Zack de la Rocha Releases “digging for windows” From Forthcoming Solo Album

Produced By El-P And Available Now For Free Download
 
 Zack de la Rocha – digging for windows
fuck that bright shit
the spot or the flashlights
we in la ducking both
in the shadows with lead pipes
the days are all night
see if i pay edison
no medicine
these blues ain’t more better when
my fever rise in the jungle
as quick as the price spikes
the days are all night
my future snapped like a rubber band
off my fold on a hand to hand
he drew from his waist
i put two in his roof
and i can still hear his screams
all night
now they ride their portfolios
like rodeos
rise every time my cherry glows
on the end of my cig as
the smoke blows through the bars
and the co’s laugh fades
as he strolls away
says i gotta pay
off that roll away
or its fuck your visitation days
and i pop off so in solitaire
i dream of offing these fred astaires
and the skin off my fingers tear
we digging for windows here
where the days are all night
this city’s a trap my partner
under the lights of they choppers
bodies tools for they coffers
not worth the cost of our coffins
i stare at a future so toxic
no trust in the dust of a promise
won’t mark the name on a ballot
so they can be free to devour our options
and just like you I’m a target
ill defined by the guap in my pocket
but the stage make figures
as quick as it off em
what marley  and pac get?
i put these caps in capitals
leave minds blazed in they capitols
i step with a fury so actual fact
that my offense could be capital

we digging for windows here

PRAISE FOR FLUME

 

“With that kind of control over his songs and performers, Flume could easily evolve into a sought-after producer.” –Pitchfork

“If this track is any indicator to the forth-coming release, then you can bet your bootstraps I will be snagging a copy, as should you.” – Earmilk,on Freddie Gibbs collaboration

“Streten has cultivated a sense of what goes unnaturally well together.” –The Village Voice

“Lost in space effects, enchantingly warped guitars, beats that scratch at the door and surprising dips into soul and R&B all vie for attention space.” –Los Angeles Times

“… 21-year-old Harley Streten has seemingly risen from nowhere to produce one of the most exciting electronic debuts of the year.” –eMusic

“Which isn’t to say these aren’t catchy recordings. On the contrary, Flume has a knack for layering beats, instruments, samples, and vocals in a way that grabs your attention and creates an evocative, somewhat hypnotic mood.” –All Music

“[“Left Alone” is] one of the most soulful songs of the year, and it was made by two Australian kids with computers. That’s 2013 to me.” –The A.V. Club

“…don’t be surprised to see the rising producer, whose self-titled debut was released in the states last month, play bigger and bigger venues with each tour.” –Fuse

“…I expect the record will soar enough to carry his name off of his own continent.” –PopMatters

Take the Jewels and Run – El-P and Killer Mike’s Priceless Collab Record Masterpiece

Since 2002, Jaime Meline (best known by his rapper moniker El-P) has unknowingly become one of the most important rap artists of this generation. In an era where sensationalism and lavishness has conquered the hip-hop scene, El-P has locked himself away in his laboratory, all while creating memorable and poetic lyrical escapades that no one has come close to matching. Well…except Michael Render (best known as Killer Mike). Killer Mike has guest rapped on tracks by Jay-Z, OutKast and T.I., but once he started making solo albums, you could see that he didn’t really fit in with many of the artists he collaborated with. Much like El-P, Killer Mike is an intellectual rapper, one disguised behind a very approachable rapping style. When these two geniuses united on Killer Mike’s 2012 solo record, R.A.P. Music (with El-P running production), it was clear that these guys had unquestionable musical chemistry. R.A.P. Music became one of the best received albums of 2012 and anticipation for whatever they were cooking up next was reaching a crazy high. R.A.P. Music let Killer Mike’s intense rap delivery shine, with El-P’s production injecting subtle and textured concentration to the already sturdy tracks. With the duo’s official collaboration album Run the Jewels, El-P and Killer Mike let both of their established essences go crazy.

Meline’s fascination with post-apocalyptic sci-fi is what made his previous two solo albums so potent. From the frightening visions demonstrated in “Habeas Corpses (Draconian Love)” from I’ll Sleep When You’re Dead to the paranoia-infused rhymes of “True Story” from Cancer 4 Cure, it’s clear that the Philip K. Dick fan is making something far beyond the typical rhyming mindset. The steady beats don’t clash with El-P’s signature spacey production, like the haunting piano line in “DDFH” or the otherworldly distorted synth on the opening to “Get It.” The bizarre sampling and subtle uses of melody throughout the tracks signifies a yearning to experiment. That’s always been Meline’s vibe and it’s tough to see a better example of it than here.

But El-P’s influence is only one side of the brain. Killer Mike is a monster of a rapper and the way he so forcefully delivers the already intricate rhymes on “36” Chain” alongside El-P’s spacey, but echoing production is something even unlike the already amazing R.A.P. Music. “Job Well Done” punches listeners in the face with a thunderous beat; Killer Mike raps in an unreal way, one of the strongest and most intense performances on the album, but also one with a relaxed finesse. Behind the surreal beats and rhythms, Render is a blunderbuss, a rapper who blows down the doors with his rhymes and pushes back anything that gets in his way.

