely conceivable that a song from one project could find it’s way on to another and still fit into the album as a whole. There are a few lyrical references to fall—leaves turning brown, hoodie season, the weather getting colder– throughout the tracklist, but it’s not a constant enough theme to have the project deemed a “concept album.” Rather than view these projects as albums to be listened to during a certain time of year, I think the listener should think of them more as time capsules, songs that were written during the titular season. From the release schedule of the albums, (Sprng being released at the beginning of summer, Atmn being released at the beginning of winter, etc) I think it can be inferred that all songs on a given installment were produced in the 3-month interim period.
