Chances are we've all succumbed to boredom and whipped up our fair share of dalgona coffee concoctions while stuck in quarantine, but Chelsea Peretti just topped that by releasing an entire coffee-themed EP, making it her second musical project since her iconic 'Coffee Crankin Thru My Sys' debut in 2012.
"The creative spirit must ultimately sing in whatever form," she writes on Instagram. "For me to instantaneously be hailed as one of the foremost musicians of the century isnt a label I asked for but is one that is probably heading my way. It doesnt matter. I reject labels. This is why I made a concept album entirely about coffee except for a couple songs. I do what I want. I am a free mind."
Foam and Floatsam, features five songs from her upcoming album that she wrote and produced with Kool Kojak, from the hilariously self-aware 'LATE' to 'DAD', a tune that sounds like something written by Jake Peralta from Brooklyn Nine-Nine, which is currently streaming on Netflix. The EP also saw collaborations with special guests Reggie Watts, CHIKA, and Will Schwartz.
Peretti has released music videos for two of her songs, 'LATE' and 'OATMILK', the latter featuring comedians Joel Kim Booster and John Early.
In an interview with Vulture, she revealed that she had initially asked jazz legend Anita Baker to be on the album, and that while it did not go through, she "remained on [their] team as a guide".
