Sub Pop's little curveball this year comes by way of Shabazz Palaces and, Black Up, out today. You can read a stellar review of the album from Zach at We Listen For You - HERE. You can also stream the entire record HERE to get a feel before you click 'buy.' Although, this is probably one should just go ahead and take the gamble on. If you haven't been in the loop, this album is probably going to top many year-end lists with its excellently rendered blend of hip hop, intelligent production, and varietal shifts into genre-bending waters. The downloadable track,"An Echo from the Hosts that Profess Infinitum," works as an advertisement to the overall nature of what the album emits. However, it's a microcosm of the entire sound that leaps through the speakers with each spin. Zach's review above does the trick with regards to discussing where this whole album fits categorically and buzz-wise. Enjoy the MP3 and snag the album via Sub Pop HERE.
