Childish Gambino

Because the Internet (Glassnote)

Waterparks Man Gets Childish: Awsten Knight of Houston pop-punk band Waterparks told us about his love for Childish Gambino.

Awsten Knight: My favorite album is probably Because The Internet by Childish Gambino. It’s one I consistently go back to and have for years. It feels creative other worldly and indulgent but also still has bangers when it’s TIME to have bangers, it’s the perfect balance for me.


That approach was a huge inspiration for Greatest Hits because I realized along with that record, all my favorites are on the lengthier side and do cool experimental things that open your mind in the way that quick singles can’t. Him, Ludwig, Stefan, all of them are so insanely talented. I don’t know any of them personally but they help me keep myself in check regarding quality and push me into experimenting in ways that I might not otherwise. If any of them see this for any reason, I love and respect you!
