Take A Listen To Shabazz Palaces – Black Up

Turn the bass up and feel this, this is not one to listen to.

Shabazz Palaces, a project out of Seattle, Washington is not trying to adhere to your concept of form and arrangement. Maybe it has something to do with the lush forest airs of the Pacific Northwest, the same region that birthed Kurt Cobain and Nirvana to the world or the fact that the project is headed by Palaceer Lazaro formerly known as Ishmael ‘Butterfly’ Butler of the hip hop group that paid homage to Jazz, Digable Planets.

Either way, this album is uncompromising without going out of its way to be premeditatedly avant-garde. It comes with organic funk, dub, jazz and african influences a punk attitude and crazy beats for the heads.

Take a listen, stream the full album below and pick it up at Sub Pop Records.