But it’s when these two minds come together that it’s clear there’s something special going on with Run the Jewels. One of the signature tracks “Sea Legs” has a surprisingly catchy chorus, behind lyrics that echo El-P’s literary brilliance, all with Killer Mike on the frontlines, never stopping the onslaught. “Job Well Done” has a fantastic guest appearance by Until the Ribbon Breaks and an ethereal chorus that stands out on the album considerably. The other guest appearances from Prince Paul and OutKast’s Big Boi layer the already fantastic tracks even further, slamming a varied approach to the album and keeping the whole thing feeling fresh. Even during the points where the duo hearkens back to their past projects like in “No Come Down” (which would sound perfect on Cancer 4 Cure or R.A.P. Music), there’s no sense of fatigue. Every bit of energy any musician can direct toward an album is present on Run the Jewels, but even with that, it’s an organic, almost playful album. It shows not only how seriously the duo works with their craft, but also how effortlessly they can make something truly brilliant.

Run the Jewels isn’t as cosmic as Cancer 4 Cure, nor is it as thunderous as PL3DGE, but there’s a steady balance that both Meline and Render contribute to the album. Each artist does what they do best, all without compromising the other. It doesn’t even feel like a collaboration; it feels like a rap duo purely drenched in synergy. There are no seams, no holes in the patchwork. Run the Jewels is an effortless hit, one where two undeniably talented artists leave no stone un-turned in making the album stunningly different from the rest, but still enough at home to avoid alienating either of their groups of followers.

Don’t listen to Run the Jewels because of the collaborators’ past experiences. Don’t listen to it because of the unorthodox musical approaches. Hell, don’t listen to it because it’s free to download. Listen to Run the Jewels because it’s one of the best rap albums around right now.

Run the Jewels will appear at Pittsburgh’s Altar Bar on Saturday, July 13.

Listen to “Iodine,” New Song off When Saints Go Machine’s Infinity Pool

LISTEN TO WHEN SAINTS GO MACHINE’S “IODINE,” SECOND SINGLE OFF
NEW ALBUM, INFINITY POOL, OUT MAY 28 ON !K7 RECORD

 

When Saints Go Machine release their sophomore album, Infinity Poolon May 28th on !K7. It’s an album born out of an atmosphere of chaos, showing the band — Nikolaj Manuel Vonsild (vocals), Jonas Kenton (keyboard), Simon Muschinsky (keyboards), and Silas Moldenhawer (drums) — operating outside of their comfort zone, an approach leading to great results for this four-piece from Copenhagen. As with debut album Konkyliemost of the productions consist of layers built upon layers in each song, however, with Infinity Pool, they aimed to make each layer sound immediate and simple resulting in a harder, darker, slower and more synthetic feel. Regardless of approach and environment, Infinity Pool still retains that signature When Saints Go Machine longing feeling, the glue that holds the album together. Following “Love and Respect” feat. Killer Mike, listen to Infinity Pool‘s second single, “Iodine,” below.

LISTEN TO WHEN SAINTS GO MACHINE’S “IODINE” –

 

“Love and Respect” ft. Killer Mike (Unkwon Remix) –

“Love and Respect” ft. Killer Mike (Teengirl Fantasy Remix) –

PRAISE FOR “LOVE AND RESPECT” FEAT. KILLER MIKE” AND “IODINE”:

“When Saints Go Machine’s general prerogative of making filmic music fronted with Arthur Russell-redolent vocals is entirely upheld here, though the presets and sounds on ‘Iodine’s’ electronic production are particularly well-crafted, and the flip from minor key to major for the hook is thereby particularly sublime. Recommended listening . . .” — Stereogum

“[Iodine] is filled with hooks and rhythmic echoes that send you into a shadowy daydream you may never want to leave.” – The FADER

 

” . . . the first single from the forthcoming Infinity Pool defies expectations again. Curiously, Killer Mike plays the lead performer here, riding the blend of beats and soft tones with commanding ease. But then vocalist Nikolaj Manuel Vonsild brings his sweet voice to the break, almost a guest on his band’s work for once but providing the key central anchor nonetheless.” — Pitchfork

 

“‘Iodine’ blends soulful, warped vocals with an off-kilter, cinematic groove . . . ” — SPIN

 

“The selection of Killer Mike as guest MC on this, the lead single from the band’s upcoming sophomore album, ‘Infinity Pool,’ is both beguiling and the best thing ever.” — Billboard

 

“a percussive thumper slathered with hyperactive synths and frontman Nikolaj Manuel Vonsild’s quietly affecting falsetto which quickly reaches up into the rafters.” — Beats Per Minute

 

“Weaving together a deep, bumpin’ groove and cool, tingly vocals, ‘Iodine’ is a slick, yet booming and serpentine number that quickly wraps itself tightly around the listener . . .” — Consequence of Sound
