Shabazz Palaces
“An Echo From the Hosts That Profess In Infinitum”
Live at KEXP, 2011

I’m at the point where I’m pretty sure that Shabazz Palaces’ Black Up is the best rap album I’ve heard in years. And you know, you can grain-of-salt that, I’m not a “head” or anything. But I do hear a lot of rap records and this one is just pure brilliance with absolutely no filler.

Com Truise - Polyhurt

This week’s Gorilla vs. Bear installment of Sirius | XM Blog Radio featured a few cuts from Bumbershoot artists, including “Polyhurt” from the wittily named Com Truise.

Head on over to G v B to download “Polyhurt” as well as new tracks from Shabazz Palaces and Purity Ring.
