THE NEIGHBOURHOOD – #000000 & #FFFFFF

California Indie band/collective The Neighbourhood release their DJ Drama / Don Cannon-hosted mixtape #000000 & #FFFFFFF, which blends the likes of Skeme, Raury, Casey Veggies, OG Maco, French Montana and YG with the group’s brand of Hip Hop/R&B-tinged Indie.  The tape, which also features previous singles ‘Warm‘ and ‘Jealou$y‘, is arguably the first time a band has adopted…
