• shabazz palaces Quazarz Vs. the Jealous Machines (silver vinyl LP, £20.50)

    label: sub pop

    ‘Quazarz Vs The Jealous Machines’ is one of two new albums by interstellar hip hop enigma Shabazz Palaces - aka Ishmael Butler (who, in another galaxy, performs in Digable Planets) - and Tendai Maraire.  ‘Quazarz Vs The Jealous Machines’ and its simultaneously released companion ‘Quazarz: Born On A Gangster Star’ were both produced by Knife Knights (i.b e.b.) and mixed by Blood.  Quazarz came to the Earth from somewhere else, a musical ambassador from his place to ours. Somehow, through fire or through fury, the Palaceer of Shabazz Palaces caught wind of the tale and it is through his prism that we hear the story.  LP format includes digital download code.
