Second studio album from Los Angeles' Earl Sweatshirt. I Don't Like Shit, I Don't Go Outside - An Album by Earl Sweatshirt opens with some rather chipper organ sounds before Earl drops into what his reality is like. He's got plenty to complain about, from his girlfriend to the cliquish nature of Odd Future, and the press hounding him. The album plays out like a confessional, and it's Earl's darkest and most honest work to date. The production is bare bones, handled mostly by Earl himself. The stark beats and industrial sounds fit the lyrics like a glove. Includes the songs: "Grief," "Off Top," and "Grown Ups." Ten tracks in all. Released by Columbia.
