We're not really into fighting, so we gave The War On Drugs and Shabazz Palaces equal billing on next week's release sheet.
The War On Drugs is Adam Granduciel, Slave Ambient is the second album, and it's a brilliant sprawl of rock n roll via Secretly Canadian. "I really like it", says Sales Guy, "it's kinda Springsteen." Listen and watch over at SC.
Shabazz Palaces Black Up is out on Sub Pop. The project is lead by lyricist Ishmael Butler aka Palaceer Lazaro, formerly of Digable Planets and Cherrywine. Bold, experimental, cryptic and dark, it's going straight into the RM staff car player (well, it will, as soon as that vehicle's returned from the panelbeaters).
