In early April, rapper Joey Aich released the Castle EP, which included a pair of songs that played like alternates of our current reality: "Castle," a quarantined tune about living a walled-up life, and "Rossi on the Deck," an outdoor anthem about partying in close-quarters with friends that now feels like a distant fantasy.

This week, Aich returns with his next building block, Construction, featuring tracks like "Inside" (about his inner-motivations and not the living situation to which we've all become unfortunately accustomed) and "Back Nine," which is more about the ground the rapper has left to cover than the idea he's close to calling it a game.

You can listen to the new EP now here via Aich's Bandcamp.
